GoNOLA Radio

The brass band tradition is one of the most special and definitive aspects of New Orleans culture. There’s nothing like a bunch of horns playing traditional second line, funk or hip hop to get you on your feet, and the Soul Rebels Brass Band encapsulates that spirit with skill, style and creativity.

Bass drummer Derrick “Oops” Moss & trumpeter Julian Gosin,of the Soul Rebels join us on this episode of GoNOLA Radio to discuss what they do, how they do it and how it plays into the larger brass band culture of New Orleans

New Orleans holds many hidden treasures, curiosities tucked away for decades that are well-known by the neighborhood but a mystery to the wider world. One of these such gems lies in a part of town that has seen a bit of a resurgence over the past few years. That’s why this week’s GoNOLA Find is the St. Roch Cemeteries & Chapel, where more than a century’s worth of offerings have been left to a saint believed to heal all wounds.

The lighting’s practically non-existent, the décor isn’t quite chic, and the liquor selection isn’t exactly top shelf — while these may sound like turn-offs, these qualities give our favorite local dive bars special character. They may look a little rusty, but when it comes to dives, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. The drinks are cheap and the company’s always interesting. Check out our list of some of New Orleans best dive bars.

It takes something really special to galvanize huge groups of New Orleanians to take to the streets and party at 8:00 a.m. We’re talking like Mardi Gras Day, catching coconuts at Zulu kind of big! Considering thousands of people take to the streets for the 8:00 a.m. (sharp!) running of the bulls, then you know that San Fermin in Neuva Orleans has got to be a big deal, with the Big Easy Rollergirls playing their parts as the “bulls” on wheels, And it all happens Thursday, July 10-Sunday, July 13, with the big Running of the Bulls event on Saturday, July 12 in the morning.
