Rebirth Brass Band
Simply put, The Rebirth Brass Band is a New Orleans institution. Formed in 1983 by the now infamous Frazier brothers, 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 show. Their signature brand of brass funk has won over several generations of music lovers, and in a post-Katrina world, their name and music have become the soundtrack to their musically rich hometown.

In the wake of the sometimes-stringent competition amongst brass bands, Rebirth is the undisputed leader of the pack, and they show no signs of slowing down.
Funk Ark - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Funk Ark
Some might say that Keyboardist Will Rast has an almost preternatural ability when it comes to finding the talent to match a vision. In 2007 he conceived of The Funk Ark while listening to James Brown…a lot. What emerged from his study in classic grooves is a 9-piece pure funk ensemble that combines an eclectic mix of the area’s most unique talent from a range of musical sensibilities. A blend of vintage style and modern daring, the Funk Ark is at the forefront of the DC funk revolution.
The Funk Ark performs original Afro-beat-inspired compositions written by Will Rast and lends their own unique flavor to funk classics. With their infectious layers of percussion, rhythm and brass, the Funk Ark has been known to cause spontaneous dance parties and to bring even the most reluctant to their feet.
Essentially, The Funk Ark is a collaboration of everything that makes the DC scene an ever-evolving force in the funk world.
