Richter City Rebels x Ijebu Pleasure Club


Wellington's FIRST and FINEST second line RICHTER CITY REBELS join 11-piece Afrobeat/Pop covers machine IJEBU PLEASURE CLUB for a HI-ENERGY explosion of hot brass and drums. Take a trip from 1980s Nigeria to the corner of Rampart and Dumaine in New Orleans.

Mashing up the music you remember (and some that’s best forgotten) with the Nigerian funk style of Fela Kuti, and about a dozen musicians, IJEBU PLEASURE CLUB will surprise and delight. But mostly, get you shaking it.

The Richter City Rebels have a sound that blends RnB, soul, hip-hop, jazz and funk with the heart and soul of New Orleans brass band music. Trumpets, trombones, saxes, sousaphone, and percussion join to bring the ultimate Mardi Gras party, incorporating original compositions, funked-up pop tunes and hip-hop, the Rebels’ sound embodies the musical melting pot of Louisiana.
