Rebirth Brass Band

Tuesday nights since 1990

Simply put, the Grammy Award winning Rebirth Brass Band is a New Orleans institution. Formed in 1983 by the Frazier brothers, “Tuba Phil” & Keith, the band has evolved from playing the streets of the French Quarter to playing festivals and stages all over the world.  Rebirth is committed to upholding the tradition of brass bands while at the same time incorporating modern music into their sound.  Their signature brand of heavy funk has not only won over several generations of music lovers, it has become the soundtrack to an entire city. In 2012 the band was awarded their first, and well deserved Grammy for Best Regional Roots Album. Longtime band members include: 

  • Phil Frazier – Tuba
  • Keith Frazier - Bass Drum
  • Derek Shezbie – Trumpet
  • Glen Andrews – Trumpet, 
  • Stafford Agee – Trombone, 
  • Derrick Tabb (founder of The Roots of Music) - Snare Drum
  • Vincent Broussard – Saxophone
  • Chaderick Honroe – Trumpet 

Famous Rebirth Alums include Kermit Ruffins, Shamarr Allen, Corey Henry and Glen David Andrews.
