The Rebirth finally makes its way down with a live performance at the historic Leimert Park this Saturday April 28th. 2 sets starting at 9pm this gives an opportunity for friends to get their Rebirth on if the previous shows have been out of driving range. Looking forward to finally doing a show in this part of southern cali.

The Rebirth has been known over the years to do a cover or two i.e. “Evil Vibrations” to name just one. SECRET LIFE OF PLANETS is a side project featuring members of the Rebirth whom will be performing live many of the artists and music that has influenced the Rebirth’s sound over the years. PLEASURE, SIDE EFFECT, BERNARD WRIGHT, A TRIBE CALLED QUEST, RAMP to name a few of the gems that will be featured on this night. Part of our ritual and reason to play these songs is often we discover so many nuances on how these classics were created to begin with by listening and extracting the fine details of the recordings, song structure, performances and lyrical content. We then realize why these songs have become classics in our universe.

A few months ago we decided it would be fun to just do a gig where we could perform songs we don’t get a chance to do in our sets often and work out some new songs live. After a full house for two sets we’ve been asked to return to do another special intimate performance at Mambo’s. This time we plan on inviting some friends down to stretch out with us a bit and allow the show to grow organically. Should go down as another memorable night.

The Rebirth performs live Benefit for Darfur, Saturday July 12th
So we are just a few days away from an event very close to our hearts. As we stated earlier, we have been blessed to have performed on some very special shows this year and this just may be one of the most important. Hope you will join us…..
“Life Through Music” Save Darfur Benefit Concert. The purpose: To raise funds to send to the Darfur refugee camps in the Sudan of Africa, where more than 300,000 innocent men, women and children have been killed since 2003, and more than 2 million have been misplaced from their homes due to violence, and a lack of food and clean water.
There is a quote on myspace.com/darfurnow stating, “Even the smallest act makes a difference” and we believe that a series of these acts can together conquer impossible odds. As Don Cheadle and George Clooney use their notoriety to create action or Luis Moreno-Ocampo, the chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, creates action by gathering evidence against the Sudanese government, we the artist, create action by showing our strength in solidarity and music.
Action comes in many forms, but they all help turn the wheels of change and you, the audience, create action by contributing life energy that comes in a form of an admission to an incredible event.

Members of the Rebirth back-up NYC’s Maya Azucena for LA/OC Shows-RECAP
We would like to thank everyone who came together to make Maya Azucena’s mini tour of southern Cal a successful one. “This is the first time I felt that I properly played LA/OC and found my audience” states Maya. Well this couldn’t have happened without the fans showing up with welcoming arms.
It started with a few set backs, with the primary incident of Loslito being injured on a job site a few days before and unable to MD and perform with the group. Loslito was primarily on guitar so Andrew Saravia of Slang came in one days notice to learn 14 songs. Rehearsal was rough because the drummer had become unavailable as well, so “Big” Bert Baker got the call, performing on the fly on the first show the following night. Needless to say it was a true test of adaptation and we commend and appreciate Maya for keeping a positive attitude and spirit despite all the initial set backs.
Her tour of LA started Wednesday night for a 3 song performance at Strictly Social, a close-out freestyle at The Root Down on Thursday, continued by Soul Sessions on Friday, the Continental Room (Fullerton) Saturday and finally The Mint on Monday, whew! Adaptation was the operative word for these events so Maya just took what the space and energy gave her and she gave it right back ten fold. Daniel Seef stated “She is right up there with Sy Smith as far as directing a band, talent, professionalism and being able to shine in any circumstance.”
It was good for the band to connect with other musicians and a synergetic relationship was established for The Rebirth to keep supporting Maya Azucena as she keeps building her name and presence out here on the west coast. If you were unable to check out the shows this time around, here are some images taken by default photographer, Loslito, for your viewing pleasure. ☺
Special thanks goes to the Norman (Strictly Social), Jay and Chad (Soul Sessions, Bobby Soul (Continental Room, Casey Phillips (The Mint) for taking a chance on booking Maya without ever hearing a note.
