Soul Rebels

Rap/Hip Hop, Jazz
The Soul Rebels is a New Orleans-based brass band that formed when Lumar LeBlanc and Derrick Moss, originally members of New Orleans' iconic Dejean's Young Olympia Brass Band, decided they wanted to play the new, exciting music they were hearing on the radio while respecting the tradition they loved. They found a stylistic middle ground when they formed a band of young, like-minded local players from all over New Orleans. Graduates of university music programs throughout the South, the band took the marching band format they had learned in school and incorporated influences from outside the city and came up with a melding of traditions which is especially on display in their half-sung, half-rapped lyrics. "Most of our originals have vocals," says LeBlanc. "You wouldn't have done that in a traditional brass band." No, but this eight-piece band is proving they're on to something with their ecletic, electric live shows.
