Do Whatcha Wanna - Rebirth Brass Band

The Rebirth Brass Band is New Orleans' premier brass band, and this song is my favorite of theirs. If you can look past the poor audio and video quality of the youtube clip, you'll find what makes them great:
1) Organized Chaos (my wife's term for their musical style)
2) Unbridled energy
3) An uncanny ability to unite people. (Seriously, it doesn't matter what your race/creed/sex/religion . . . a Rebirth concert is for you, and you will be surrouned by friends.)

And for those of you keeping score at home, I believe it is Jackie Gleason at the end of the video on this post.
