Gitbox Rebellion is an innovative and exciting multi-member guitar ensemble that performs intricate and clever original compositions as well as a few much-loved guitar hero covers. Orchestral and atmospheric, composed and chaotic, the music spans and defies the genres of jazz, rock, folk and chamber music.
Gitbox Rebellion released two acclaimed albums Pesky Digits and Touchwood on Rattle Records. Exuberant and life-affirming, the music of Gitbox Rebellion members is as vital and infectious as ever. Igor Stravinsky meets Pete Townshend, only to find they have a lot in common.
Recently reformed the new group brings together original members and new guitarists performing classics from their albums as well as new material. The essence of Gitbox Rebellion's sound is textured wall-to-wall guitars, where the traditional acoustic character of the instrument remains fundamental. It is a touchstone when everything else about the music becomes unfamiliar, and the mild-mannered acoustic character is extended to dynamic effect.
