This is going to be a party.
The legendary Rebirth Brass Band performs at the Kessler Theater at 8 p.m. Friday, and at $20 per ticket, it is amazing the show is not sold out yet.
This is New Orleans-based super star trumpet player Kermit Ruffins’ original band. And they are, as they say in hip-hop, all the way live.
Here’s the Kessler’s description:
