River City Rebels
It‘s been said you can‘t fake authenticity. This statement applies perfectly to a group of six friends who just so happen to be musicians with a common goal. Six friends who were reared on late night AM radio and who obtained records by any and all means possible: yard sales, parents‘ collections, and used bins. Six friends who dreamed of playing in a band, cutting records, and touring. Six friends with dreams of glory, rock ‘n‘ roll stardom, and, well, world domination.
It‘s been a tough road, sure, as they started out with the usual humble beginnings not unlike most garage bands, endured their fair share of line-up changes, had their much-needed attention to the band diverted by school, and other such distractions. Yet through it all, they‘ve somehow managed to emerge (relatively) unscathed and overcome it all. Chalk it up to heart, passion, perseverance, and, above all else, their irrepressible love for the music AND the fans. Never will a band with more regard and appreciation for their followers be found. See ‘em perform their enthralling set just once and you‘ll be hooked. Hear one of the guys‘ anthems and you just know there‘s something special about this band. Perhaps not the most polished musicians, what they lack in skill is compensated by their immense enthusiasm, grit, and unparalleled drive - not to mention a healthy dose of sex appeal, but that‘s another story entirely.
After five memorable years, three immaculate releases, and playing over 400 shows - a feat not easily accomplished - while breaking many a heart along the way, the guys‘ hunger for even more success and glory remains insatiable. These six guys have one goal and one goal only - to take back the airwaves and show all those disillusioned with the current state of rock ‘n‘ roll that all hope is NOT lost, despite how it may seem at the present moment. With the rock ‘n‘ roll swagger all the boys only wish they could call their own and the intriguing mixture of boyish charm and bad-boy attitude that make the girls swoon, these guys are something else, a group of friends both envied and admired. And despite their manic credo of sex, drugs, and rock ‘n‘ roll, definitely have what it takes to succeed at anything they want to achieve. Yes, indeed, the future is wide open for this band. What will their legacy be? It‘s still too early to tell, but undoubtedly the music world will never be the same once all is said and done.
You have been forewarned, these, my friends, are the River City Rebels - never the best boyfriend, but always great for a one-night stand, the spit in your face that never felt so good, the last kiss goodbye that lingers for days on end and leaves you wanting more. Cute and cocky, sexy and striking,, there‘s no question the Rebels are THE ONLY OTHER BAND THAT MATTERS.
