We call it "Outlaw Rock N Roll. “Shotgun Rebellion” bleeds southern tradition, it’s as simple as that. Formed in the southeast Oklahoma town of Ada, "Shotgun Rebellion's" Rick Davis (vocals / guitar), Eric Hatcher (bass), Wes Wallace (Guitar) and Johni Walker (drums) have come together to capture one of music’s most prized and forgotten ingredients… the Soul.
Creatively blending elements of classic southern rock icons such as “Lynrd Skynryd” and the “Allman Borthers”, country legends “Johnny Cash”, “Hank Williams Jr.”, and “David Alan Coe” and Hard Rock and Metal artists “Zakk Wylde’s Black Label Society, "Down", "Corrosion of Conformity", "Pantera", "Black Sabbath" and "Led Zeppelin” with a touch of the Blues…”Shotgun Rebellion combines these influences into a big ol’ kettle, brilliantly pulling out a sound that crosses many genres. With lyrical roots and ideals of outlaw country, the groove and feel of southern rock, peppered with the flavors and intensity of metal…”Shotgun Rebellion” delivers a music gumbo with a whiskey kick.
“SGR” has quickly elevated to become a top draw for many saloon and tavern’s themed bike nights, including national restaurant chain “Hooter’s”. “SGR” has also found success opening for many national touring acts “Ted Nugent" "Jackyl", "Micheal Schenker","Texas Hippie Coalition”, “Faster Pussycat”, “Forte”, “Warbeast”, “Lynch Mob”, "Candlebox","Saliva","Mushroomhead", "Smile Empty Soul","Taproot","Jack Russell's Great White" and the “Rev Jones Band”
