“The Soul Rebels, New Orleans’ finest brass ensemble…” – VICE

“The Soul Rebels are the missing link between Public Enemy and Louis Armstrong.” – VILLAGE VOICE



THE SOUL REBELS are riding high into 2016 after recently touring four continents including Europe, Australia, debuting in China and Japan, selling out shows,collaborating live with artists spanning from Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Marilyn Manson, Joey Bada$$, Big Freedia, Lettuce, Umphrey’s McGee, Robert Glasper, Kool & The Gang, Rakim, Slick Rick, The String Cheese Incident, Black Thought of The Roots, Pharoahe Monch and opening for Bruno Mars.

The Soul Rebels start off the year strong with a tour featuring special guest Talib Kweli, complimented by a three night residency at New York’s Brooklyn Bowl featuring special guests Big Freedia, Talib Kweli and other iconic artists.



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.

The Soul Rebels continue to chart new territory as they combine topnotch musicianship and songs with grooves that celebrate dancing, life, funk and soul.





“New Orleans’ top-shelf brass ensemble The Soul Rebels…wind-wielding wizardry of New Orleans’ finest.” – OKAYPLAYER

“Brace yourselves folks, these men are quickly solidifying themselves amongst NOLA’s proud big brass elite… and seem intent to sublimate the homogenoustones of the contemporary urban music landscape with the lush instrumentation of our culture’s root.” – OKAYPLAYER

“The Soul Rebels are rebelling against one, albeit detestable thing: starchy paint-by- numbers music.” – VIBE
