A Grammy award-winning band that is considered a New Orleans institution is coming to Fayetteville this spring.

Rebirth Brass Band, a group that has been playing the streets of the French Quarter to festivals and stages all over the world since the early 80s, is set to perform at George’s Majestic Lounge on Sunday, April 23.

The show is sponsored by Maxine’s Tap Room, who wanted to bring the band to town, but didn’t quite have enough room to showcase the talents of the group.

“Rebirth Brass Band is such a legacy band in New Orleans, that when they hit us up to play at Maxines, which they are way too big to do (We literally couldn’t got their band at that bar!), we immediately reached out to George’s Majestic to see if we could partner on the show,” said Hannah Withers of Maxine’s Tap Room.

The performance will be the band’s first in Northwest Arkansas for the band that Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea described as “Unbelievable,” “Hard as Hell,” and “Free as a ray of light.” “There is not a band on earth that is better,” he said.

In addition to being a fixture in New Orleans over the years, the band has also appeared in the HBO drama Treme, CBS’s NCIS: New Orleans, and other TV and film projects.

The show at George’s will kick off at around 8 p.m. After the band performs, an after party featuring members of the band will move over to Maxine’s.

“We love the idea of the two oldest venues in Fayetteville partnering up to bring brilliant live music to our downtown, and hope we get more chances to do this in the future,” Withers said.

Tickets to the show are $25. A 4-pack bundle of tickets is also available at a discounted rate of $85.
