About the Event
The extensive high energy repertoire is drawn from artists such as:
Fats Domino, Professor Longhair, The Meters, Trombone Shorty, The Dirty Dozen, Bonerama, Dr John,
Rebirth Brass Band, Youngblood Brass Band, Jon Cleary, The Soul Rebels, Mardis Gras Indians, Stanton Moore……...
This covers grooves and harmonies from Gospel hymns, New Orleans Traditional Mardi Gras music, Jazz,
Rock, Latin, Funk and Blues.
The bands outstanding versatility can work with any crowd as the
flexible line up performs as either a roving, or static band. We can
cover any event or occasion.
The roving aspect of the bands’ show is perfect for outdoor events such as
festivals, carnivals, race days, street marches and for capturing a crowd
outside a venue. Rehab are just as comfortable putting on a show on stage.
The Rehab Brass Band is made up of respected jazz musicians based in
the Hunter Valley region of NSW.
