We’ve filmed Rebirth Brass Band before. The first time was in a Yurt in the mountains of Colorado. So it was neither on our home turf nor theirs. It felt a little weird to do it like that. Obviously it was still good, but mama always said if you’re going to do it, do it right. So a do-over with this Grammy Award winning outfit was most certainly on our bucket-list. Here’s the re-do.

We shot it on a hot and sticky day in the French Quarter. Members of the band rolled up on foot, car, bike, all carrying their instrument cases, a tell-tale badge of so many musicians wandering the streets of New Orleans. They carry those cases from gig to gig, practice to practice, you know what they play by the size of their case. Their passion latched inside, resting on a bed of soft velvet, waiting to be unleashed upon their next stopping point. So this was more like it. Because Rebirth is great wherever, but perhaps greatest when sweating under that New Orleans sun…

Catch them when they come to your neck of the woods, here’s their tour dates!
