Rebirth Brass Band Unveil ‘Rebirth Groove’ Single

A New Orleans institution for more than three decades, the Rebirth Brass Band have been leaders of the brass band revival since brothers Phil and Keith Frazier, along with Kermit Ruffins, formed the group in 1983.  It’s a journey that’s taken them from the French Quarter to sold out tours and appearing on HBO’s critically-acclaimed Treme. Now Rebirth Brass Band are following up the success of their Grammy-winning Rebirth of New Orleans with Move Your Body, and it’s first single, “Rebirth Groove.”

An infectious brew of jazzy horns, sliding, slippery bass, syncopated drums and the band’s call-and-response vocals, the track reeks of one big Crescent City party. It’s a fitting introduction to an album packed full of hip shakers like “Who’s Rockin’, Who’s Rollin’?” and “Take ‘Em To The Moon,” as well as the rasta-infused “On My Way.”

Move Your Body comes out June 24. Listen to “Rebirth Groove” HERE, and view the band’s list of tour dates below.
