Rebel Hotel is not just another one your typical Sunset Strip party bands. They are in fact a punk driven down and dirty ROCK AND ROLL/HARD ROCK outfit with a whole lot to say!
The band was originally conceived behind the Orange curtain by frontman Ricky Ohrn, but were never truly born until he landed in the City of Angels.
This upward evolution of course also led to an ascending line up change that was built on an authentic platform combining both a deep adulation of understanding and an organic appreciation for music.
An eclectic and eccentric merger of musicianship comprised of Swedish born front man Ricky O., Japanese born bass player Satoshi Itchiyanagi and British born axe man Aaron Lee and East coast drummer Carl Marelli.
If you are looking for a band to aurally assault you, these are not your boys, if you desire sonic drool or the slow plodding drone of endless overture, if you long for sappy sad songs.... then please look elsewhere. But if you crave an honest workingman's straight up rock n roll band with a punk and country twist then by all means... come and hang with us here, in our REBEL HOTEL.
Rumors started spreading around Southern California about these underground rock stars before they even played their first show, yet their arrival has been long awaited from their recognition on the music scene.
Ricky Ohrn founded REBEL HOTEL in 2011.
Born and raised in Stockholm, Sweden he always desired adventure.
After two world trips and starving for action, he relocated to Southern California in 2000. In the years that followed, he played guitar in the So Cal rock scene and was founder and core member of many L.A. bands as a guitarist.
After his previous bands demises he honed up in the studio and wrote many songs that infused Rock n’ Roll, punk, metal and a huge dose of attitude containing experiences from his extensive world travel, and he simply became the singer.
REBEL HOTEL started out as a heavy three piece, but in the summer of 2012, they added a second guitarist and the band was finally complete. It was not until the band became the two guitar four piece when things really ignited. The energy in the band shot through the roof. Just a few shows later a buzz started brewing in Orange County, where they were based, about the band.
The band moved the Rebel studio to Hollywood in 2013,
REBEL HOTEL is constantly working on new songs and their action packed shows.
There is a lot to come from these four vagabonds who live for music and their rock n’ roll lifestyle.
New music, videos and a whole lot more are constantly being added to the rotation, set lists changes from show to show, and you can never predict what you will experience when you see these four desperados live.
But one thing is for sure…you will be taken away by high energy, a truck load of attitude, and you will go home satisfied knowing you’ve seen something different, new, and really exciting.
