Imagine blending the sounds of Mardi Gras funk, soft rock, and reggae so seemingly it defies category. Now shrink that idea into a seven-piece ensemble, add a hip hop sensibility plus a hundred years of New Orleans jazz tradition, and you'll get the Louisiana sound known as the Soul Rebels. After parading around the streets of New Orleans in the traditions of the second line and jazz funerals, the Soul Rebels began their professional debut with the famed Neville Brothers in New Orleans at the Hot Spot Tipitina's! The Soul Rebels rocked so hard and so strong they continued opening for the Neville Brothers and beyond. The band was featured in Spike Lee's HBO Documentary "When the Levees Broke".
Marcus Eaton's lyrics often reflect the natural beauty that surrounded him growing up on top of a mountain in rural Idaho, but the level of talent of this entirely self-taught singer/songwriter/guitarist is world-class. Listener friendly, but steeped in technique - Marcus combines challenging rhythms with ornate melodies that glide with the appeal of mainstream pop songs. Incorporating rock, reggae, flamenco, classical, jazz and folk, it is Marcus' distinctive songwriting that gives this music its farthest reach. Captivating audiences wherever he plays with his guitar mastery and clear voice, Marcus Eaton is on the verge of all-out success. Performances include shows with Jake Shimabukuro, Rodrigo Y Gabriela, Dave Matthews Band, Tim Reynolds, Victor Wooten, Train, Bob Dylan, Jewel, and many others.
