Lumar Leblanc, T.S.U. grad, snare drummer/bandleader for the Soul Rebels Brass Band, and post-Katrina Houstonian, has a new Houston-based group.
The New Orleans Hustlers Brass Band is available for “parades, stage shows, jazz funerals, weddings and parties.” In LeBlanc’s words, the Hustlers will “travel the world over and provide quality music for any occasion.”
Here, after the jump, are two proofs of that claim, a YouTube interview with LeBlanc and Soul Rebels/Hustlers bandmate Marcus Hubbard (along with some footage from one of the Soul Rebels Houston shows), and booking info for the Hustlers:
If this music doesn’t get your party shaking, you must be throwing down in a morgue. For booking information, call 504-621-2357. – John Nova Lomax
