The Soul Rebels
The Soul Rebels
Called “New Orleans' finest brass ensemble” by VICE and "Nola's proud big brass elite" by OkayPlayer, THE SOUL REBELS hoist brass into the mainstream.

2013 was an explosive year for The Soul Rebels. After riding high from a blowout CMJ Showcase at New York’s Highline Ballroom, packed shows at Bonnaroo, Electric Forest and Austin City Limits, The Soul Rebels returned to their hometown of New Orleans to play as the house band for the nationally televised 2013 NFL Honors Awards Show hosted by Alec Baldwin on CBS Superbowl weekend. How do you follow up a show like that? The only way The Soul Rebels can, with three sold out nights at New York’s famous BROOKLYN BOWL and festival spots all the way from Australia to Indonesia. The Rebels brought the thunder all over the world, three tours of Europe and two tours in Brazil. And the party is just getting started.

The Soul Rebels have evolved into collaborating with artists including Metallica, Green Day, Maceo Parker, Galactic, Rick Ross, Trombone Shorty, Big Freedia,The String Cheese Incident, Slick Rick, Styles P of The Lox, Prodigy of Mobb Deep, Eric Krasno, Karl Denson, John Medeski, Suzanne Vega and David A. Stewart of the Eurythmics,among others as well as being billed on shows with Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Alabama Shakes, Estelle, Cee Lo Green, Arcade Fire, Ice Cube, Shaggy and George Clinton among others.

The Soul Rebels can be heard on their international debut release Unlock Your Mind (2012), featuring Trombone Shorty among others.2013 saw the release of The Soul Rebels award winning mixtape, 'Power = Power'. Premiered by VICE, the tape includes renditions of songs by Jay Z, Drake, Nicki Manaj and Kanye West as well as the song of the summer”, Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” featuring bounce queen Big Freedia.

And 2014 is looking even bigger for The Soul Rebels...
American Royalty
American Royalty
American Royalty is a psych-pop three piece that constructs an unlikely yet glowingly functional blend of dark psychedelic rock and poignant electronica. This creative soundscape is topped off by the two vocal leads of Marc Gilfry and Billy Scher, whose pipes both seem to fall somewhere in the realm of where blues and soul meet back on the other side.

The hard working trio spent most of 2012 on the road, from SXSW to CMJ, resting in LA only for a month to play a residency at The Echo and record their new EP (coming February 2013). Their unique and seasoned approach to the stage is one of the reasons why KCRW highlighted them as one of the “LA bands to watch at CMJ 2012”, and earned them support slots for a wide roster of talent including Metronomy, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Digitalism, The Presets, Ladyhawke, Hanni El Khatib and more.

Having recently relocated from Los Angeles to Brooklyn at the start of 2013, this will not only be their first play of the year, but also their first play as New Yorkers.
