Rebirth Brass Band

Band nerds? Ha! Not in New Orleans, where picking up a horn is every bit as cool as catching a touchdown pass. If jazz evangelists were serious about spreading their goodness to the youth of America, they'd be well served to capture hearts and ears with the Big Easy's party-animal, stylistic gumbo version than to take the more highfalutin' paths trod by musicians-in-residence and such. Ain't no party like a Rebirth party 'cause a Rebirth party don't stop, and considering the boys are playing back-to-back gigs on Ballard Avenue—as close to a Bourbon Street as Seattle's got—this weekend, it won't. With Tubaluba. MIKE SEELY
