On Saturday, November 7th from 6-11pm, join us at Heron Arts (7 Heron Street) in the SOMA district of San Francisco where traffic will be closed for an epic street party right there on Heron Alley.


Whether you've seen them on HBO’s Treme or at their legendary Tuesday night gigs at The Maple Leaf, the 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 festivals and stages all over the world.

Philip Frazier credits the New Orleans Musician’s Clinic, a non-profit organization that provides medical care and social services to musicians based in Nola, for saving his life after Hurricane Katrina. A portion of all sales will be donated to the Musicians Clinic in support of their endless efforts and contributions to musicians in New Orleans.

In tandem with this unique musical presentation, Heron Arts continues on its mission to promote and exhibit of compelling contemporary art. Arrive early to view a curated group show presented in partnership with New Orleans-based Red Truck Gallery. The exhibition includes important works from Brian Dettmer, Jim Bachor, Matthew Cox, Ellen Greene, Kathy Halper, Krista Hoefle, Jeremiah Lee, Tom McDonald, Darrel Morris, Chris Roberts-Antieau, Bryan Cunningham, Adam Wallacavage, Tom Haney, and Frank Relle. These artists all hold New Orleans as an important place in their artistic development. The work will remain on display through the evening performance.

But that's not all! SF's New Orleans-inspired restaurant The Boxing Room will share their famous gumbo and other samples of New Orleans cuisine. Paired with the food will be New Orleans Chicory coffee and libations that will be sure to ease your pangs for the Crescent City.

San Francisco and New Orleans share many intrinsic qualities and are two cities that have historically held the arts high on their cultural lists. Both cities endured tragic natural disasters within 100 years of each other, and as a result both value the importance of community. Heron Arts brings the spirit of New Orleans to San Francisco through music, art, food and drink, with hopes of tying these cities closer together while supporting the musicians, artists, and makers of both.
