New Orleans' Rebirth Brass Band (pictured) is returning to St. Louis for a concert at 9:30 p.m. Saturday, July 23 at Bandwagon Hall, 2151 Lemay Ferry Rd. in south county.

While they're in town, RBB also will appear as guest performers with the Compton Heights Concert Band at two free outdoor concerts, on Sunday, July 24 at Francis Park and Monday, July 25 at Tower Grove Park.

The RBB last played in St. Louis in October 2010 at The Gramophone. They've just completed “A Night in Treme," a short tour with several other New Orleans acts sponsored by HBO to help promote the TV series Treme.

On this trip to St. Louis, they'll be playing a venue that is largely unfamiliar to local music fans. Online directories list Bandwagon Hall as a bingo hall, and photos show what appears to be a former furniture store located in a strip mall. The hall has hosted at least one previous music event, a Johnny Cash tribute show back in February that also was promoted by the Compton Heights Concert Band.

Tickets for Rebirth Brass Band at Bandwagon Hall are $20 each, and can be purchased from Brown Paper Tickets by calling 1-800-838-3006 or online.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
