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.
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.
Riding high through 2016 after recently touring Europe, Australia, China and Japan, all whilst selling out shows, collaborating live with artists spanning from Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Marilyn Manson, Joey Bada$$, Robert Glasper, Kool & The Gang, Rakim, Slick Rick, Black Thought of The Roots, Pharoahe Monch, opening for Bruno Mars… and to top it all off they’re currently touring with Lauryn Hill.
