Tyrus Chapman is best known for his work with Rebirth Brass Band in the 1990s and early 2000s. Tyrus played trombone in the John McDonogh High School band with Derrick Tabb before they joined Rebirth. An accomplished trombonist, Tyrus also incorporated his songwriting and singing abilities into the band’s albums We Come to Party (1997) and Hot Venom (2001). Since departing from Rebirth, Tyrus has played most regularly with the Hot 8. He has also had cameo appearances on HBO’s Treme, played on the series soundtrack, and worked with actor Wendell Pierce to teach him trombone.

  2. Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess
    I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any recommendations for inexperienced blog
    writers? I’d really appreciate it.
