They now are now coming to Knoxville to put on a show for all of us for only $5! The Soul Rebels started when founding members Derrick Moss and Lumar LeBlanc came together to play the music they loved on the radio in the New Orleans Brass Band tradition that they grew up on. The band came to be when LeBlanc and Moss met as percussionists in New Orleans’ iconic Dejean’s Young Olympia Brass Band. The two were steeped in the fundamentals of New Orleans jazz, but eventually contemporary styles of music caught their ears.The Soul Rebels won New Orleans’ Big Easy award in 2010, 2008 and in 1999 as well as nominations in 2012, 2011 and in 2009. The have been nominated for Best Of The Beat: Off Beat Awards in 2011, 2010, 2009 and in 2008.In 2012, The Soul Rebels were nominated for four 2012 Best Of The Beat Awards; Best Artist Of The Year, Best Album Of The Year, Best Brass Band Of The Year and Best Brass Band Album Of The Year.
