With their reggae groove and undeniable rhythm, Rebelution sounds exactly like where they come from: sunny Isla Vista, California. They are unmistakably the definition of a grass-roots band, forming from the bottom-up, playing countless local shows until they received much-deserved critical success. One of the many strengths of this band is that they are most comfortable playing onstage in front of their devoted fans.
If you can make it half-way through one of their songs without starting to groove along and dance, then you are an extremely rare breed. Eric Rachmany’s vocals pour a warm, enveloping embrace over the music, all the while putting a bit of distortion and edge on his guitar work. The inclusion of trumpet and saxaphone players give an authentic reggae atmosphere to each piece.
This band is making strides across the world, playing huge festivals and intimate venues alike. One of the roughly 100+ shows they will play this year will take place at the infamous Riviera Theatre. It’s a gorgeous venue with amazing acoustics to suit the musicality of Rebelution. Their opening act, Hirie, is a rising Filipino artist that is sure to blow you away. The show is 18+ and tickets will be the affordable price of $25 each when they go on sale July 25th, 2016 12:00 PM. This will be an unbelievable show that you won’t want to miss!
