Soul Rebels blast Le Bon Temps Roule

New Orleans hip-hop and horn ensemble Soul Rebels, which play Tropical Heatwave in Ybor City May 17, hosted a sold-out showdown at Le Bon Temps Roule in New Orleans' Uptown neighborhood Thursday. More than 300 people crammed the venue to shake it as the 8-piece delivered a boisterous meld of jazz, rap and funk. The band performs today at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, which I'm on my way to cover. The headliner is Stevie Wonder and I'm stoked.

The Soul Rebels gather around me outside Le Bon Temps Roule Thursday to be interviewed for a future Creative Loafing feature story.
