The Soul Rebels are one of my all time personal favorites. So much so that every year I manage to wake everyone up from their post-Thanksgiving naps and drag them out to jam the night away at Soul Rebel’s annual Thanksgiving show at Le Bon Temps Roule. But Soul Rebels melding of brass, R&B, funk and other sounds isn’t just a personal weakness, it is the perfect recipe for fun. More than a few out-of-town friends count a Soul Rebels show as the highlight of their trips to NOLA, which is a pretty amazing honor. You can bet I’ll be at the Congo Square Stage when Soul Rebels go on at 5:20 on Saturday, April 28, you should be too.
