This evening beginning at 6pm, a tribute to Rebirth Brass Band is taking place at LeMann Park, Lafitte St at N. Claiborne Ave. This “Under the Bridge” brass band blowout is part of the Tremé 200 Festival and features the Hot 8, Dirty Dozen, Brass-A-Holics, The Original Pinettes, Baby Boyz and of course Rebirth Brass Band.

The tribute is just one of many events (schedule here) happening throughout the weekend to celebrate the bicentennial of Faubourg Tremé, the oldest African American neighborhood in the United States.
