About The Soul Rebels:
The Soul Rebels 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. Both New Orleans natives, the pair was steeped in the fundamentals of New Orleans jazz, but inevitably, contemporary styles of music began to seep into their psyches. New sounds were all around and they found them as exciting as the horn‐combo style featured in jazz funerals since the turn of the Twentieth Century.
Soon, The Soul Rebels’ contagious originals and updated takes on standards won them a loyal local audience. They began rocking some of New Orleans’ most beloved live music venues. A chance gig opening for the Neville Brothers got them a real start—and an official name. It was youngest brother Cyril Neville who first called them “Soul Rebels,” a good name for a band that strived to incite positive change in its treasured musical heritage.
Since those days, the band has settled on an eight‐piece lineup, building 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 Roulé has been known to descend into a sweaty shout‐along as the band mixes up songs from its five studio albums with hits by Jay‐Z and OutKast. While touring the U.S., The Soul Rebels have collaborated or shared the stage with notable artists from many corners of the rock, pop and jazz worlds, including Metallica, Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Cee Lo Green, Arcade Fire, The Roots, Bootsy Collins, Seal, Robert Plant & Jimmy Page, Counting Crows, Green Day, Drive By Truckers, James Brown, Roy Hargrove, Allen Toussaint, Galactic, Slick Rick, Chuck Brown, Terence Blanchard, The Gap Band, Better than Ezra and many more. Averaging around 250 shows per year, the Soul Rebels have brought the party to stages as far away as South Africa and Europe, playing some of the world’s best‐known music events, including, Bonnaroo, Electric Forest, Umbria Jazz Fest, Antibes Jazz Festival, Montreal Jazz festival, the Wanee Festival and, of course, the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.

Special Notes on Dogs and Chairs:
For the safety and enjoyment of all our guests, we kindly remind you that dogs are no longer allowed in the concert venue.
Due to the steepness of our new concert venue, guests may bring their own chair to our concerts provided that the chair height is 9" or less. “Low back” chairs are therefore allowed, but camping chairs and chairs with sharp legs are not allowed. There are no exceptions to this rule and guests bringing chairs that do not meet this requirement will be asked to take them back to their vehicles. Chairs meeting the height requirements are available for purchase at Canyon Mountain Sports.
