The Soul Rebels Brass Band

Saturday, June 22, 2013
Tipitina’s Uptown, New Orleans, LA

I had an INCREDIBLE first time in New Orleans. My dear friend Chelsea was a fabulous host, and her awesome friends were so welcoming and took great care of me. Chelsea knew I’d want to see some live music, so she got us tickets to see Soul Rebels on Saturday night. We saw a lot of street performers in the French Quarter and over at The Spotted Cat on Frenchmen Street, too. I bought Yes Ma’am’s album in the Quarter, and we ran into them again at The Spotted Cat a couple of days later. NOLA is a small world.

I had a blast on the Saturday of the show. I am sure we went to Hansen’s on Tchoupitoulas for a snoball (one of many visits there) and had a delicious dinner at Alex’s made by his lovely housemates. Our TFA and Australian friends arrived, and the whole gang of us made it over to Tipitina’s for the show.

DJ Captain Charles kicked things off and by the time our gaggle of friends had taken over front row center, The Soul Rebels hit the stage. They were great—upbeat and fun—with a funk/hip hop/jazz vibe, and a killer horn section that stole the show. We danced all night long and stayed until the show was over and the room had cleared out.

I could mention the Super Moon and all of the chaos that happened that night, but instead I’ll just say that it was a ridiculous night that we all survived.

Thanks, NOLA and NOLA friends! I loved (almost) every minute (see above)! More pretty NOLA pics below.
