About The Soul Rebels:
Eight piece brass ensemble The Soul Rebels are riding high in 2016 after recently touring four continents including Europe and Australia, debuting in China and Japan, selling out shows across America and collaborating live with artists spanning Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Marilyn Manson, Joey Bada$$, Talib Kweli, Slick Rick, Big Freedia, Robert Glasper, Lettuce, Vulfpeck, Umphrey’s McGee, Kool & The Gang, Rakim, The String Cheese Incident, Black Thought of The Roots, Pharoahe Monch and opening for Bruno Mars.
The Soul Rebels began their legacy of collaborating with a diverse range of artists and bands in 2011, when Metallica commissioned The Rebels to perform with Metallica for a week-long 30th Anniversary run of shows at The Fillmore in San Francisco.
The Soul Rebels first 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. The band has settled on an eight-piece lineup and have built a career around an eclectic live show that harnesses the power of horns and drums in the party like atmosphere of a dance club. When not touring, The Soul Rebels’ weekly show at New Orleans’ Le Bon Temps Roulé is known to erupt with the kind of contagious, shout-along musical mayhem that The Rebels bring with them wherever they perform.
The band continues to chart new territory as they combine topnotch musicianship and songs with grooves that celebrate dancing, life, funk and soul.
