The Soul Rebels, Anderson .Paak, and more linked up for a livestream performance on Friday, February 7th as part of food delivery app Grubhub‘s Sound Bites webcast concert series. The Sound Bites series, powered by First Tube Media, works alongside the Feed The Soul Foundation, which aims to aid marginalized entrepreneurs in the culinary industry with business development resources and support in order to foster sustainable business growth.
The livestream featured exclusive live performances by Anderson .Paak and The Free Nationals as well as a The Soul Rebels and Friends set featuring fellow New Orleans favorites Big Freedia, Trombone Shorty, and Tarriona “Tank” Ball (Tank and the Bangas). During the live concert, fans tuning in were encouraged to be active in the comments sections: for every comment posted during the stream, Grubhub has pledged to donate $5 to Feed The Soul Foundation (up to $100,000).
After each of the performances, the artists took some time to answer questions from the comment section. Members of The Soul Rebels talked about their favorite city/venue to play (New Orleans for most, with a little love for Brooklyn and the Brooklyn Bowl) while Anderson .Paak referenced his beloved Tiny Desk concert and explained that he probably wouldn’t return for a second round. As .Paak explained of his 2017 Tiny Desk, which has racked up an astonishing 62 million views to date, “I think I’m done with Tiny Desk. You know, we have the most views so I don’t see why we gotta do it again. You know, quit while we’re ahead.
