Rebirth Brass Band Brings Sounds of New Orleans to Paper Tiger


  • Ian Frank
If you’re unfamiliar with Louisiana’s Rebirth Brass Band, a Grammy-winning group formed in early '80s New Orleans that was featured in HBO’s post-Katrina Treme, you best get your ass down to Paper Tiger 'cause these folks know how to turn up.
