The Soul Rebels

The Soul Rebels are riding high in 2018, receiving national attention with a performance on NPR's Tiny Desk series, a debut late night TV appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, a headlining set at the global TED Conference, and an appearance and official soundtrack feature for Universal Pictures' hit comedy Girls Trip. The band continues to expand its international reach touring four continents including Europe, Australia, China, South Korea and Japan. Their explosive stage presence has led to live collaborations with the likes of: Nas, G-Eazy, Portugal. The Man, Robert Glasper, Pretty Lights, DMX, Curren$y, Joey Bada$$, Talib Kweli, GZA, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Mobb Deep, Raekwon, Metallica, and Marilyn Manson among many others, and opening for Lauryn Hill and Nile Rodgers.

The Soul Rebels started with an idea - to expand upon the pop music they loved on the radio and the New Orleans brass tradition they grew up on. They took that tradition and blended funk and soul with elements of hip hop, jazz and rock all within a brass band context. The band has built a career around an eclectic live show that harnesses the power of horns and drums in a deep pocket funk party-like atmosphere. The Soul Rebels continue to chart new territory as they feature in major films, tour globally, and combine topnotch musicianship with songs that celebrate dancing, life, funk and soul.

The Routine

Hailing from San Diego, California, The Routine is a five-piece rock collective that defies categorization in today’s genre-driven media cloud. A sonic melting pot of electric blues, soul and world styling, they are not simply a band—and they are anything but “routine”. Russell Ramo, guitar player and son of Syrian immigrants, explains, “Just by looking at us, you see the story of global artistic culture: Black, White, European, Middle Eastern and Latino. We epitomize diversity and the strength of its unity. Each of us contributes a unique flavor, while still respecting the unified sound of empowering and uplifting music.”

 While The Routine officially formed in May of 2013, their musical brotherhood reaches back nearly a decade. Its formation is rooted in the childhood friendship of guitarist Ramo and front man, Bryan Barbarin, an accomplished stage actor in the storied Lamb’s Players Theater circuit of San Diego. After several years of writing, performing and recording together in between plays, Barbarin and Ramo decided it was time to form a five-piece ensemble of their own. Says Barbarin, “I felt like I didn’t quite fit into the theater world. Music is more of an expression of myself, rather than the expression of somebody else that comes with acting.”

 Piecing together the collective that would become The Routine was an organic, if not effortless, process. Nick Hein (bass), Eduardo Canelon (percussion), Dave Butterfield (drums) and Russell all played together for several years backing Fela Kuti prodigy, Fidel Bateke, in the afro-beat jazz-fusion band, Bateke Beat. Under Bateke’s tutelage, they would refine their chops and form a kindred fraternity of musicianship. Adding Barbarin introduced the consummate front man: a singer with a natural stage presence and vocals that harness this locomotive of sound with a tone reminiscent of R&B legend, Ernest Evans--only more gritty and purposeful.

 Together, The Routine shatters the mold of conventional, over-produced and underwhelming music with their own brand of Rock ‘N’ Soul. Never complacent with the status quo, they are an ever-evolving conglomerate poised to please music lovers from all walks of life.
