Blasting out of the woodsy confines of the Berkshires like a love slug from the gun of life is Rebel Alliance, a musical revelation that isn’t afraid to cull the tedious excuses of modern day music and spark a cultural transformation. With deep influences in reggae and improvisational jam rock, it is safe to say that The Reb help carry the revolution to the stage and, ultimately, to the fans. During their live performance you can feel an increasing essence of family which compels you to reach a hand out to a troubled stranger. But their music goes beyond lyrics and notes, beyond the love of kin and kith, beyond the cozy limits of a fixed description. It is a universal blueprint for society as a whole. As a band sheathed in unending positivity, they’re armed with an ardor that is able to form a permanent wrinkle in the status quo. Consider them the ambassadors of Ragetown, set to slay the dark lords of demoralization and malevolence with their tight grooves and valuable rhetoric.
