- Rebirth Brass Band
Rebirth began in 1983 as a band project of high-school student Phil Frazier, who was in marching band. He, his brother Keith, and some of his friends would go into the French Quarter and play for tips, and things just grew from there. Twelve albums later, Rebirth is the best taste a midwesterner can have of the freewheeling, life-loving, ground-level daily existence that the Big Easy represents. Though Katrina proved a setback, Rebirth is stronger than ever, having just released Never a Dull Moment, a DVD retrospective and documentary.
