It might only be October, but Mardi Gras is making its way up north anyway. New Orleans brass powerhouse The Soul Rebels will be playing a show at New York City’s Highline Ballroom as part of the CMJ Music Marathon. The show will take place October 19 at 12:30am. The band will be joined by special guests Maceo Parker, Moon Hooch, American Royalty and Billy Martin of Medeski, Martin & Wood. The Soul Rebels are a staple of the New Orleans music scene, and have collaborated with a variety artists like Green Day, Metallica, Kanye West, Galactic and Cee Lo Green. Their latest album, Unlock Your Mind was released in January 2012 and features guest appearances by Cyril Neville, Trombone Shorty and Meters guitarist Leo Neocentelli. In other words, these guys know how to bring the funk. Tickets to the show are on sale now.
