Blue Note Jazz Club New York presents a rare underplay performance featuring eight-piece brass sensation The Soul Rebels, for a late night set on Saturday, July 21st at 12:30am EST. The intimate show will also welcome very special guests and hip hop icons Talib Kweli, GZA of famed group the Wu Tang Clan, and jazz trumpet star Keyon Harrold. The performance will follow The Soul Rebels’ set at the Louis Armstrong Wonderful World Festival in Queens, NY earlier that day, where they will take the stage alongside hip hop heavyweight Action Bronson.
The Soul Rebels are riding high in 2018, receiving national attention with a performance on NPR’s Tiny Desk series, a debut late night TV appearance on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, a headlining set at the global TED Conference, and an appearance and official soundtrack feature for Universal Pictures’ hit comedy Girls Trip. The band continues to expand its international reach touring four continents including Europe, Australia, China and Japan. Their explosive stage presence has led to live collaborations with the likes of: Nas, G-Eazy, Portugal. The Man, Robert Glasper, Pretty Lights, DMX, Curren$y, Joey Bada$$, Talib Kweli, GZA, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Mobb Deep, Raekwon, Metallica, and Marilyn Manson among many others, and opening for Lauryn Hill.
The Soul Rebels started with an idea – to expand upon the pop music they loved on the radio and the New Orleans brass tradition they grew up on. They took that tradition and blended funk and soul with elements of hip hop, jazz and rock all within a brass band context. The band has built a career around an eclectic live show that harnesses the power of horns and drums in a deep pocket funk party-like atmosphere. The Soul Rebels continue to chart new territory as they feature in major films, tour globally, and combine topnotch musicianship with songs that celebrate dancing, life, funk and soul.
