The Rebells were formed on 24th of July 2012 by Izzy and Felix. Our sound is a huge mix of different styles from different eras reflected by our minds. Some of the biggest influences of the
Rebells include the early Black Keys and the Jimi Hendrix Experienced. After noumerous bassists and guitarists we finally found the bassman worthy to be a Rebell, Gabriel Gemme.
Ever since the day one we been coming up with original songs. So far we've released one hundred copies of our first EP(recorded, mixed and produced by Izzy).
They diseappeard as fast as they appeared. In little time that we had, we've already played big gigs like
the one with Die Mannequin @ Underworld.
