Soul Rebels 25th July 2012
Hailing from New Orleans, the Soul Rebels’ jazz-flecked music is the blood that pumps through that city’s body coupled to funk, ska, hip-hop, with harmony vocals and more catchy horn lines and solos than you can shake a stick at.
“The most adventurous of all the New Orleans brass bands…The Soul Rebels are the missing link between Louis Armstrong and Public Enemy.” Village Voice
“Utterly uninhibited hip-hop hybrid, not to be missed” Rolling Stone Magazine
Following their jaw-dropping concert at Band on the Wall last year, Soul Rebels have gone from strength to strength. They now receive massive attention wherever they paly their intoxicating mix of traditional New Orleans jazz brass flecked and rippled with hip hop and funks flavours.
If jazz music is the heart of New Orleans, then the Soul Rebels’ music is the blood that pumps through the city’s body. The Soul Rebel embrace the rich jazz traditions of their homeland but add life-affirming vocals and hip shaking grooves aplenty. Couple those elements to funk, ska, hip-hop, with harmony vocals and more catchy horn lines and solos than you can shake a stick at.
