Rebirth Brass Band releases new single just in time for Fat Tuesday

Just in time for Fat Tuesday, the Rebirth Brass Brand has released a new single.

The single is from its new album, "Rebirth of New Orleans," which will be released April 12 on Basin Street Records. 

For a sample of what to expect, listen to “Do It Again.”

The new album is produced by Grammy award winner Tracey Freeman, who has worked with the likes of Harry Connick Jr. and Kermit Ruffins.

Formed by the Frazier brothers, Phil and Keith, along with Basin Street labelmate Kermit Ruffins in 1983, the Rebirth Brass Band has gone from playing on corners in the French Quarter to selling out concert halls across the world and appearing in the HBO hit “Tremé.”

The Rebirth Brass Band, www.rebirthbrassband.com, will perform May 27 at S.P.A.C.E., 1245 Chicago Ave., Evanston.

Luke Winslow King also is on the bill. The show starts at 8 p.m. and tickets are $25 in advance, $30 at the door, available at www.evanstonspace.com.
