Rebirth Brass Band
Whether seen on HBO’s Treme or at their legendary Tuesday night gig at The Maple Leaf, Grammy-winning Rebirth Brass Band is a true New Orleans institution. Formed in 1983 by the Frazier brothers, the band has evolved from playing the streets of the French Quarter to playing festivals and stages all over the world. While committed to upholding the tradition of brass bands, they have also extended themselves into the realms of funk and hip-hop to create their signature sound. “Rebirth can be precise whenever it wants to,” says The New York Times, “but it’s more like a party than a machine. It’s a working model of the New Orleans musical ethos: as long as everybody knows what they’re doing, anyone can cut loose.” In the wake of the sometimes-stringent competition among New Orleans brass bands, Rebirth is the undisputed leader of the pack, and they show no signs of slowing down.
Following the Grammy-winning Rebirth of New Orleans, Rebirth Brass Band is at it again with Move Your Body, an infectious, groove-laden collection of hip-shakers sure to saturate the dance floor.
Rollicking originals like "Who's Rockin, Who's Rollin'"? and "Take 'Em to the Moon" reaffirm the band's position as head of the brass throne while the rasta-esque "On My Way" and leave-nothing-to-the-imagination lyrics of "HBNS" showcase the unit's talent for penning unabashed party starters.
Boasting a mastery of Rebirth's signature "heavy funk" sound, Move Your Body pushes and swings, leaving behind an 11 track thumbprint, approved by the Frazier brothers themselves, of a sultry Tuesday night spent dancing on their home court at the Maple Leaf Bar in New Orleans.
Miss Mojo is a soul-pop band based in New Orleans, LA that strives to move audiences through its potent songwriting and high-energy live performances. The band’s creative strength draws from neo-soul and New Orleans’ extensive funk tradition, producing smooth and soulful original music in which “hip” and “pop” flawlessly coexist. Years of playing in the city’s vibrant live music scene has sculpted Miss Mojo’s memorable performance style, which engages audiences and displays the band members’ passion for making music together. With the dynamic combo of Jenna Winston and Piper Browne serving as the voice of the band, Miss Mojo also seeks to use its platform to highlight the power of women through music.
In January of 2017, Miss Mojo released its debut EP, Up & Personal, a six-track album whose soulful ballads and body-loosening funk tunes demonstrate the band’s versatility. The group released its’ full length debut, Love In Time, in June of 2018. This new album displays the bands stylistic development as well as a more holistic approach to the album writing process. The record jumps between genres while simultaneously sticking to an overarching thematic element, leading the listener through a sonic and emotional journey of the ups and downs in love.
Miss Mojo has shared stages with many of New Orleans’ most iconic acts, such as Dumpstaphunk, Rebirth Brass Band, Big Sam’s Funky Nation and Naughty Professor. Constantly learning from and being inspired by musicians in the city, the band is in a state of continuous growth. With the release of a new record and plans of national tours, Miss Mojo is hitting 2018 running and not looking back. They’re thrilled to be bringing their sound and energy to audiences across the country, celebrating life through playing, moving and singing together.
