Direct from New Orleans, brass band The Soul Rebels play a free show at the beautiful Hollywood ArtsPark!
Bring a chair or a blanket to enjoy this free show in the beautiful ArtsPark in downtown Hollywood!
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 all within a brass band context. The band has built a career around an eclectic live show that harnesses the power of horns and drums in a deep pocket funk party-like atmosphere. The Soul Rebels continue to chart new territory as they feature in major films, tour globally, and combine topnotch musicianship with songs that celebrate dancing, life, funk and soul.
The Soul Rebels have impressed viewers with an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, been featured on NPR’s Tiny Desk series, and headlined the global TED Conference. They have toured supporting The Wu Tang Clan, The Rolling Stones, Lauryn Hill and Nile Rogers. On their own worldwide tours, they have featured special guests and collaborators galore – the likes of Katy Perry, Nas, G-Eazy, DMX, Robin Thicke, Macy Gray, Portugal. The Man, Robert Glasper, Cimafunk, Big Freedia, Pretty Lights, Curren$y, Joey Bada$$, Talib Kweli, GZA, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Raekwon, Metallica, and Marilyn Manson among many others.
As the music of New Orleans fills the Hollywood ArtsPark, Soul Rebels’ show will open with a set by Erica Falls, the Big Easy’s new queen of Neo-Soul.
This show is produced by The Rhythm Foundation for the City of Hollywood.
