Renowned brass ensemble THE SOUL REBELS, are back with their first single “Good Time” featuring NOLA’s bounce icon Big Freedia. Just in time for the BBQs and fun in the sun, the feel-good boisterous single gives an up-tempo catchy Summer party-like vibe. The Soul Rebels share their excitement with Billboard:
“Our new album reflects The Soul Rebels’ sound and style, and challenges and expands upon the perception of a New Orleans brass band. We are breaking the stylistic and artistic boundaries of what it means to be a brass group from New Orleans.”
~ Julian Gosin of The Soul Rebels
