Will the Soul Rebels play with Metallica at Voodoo?

Posted By on Mon, Oct 22, 2012 at 4:23 PM

Many New Orleanians have heard the Soul Rebels cover the Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams (are made of this)," but have you heard them cover Metallica's hit "Enter Sandman"? The clip above from one of Metallica's 30th anniversary concerts in San Francisco shows the Rebels can do a pretty good job with it. The Rebels will join Eurhythmics' guitarist Dave Stewart at Voodoo for a cover of "Sweet Dreams." Should we expect a cameo with Metallica as well?

UPDATE: I spoke with Soul Rebels snare drummer Lumar Leblanc Tuesday afternoon, and he says the band would be interested in playing with Metallica, but the two bands haven't discussed it.

The video below doesn't show the bands really meshing, but they performed together at the anniversary party.
