The Highline Ballroom, Live For Live Music, My Free Concert, and NolaFunk.com present an epic CMJ party with undisputed kings of New Orleans brass, The Soul Rebels, collaborating alongside a special group of handpicked musicians who promise to turn this showcase into the must see event of the week. The late night performance will take place on Friday, Oct. 19 at 12:30am.

Maceo Parker - sax legend from James Brown's band - will blow his horn as Moon Hooch tears the house down with their break beat grooves. Billy Martin of Medeski, Martin & Wood will rock the drums and American Royalty will bring the thunder. Their sound is a seamless blend of Mardi Gras funk, soul, R&B and pop. To complete the evening, Highline Ballroom’s kitchen and barstaff are preparing a customized, soulful menu with food and drink specials straight out of New Orleans. Look out for all sorts of funky giveaways and contests offered by the Highline Ballroom and the great folks at LiveForMusic.com and MyFreeConcert.com.

The Soul Rebels grew from their traditional New Orleans brass style out of the desire to play the music they heard on the radio, but with respect to the New Orleans brass band tradition. The band has gone from a local New Orleans favorite to live collaborations with Metallica, Green Day, Galactic, Trombone Shorty, Slick Rick and shows with Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Seal, Cee Lo Green and Estelle.

In January of 2012, the band released its first international album, Unlock Your Mind, on Rounder Records. This new song-driven studio effort includes guest appearances by Cyril Neville, Trombone Shorty and Meters guitarist Leo Nocentelli. Since Hurricane Katrina, The Soul Rebels have been more successful than ever serving as an international ambassador of the New Orleans sound represented its hometown on television, appearing in the season finale of the HBO series Treme, Conan O’Brien, ESPN, NPR, BBC, NBC, and the Discovery Channel. The Soul Rebels continue charting new territory today, combining top notch musicianship and songs with grooves that celebrate life in the time-honored New Orleans style.

Tickets are $12 advance, $15 day of show. Doors open at midnight. Entry is free with a CMJ Music Marathon Badge. For tickets, call 212-414-5994 or visit highlineballroom.com.
