From the original Facebook Event:
Join us during 46th Annual Neptune Festival Boardwalk Weekend for a FREE CONCERT featuring Grammy Award Winning Rebirth Brass Band! The concert will take place Saturday, September 28th at 5:00pm in 24th Street Park.
Whether seen on HBO's Treme or at their legendary Tuesday night gig at The Maple Leaf, Grammy-winning Rebirth Brass Band is a true New Orleans institution. Formed in 1983 by the Frazier brothers, the band has evolved from playing the streets of the French Quarter to playing festivals and stages all over the world. While committed to upholding the tradition of brass bands, they have also extended themselves into the realms of funk and hip-hop to create their signature sound. "Rebirth can be precise whenever it wants to," says The New York Times, "but it's more like a party than a machine. It's a working model of the New Orleans musical ethos: as long as everybody knows what they're doing, anyone can cut loose." In the wake of the sometimes-stringent competition among New Orleans brass bands, Rebirth is the undisputed leader of the pack, and they show no signs of slowing down.
Hundreds of thousands of people celebrate the beach life each year at Neptune Festival Boardwalk Weekend! Daily concerts at 3 festival stages feature local, regional, and national acts. Over 250 artists will set up shop on the boardwalk, along with tasty food options!
Take a walk through the International Sandsculpting Championship tent, where you will find 22 incredible works of art created by 32 of the world's most talented sculptors!
Other events taking place during the weekend include:
Neptune's 8k Race
Neptune's Volleyball Tournament
Neptune's Atlantic Regatta
Grand Parade, Youth Art Show, Hometown Heroes Breakfast and more!
More than 35 local, regional, and national acts will perform during the weekend. All concerts are free and open to the public. Headliners will be announced soon. Stay tuned!
