REBIRTH BRASS BAND (Art by Frenchy in New Orleans Frenchy Live)



Cha Wa performing with friend guest Papa Mali tremendously moved me this spring at the 2016 New Orleans Jazzfest. I mean literally & emotionally as my excitable passion led me to daringly dance like a bliss borne rabid loon roaming the swampy Louisiana terrain, which in this case was the Jazz & Heritage stage. The name Cha Wa derives from a widely used slang saying that means “we comin’ for ya” in the marching Mardi Gras Indian tribes’ ongoing culture.

Cha Wa is led by founding members Joe Gelini (on drums), Sam Dickey (on guitar) & singer dancer J’Wan Boudreaux (Wild Magnolia’s Big Chief Monk Boudreaux’s young grandson) in most extraordinary Mardi Gras Indian fashion shining forth with their intense music & energizing vibe vividly portraying their amazing family history & truly the tribe’s living legacy.

As a seasoned veteran of 27 jazzfests in New Orleans, I grew up with Rebirth prominent in my expansive music scenery centric life. From my early 20s & now into my 50s, I have exquisitely enjoyed RBB’s manic music, delicious vibe, & profound presence on the local scene, which transcends into the greater national & international realm at large. I wish them even larger success & a brightest future ahead.

These are 2 of the hottest New Orleans born & raised premiere street funk party bands going & rollin’ as we dancingly traipse into the 21st century.

Spread the good word far & wide to make sure we’re all on board for this fantastic freaking voyage with our dreamy Rebirth & Cha Wa leading the explosive charge.

Join us for this incredibly festive evening of pleasure ensuing New Orleans live wire entertainment at the intimate Dakota, known for stellar live music & amazing food.

Rebirth Brass Band with Cha Wa hits the stage on Saturday August 13, 2016 for 2 sensational shows at 7pm & 10pm. Let’s roll.
