Country Rockin' Rebels

Up from a dusty California horizon, come the Country Rockin' Rebels

Kid from Minnesota and kid from Virginia meet out west and make music under the bright California sunshine. The boys were inspired by Johnny Cash, The Doors, Merle Haggard, The Black Keys, The Hanks "Three," and The White Stripes mixing the Bakersfield country boogie with down home southern rock and blues. Now a six piece band with an incomparable rhythm section, dueling slide and lead guitars along with amazing fiddle and pedal steel, the Rebels bring passion, heart, creative songwriting as well as captivating musicianship to every performance.

The Rebels mix old school lyrical charm with hot guitars and a solid rhythm. They are a live musical journey that tears through the history of country, blues and rock ‘n roll mixing classic covers with solid, endearing original material. They are indeed as their motto states: “Too rock for country and too country for rock.”
