If jazz music is the heart of New Orleans, then the Soul Rebels’ music is the blood that pumps through the city’s veins.
The Soul Rebels Brass Band embraces the rich jazz traditions of their homeland but add life-affirming vocals and hip shaking grooves aplenty. Couple those elements to funk, ska and hip-hop, with harmony vocals and more catchy horn lines and solos than you can shake a stick at, and you have a goodtime party band like no other with an infectious energy that’s impossible to resist. Having sold out the Queen Elizabeth Hall at last year’s London Jazz Festival and delivered a storming set on Later With Jools Holland, this is your chance to catch these rising New Orleans superstars in one of London’s funkiest small venues.
