    The Soul Rebels

    2013 was an explosive year for THE SOUL REBELS. After riding high from a blowout CMJ Showcase at New York’s Highline Ballroom, packed shows at Austin City Limits, The Soul Rebels returned to their hometown of New Orleans to play as the house band for the nationally televised 2013 NFL Honors Awards Show hosted by Alec Baldwin on CBS Superbowl weekend. How do you follow up a show like that? As only the Soul Rebels can, with three sold out nights at New York’s Brooklyn Bowl and festival spots all the way from Australia to Indonesia . The Soul Rebels brought the party all over the world, three tours of Europe and a tour in Brazil, And the party’s just getting started.

    The Soul Rebels started with an idea shared between founding members Derrick Moss and Lumar LeBlanc – to play the music they loved on the radio in the New Orleans Brass Band tradition that they grew up on. Together with a group of young, like-minded players from all over New Orleans, they formed the Soul Rebels and set out to make their mark on the music they love.

    The band came to be when LeBlanc and Moss met as percussionists in New
    Orleans’ iconic Dejean’s Young Olympia Brass Band. The two were steeped in the fundamentals of New Orleans jazz, but inevitably, contemporary styles of music began to catch their attention. “We wanted to make our own sound without disrespecting the brass tradition,” LeBlanc recalls, “so we knew we had to break away.” They found a new direction when they spun off and formed their own band and set out to make the music they wanted to make.

    Graduates of university music programs throughout the South, the group took
    the marching band format they had learned in school and incorporated influencesfrom outside the city as well as R&B, funk and hip-hop – especially through half-sung, half rapped lyrics.

    “Most of our originals have vocals,” says LeBlanc. “You wouldn’t have done that in a traditional brass band.”

    Soon, the band’s contagious originals and updated takes on standards won them a loyal local audience but it wasn’t until an opening slot for the Neville Brothers that they got a name. Backstage before the show, it was youngest brother Cyril Neville who first called them “Soul Rebels,” and set the band in motion for all that was about to come their way.

    Since those days, the band has settled on an eight-piece lineup that can be heard on their international debut release Unlock Your Mind. The Soul Rebels 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. Their weekly show at Uptown New Orleans spot Le Bon Temps Roule? has been known to erupt with the kind of contagious, shout-along musical mayhem that the Soul Rebels bring with them wherever they go!

    On their travels, the Soul Rebels shared the stage with notable artists from many corners of the music world, including Metallica, Green Day, Maceo Parker, Galactic, Karl Denson, Slick Rick, Suzanne Vega and David A. Stewart of the Eurythmics, as well as billings with Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Arcade Fire, Alabama Shakes, Estelle, Seal, Cee Lo Green, and Dr. John among others. The Soul Rebels have been a mainstay at festivals all over the world. From the Bonnaroo main stage and the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, to Electric Forest and the Antibes Jazz Festival, to recent festival appearances at the Perth International Jazz Festival in Australia and the Java Jazz Festival in Jakarta.

    2013 saw the release of The Soul Rebels mixtape Power = Power. Premiered by Noisey, the tape includes renditions of songs by Jay Z, Drake, and Kanye West. There’s also a take on “the song of the summer”, Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky”.

    The Soul Rebels continue charting new territory today. Called “the missing link between Public Enemy and Louis Armstrong” by the Village Voice, the Soul Rebels combine top notch musicianship and songs with grooves that celebrate life in time- honored New Orleans style.

  • Flowbis

    Flowbis

    Every once in a while a band with a unique vision based on influences, growth, and perseverance steps forward into the spotlight with such poise and energy that they will not remain unnoticed for long.

     

    FLOWBIS, and L.A. based entourage of musicians who share and possess the skill and influence to successfully blend the true feel of 70′s funk/hip-hop with a vibrant, future-rock edge is the band that fully encompasses that new vision and talent.

    Reigning from Hermosa Beach, CA. FLOWBIS has performed up and down the California coast and time and time again has blown the roof off of such well-known clubs as The Troubador, The Key Club, The House Of Blues, The Roxy, and many venues in their hometowns of the South Bay Los Angeles as well as Santa Barbara and Orange County.

    FLOWBIS has made a steady impact on fans while the band and it’s individual members have shared the stage with influential acts/musicians such as Fishbone, Mike Clark (Suicidal Tendencies), Banyan and Hellride (Mike Watt, Stephen Perkins), Peter DiStefano (Porno For Pyros), Slightly Stoopid, Igloo and Hartly, Infectious Grooves and Coolio.

    With their first full-length independent release due in 2012, FLOWBIS plans to tour the U.S., Europe, and Latin America to support their work, rock the world, and give back some love to the people.

     

  • Nether Land

    Nether Land

    Nether Land's music sits atop a cloud floating in a nether world between jazz, soul, pop and electronic music.  The band is one of close knit friends, born and bred in Los Angeles, who have been making music together in various incarnations since they were teenagers.  After years apart, they re-emerged as Nether Land in 2010 with a unique, sultry sound that's been aged like a fine wine - warm, textured and full-bodied.

  • 08:45 PM - Nether Land
