The Soul Rebels Brass band will be kicking off a big weekend tonight at their regular Thursday night spot at Le Bon Temps Roule. They'll be getting ready to drop their new CD "No Place Like Home" at their release party at Tipitina's on Friday night.

Going back to June of 2009, we've been working with the Soul Rebels as part of our brass band documentary project (be we, I mean myself, Jonathan Bachman, Michael Seaman, Greg Rhoades, and the intern Clay Smith, among others who make up our production crew). We aim to document not only the history of brass bands in New Orleans but their cultural significance to the city and the lives of the players themselves.

The Soul Rebels allowed us into their lives and let us record a show at the Blue Nile not too long ago to do the documentary in exchange for putting together an EPK for them. It contains some interview footage, press on the band and cuts from five songs played that night. It's also a brief glimpse into our documentary's subject matter. Enjoy.
