The Soul Rebels w/ Ivan Neville

Dubbed “the missing link between Public Enemy and Louis Armstrong” by the Village Voice, The Soul Rebels got their name from Cyril Neville—they were opening for him at Tipitina’s and lacked a name at the time. The eight-piece New Orleans-based contemporary brass band got its start when founding percussionists Derrick Moss and Lumar LeBlanc wanted to play a wider range of music in the context of brass and marching bands, incorporating elements of soul, jazz, hip-hop, rock, and pop into their version of the venerable tradition. They’ve gone on to collaborate with artists from multiple genres, from local luminaries Trombone Shorty and Branford Marsalis to Katy Perry, Rakim, Nas, Metallica, Green Day, and the String Cheese Incident.
