THE GRAMMY AWARD WINNING- REBIRTH BRASS BAND

AUGUST 4TH 6PM-8PM // DURHAM CENTRAL PARK

It’s a working model of the New Orleans musical ethos: as long as everybody knows what they’re doing, anyone can cut loose.” You're not going to want to miss this signature band that will take you back to the depths of Louisiana.
