Rebirth Brass Band & Subharmonic Details

Rebirth Brass Band & Subharmonic
The Jazz Mafia’s Subharmonic

Simply put, The Rebirth Brass Band is a New Orleans institution. Formed in 1983 by the now infamous Frazier brothers, the band has evolved from playing the streets of the French Quarter to playing festivals and stages all over the world.

Rebirth is committed to upholding the tradition of brass bands while at the same time incorporating modern music into their show. Their signature brand of brass funk has won over several generations of music lovers, and in a post-Katrina world, their name and music have become the soundtrack to their musically rich hometown.

In the wake of the sometimes-stringent competition amongst brass bands, Rebirth is the undisputed leader of the pack, and they show no signs of slowing down.

The Jazz Mafia’s Subharmonic
Adam Theis is the Jazz Mafia guy, always a little bit different. Watch him on YouTube wailing on his trombone — while wake surfing on Lake Sonoma. Or directing his band Supertaster, while backing Stevie Wonder in a packed San Francisco lounge. And then marshaling his troops onstage at the Palace of Fine Arts Theatre: 55 rappers, singers and instrumentalists, performing one of his hip-hop symphonies.

A one-man music industry in the Bay Area for 15 years, Theis — who performs Saturday night at the San Jose Jazz Festival with Subharmonic, his new brass-led groove band — is a renegade with a traditional work ethic. Founder of the Jazz Mafia consortium — dozens of players, on call for his various bands — he is a genre-blurrer, smartly blending jazz essentials with hip-hop, dub, Mexican polkas, whatever, while attracting a new, and young audience.
