{Friday BEATS} Soul Rebels Brass Band ~ Let It Roll

In case you missed it, last Friday I started a  {Friday BEATS} series here on my blog.   Today I thought I'd feature some NOLA music because it's just SO freakin' good. :) Since moving here, I'm now officially in love with brass bands.  They get you movin' and groovin' in no time.  C loves them, too!

Last weekend, we headed out to Frenchmen Street - a hoppin' street  that's filled with bars and restaurants that feature all the local music in town. And,  the best part of it all, you don't have to be in a bar or restaurant to hear some of the awesomeness that makes up the city...the street is loaded with it.

My favorite of all is when there's an awesome brass band playing on the street and it's jammed packed with people dancing.

Here's what I was able to catch before my phone died on me:

And here's a pic I took of the band playing:

I'm not sure what the band's name was, soI thought I'd feature another one that's pretty popular around here called, Soul Rebels Brass Band.

In this video, they're actually playing live at the Blue Nile, on Frenchmen.

So, if you ever come to NOLA - forget Bourbon St. and head on over to where all the locals hang!!  :)

Until next time...

{life is colorful}

and have a GROOVY weekend!
