5-26-2011 Rebirth Brass Band @ the Cabooze

Minneapolis is one of the only cities in the nation to have an actual homegrown brass band scene.  Thanks to Jack Brass Band who continually bring this New Orleans street setting home & everywhere they go.  Rebirth’s been cultivating that groove for decades now serving as mentors to bands brandishing brass instruments.

These spirited musicians all share one wondrous common ability, they know how to get people dancing.

Jack Brass Band fabulously led off the night with splendor & rising energy at the CaboozeRebirth turned up the heat & subsequently stirred up the brass enticed booty bouncing funk soul.  They saucily sauntered thru swagger spiked sets of their most dance worthy songs.  The 2nd set was ripe with such succulent treats  & freak faves as “Rebirth Got Fire”, “I Feel Like Funkin it up”, “Casanova” & Big Easy theme song “Do Whatcha Wanna”.  The show was action packed & high powered as the onstage antics propelled the thrusting dancefloor.

The show was pulsating with hard winded passion & unrestrained party down candor.  Luckily for the Twin Cities, prestigious ballistic brass purveyors like Rebirth frequent our clubs & festivals.  New Orleans vibe.

If & when you are ever in New Orleans, please do yourself a freakin favor & seek out some high quality live brass band treasures.  They should be just about everywhere.  Feels like the heart beat of the old music they have down the Mississippi.  Savor this magic.
