The Rebirth Brass Band, a trombone-toting, Grammy-winning collective from the French Quarter, comes out swinging at The Cubby Bear in a fiery celebration for hip-shakers and funk aficionados. From beat-heavy hits such as "Do Whatcha Wanna" and "The Law" to the chant-driven "Here to Stay," the collective sears itself into the brains of dance enthusiasts with drum-fueled performances and a range that climbs higher than a Sherman tank mowing up a rainbow. Fresh off the stumps of its latest album in a nearly 30-year career, Rebirth of New Orleans, Rebirth Brass Band tramples the stage, digging holes all the way through The Cubby Bear's secret cemetery as fans share the joys of dancing along.
Rusted Root unreels psychedelic improvisations driven by African, Middle Eastern, and Latin American percussion and singer Michael Glabicki's rubber-band vocals. Exuding positive vibes and life-affirming philosophies, the group is on tour for the brand-new album, The Movement, released Tuesday, October 30. Live, they transform the stage into a campfire sing-along with starry-eyed camaraderie and celebratory backing vocals, slinging drums over their shoulders as they chant the famed chorus to the hit “Send Me on My Way.” The richly instrumental ensemble is joined by Lauren Mann & the Fairly Odd Folk, who wrap the melancholy tenderness of Mann's voice in an éclair of multipart harmonies.
