Re­birth Brass Band, Della Mae at Rev­elry Room

Chattanooga Times Free Press - ChattanoogaNow - - MUSIC - STAFF RE­PORT

Grammy- nom­i­nated Della Mae has estab­lished a rep­u­ta­tion as a hard-tour­ing live act, build­ing a fan base while rack­ing up mas­sive crit­i­cal ac­claim.

The quin­tet draws from a bot­tom­less well of roots in­flu­ences to cre­ate orig­i­nal mu­sic that con­veys their mu­si­cal vi­sion with a con­tem­po­rary rel­e­vance that places them along­side such roots-con­scious acts as The Avett Brothers, Punch Brothers, The Lu­m­i­neers and Shov­els & Rope.

Formed in 2009 in Bos­ton, Della Mae is one of the first mod­ern all- women blue­grass bands. Kim­ber Ludiker on fid­dle, Celia Wood­smith on vo­cals and gui­tar, Zoe Guigueno on bass, Jenni Lyn Gard­ner on man­dolin, and Court­ney Hart­man on gui­tar, vo­cals, and banjo were ac­com­plished mu­si­cians prior to form­ing the band. In­di­vid­u­ally, they have played blue- grass, folk, rock and coun­try, and have backed up Wil­lie Nel­son, Taj Ma­hal, Leon Rus­sell, Del McCoury Band and nu­mer­ous oth­ers.

Della Mae stops in Rev­elry Room on Satur­day night, Feb. 3, where au­di­ences can hear for them­selves why they were named IBMA’s Emerg­ing Artists of the Year in 2013.

They earned a 2014 Grammy nom­i­na­tion for t heir de­but al­bum on Rounder Records, and were named among Rolling Stone’s “10 bands to watch for in 2015.” They have since trav­eled with the U.S. State Depart­ment to more than 18 coun­tries spread­ing peace and un­der­stand­ing through mu­sic.

On Fri­day, Feb. 2, Grammy-win­ning Re­birth Brass Band re­turns to Rev­elry for a night of par­ty­ing New Or­leans-style.

Whether seen on HBO’s “Treme” or at their leg­endary Tues­day night gig in The Maple Leaf, 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, Re­birth created its sig­na­ture sound with the in­clu­sion of funk and hip-hop.

Show­time for ei­ther per­for­mance is 9 p.m. For more in­for­ma­tion: 423-805-3247.
