Rebirth Brass Band is among the headliners for this year's Festival en el Barrio, which is just around the corner this Sunday.
The New Orleans nine-piece formed 30 years ago, and, with their last 10 records, have made a name for themselves, expanding from the streets of their hometown to venues all over the world. Taking traditional brass influences and mixing them with modern funk elements, the band has put a refreshing twist on a genre that has been around for decades.
The band's three decades together have clearly honed their performance, and their live show on Sunday, if it's anything like the other live videos online, should showcase their laid-back style, a trait that likely only comes from years of jamming on the streets of New Orleans.
Rebirth Brass Band will take the El Presidio Stage on Sunday night from 4:25 to 5:05 p.m. Find more information on the festival's website.
