There will never be a time when I will tire of hearing some great music that’s steeped in New Orleans tradition, so I was excited for Rebirth Brass Band to perform at The Kelsey Theater which is so close to my home!

So Much Talent On This Stage

I did not know what to expect from Victor Wooten and Sinbad‘s Fun ‘N Funk Xplosion Tour’s stop at the Amaturo Theatre at the Broward Center for the Arts, but at the least I knew I would experience an evening of great music.

People with whom I spoke before the show started did not know John and I told them they were in for a treat!
