the Soul Project NOLA + Ashton Hines and the Big Easy Brawlers


JULY 17TH, 2015 @ The Maison

Digging deep into the soulful grooves dug by O.V. Wright and Wilson Pickett,the funky moves of James Brown and Maceo Parker, the old school cool of the Meters and The Neville Brothers, and the feel good fuel of the Crescent City itself, the Soul Project brings New Orleans soul with them wherever they go.
Displaced by Hurricane Katrina, this group described as a “…hip group with horns…” spent 7 months building a following on the Jersey Shore and Tri-State area before returning to New Orleans to help and be part of the rebuilding process. They are planning to split their time between the two places and keep playing to as many people as they can while spreading the New Orleans culture and music wherever they can.
Currently, the band is deeply rooted in the local New Orleans music scene. From Tipitina's to Frenchmen Street, crowds amass for serious dancing and grooving. It's always a party when the deep bass and drum pocket and bright horn, organ and guitar melodies shimmer on top. Current lineup consists of:
-Jon Cristian Duque, protege and alumni of the legendary Walter "Wolfman" Washington and the Roadmasters-guitar, vocals
-Will "The Deal" Repholz, prominent NOLA touring and session musician-electric bass, vocals
-David Ludman-New York raised but internationally trained in the school of jazz-saxophone
-Colin Davis, classically trained jazz musician, prominent live performance artist-drums
-Jeremy Habegger, European ex-pat, technically schooled in a fusion of international jazz and roots music- keyboards,vocals
