CEG & Nolafunk Presents
Rebirth Brass Band with special guest Miss Mojo
Whether seen on HBO’s Treme or at their legendary Tuesday night gig at The Maple Leaf, Grammy-winning Rebirth Brass Band is a true New Orleans institution. Formed in 1983 by the Frazier brothers, the band has evolved from playing the streets of the French Quarter to playing festivals and stages all over the world. While committed to upholding the tradition of brass bands, they’ve also extended themselves into the realms of funk and hip-hop to create their signature sound. “Rebirth can be precise whenever it wants to,” says The New York Times, “but it’s more like a party than a machine. It’s a working model of the New Orleans musical ethos: as long as everybody knows what they’re doing, anyone can cut loose.” In the wake of the sometimes- stringent competition amongst New Orleans brass bands, Rebirth is the undisputed leader of the pack, and they show no signs of slowing down.
Miss Mojo is a soul-pop band based in New Orleans, LA that strives to move audiences through its powerful songwriting and high-energy live performances. The band's creative strength draws from contemporary neo-soul and New Orleans' extensive funk tradition, producing original music where soul and pop flawlessly coexist. Years of playing in New Orleans' vibrant party scene simultaneously helped sculpt Miss Mojo's memorable performance style, which excites audiences and celebrates the band members' passion for making music together. With two strong frontwomen serving as the voice of the band, Miss Mojo also uses its platform to highlight the power of women in music.
Miss Mojo released its debut EP, Up & Personal, in January 2017. The group is slated to release its first full length album, Love in Time, in June 2018. Having shared the stage with some of New Orleans' most prolific artists, such as Rebirth Brass Band, Big Sam's Funky Nation, Dumpstaphunk, and many more, Miss Mojo now hopes to bring its energy and music to venues and audiences across the country.
