We’re very excited to be coming around to yet another Little Big Fest! Our fall festival features a combination of local and national bands, performing roots, bluegrass, jam, funk, world, blues, jazz, and soul music. This year’s fest will happen at venues across the East Village in Des Moines on Friday, November 15th.
We are really excited to be teaming up with Civic Music Association to present the festival’s headliner, The Soul Rebels Brass Band! The Soul Rebels are an eight-piece New Orleans based brass ensemble that incorporate elements of soul, jazz, funk, hip-hop, rock and pop music.
Since we brought Public Enemy into town a few years back for 80/35 and we wish we could bring Louis Armstrong to Des Moines, we figure it makes sense to have the Soul Rebels swing by! Watch this video to get a feel for what the group is all about:
We will be making a full lineup announcement of over 15 bands on Tuesday, October 8th.
Outside of all that, here’s what we recommend you do in the meantime:
