Rebelution: Rebelution is one of the latest reggae bands to emerge from the burgeoning California reggae scene. Rebelution has their reggae roots in the fertile ground of Isla Vista, a Santa Barbara community in California, and initially made a name for themselves playing local shows. These laid-back, relaxed concert dates that shaped not only their future music, but also their hugely successful tour dates. The band's popularity is due in part to the velvet smooth vocal stylings of lead singer Eric Rachmany and simple yet melodic reggae riffs. Recently, Rebelution spread the seeds of their homegrown reggae at tour dates on the 2011 Winter Greens Tour. Now fans can look forward to tour dates on the 2011 Seedless Summer Tour with Slightly Stoopid.

Rebelution began as a college band between friends Eric Rachmany (lead singer/guitar), Matt Valesquez (vocals/guitar), Rory Carey (keyboard), Wesly Finney (drums), and Marley Williams (bass). The band played local concert dates and their slight popularity prompted the group to produce a self-titled EP in 2006. With both their album and shows becoming popular in a town known for its love of music, Rebelution found the perfect company to release its first full-length album: Controlled Substance Sound Labs.

Rebelution's album, Courage to Grow, released in June of 2007 to great success, with the single "Safe and Sound" playing on radio stations from San Francisco to San Diego. Commercial success continued when the album reached #4 on Billboard's Top Reggae Albums, launching Rebelution into the public eye. Unfortunately, guitarist Matt Velasquez left shortly after the album's release, leaving the band short a guitar and a set of pipes. Instead of replacing Velasquez, Rebelution continued to record albums and play tour dates as a four-piece band. However, Velasquez's departure didn't hinder Rebelution, as the reggae group founded their own record label - 87 Music - to release their follow-up album. Bright Side of Life was released in August 2009 and earned even more success than the previous album, this time reaching the #1 spot on Billboard's Top Reggae Albums. The album also took the #1 reggae spot on iTunes, placing #3 in overall top albums in the United States.

The success of the album sent Rebelution on a number of concert dates in 2010, including the Harmony Festival in Santa Rosa, CA with label mates The Expendables and Slightly Stoopid. Even after recently releasing their Remix EP, Rebelution is continuing to perform a number of 2011 tour dates. Rebelution is starting summer off right with a number of scheduled tour dates for 2011 music festivals in the states, including: The Wakarusa Music Festival, CrossroadsKC, the Sierra Nevada World Music Festival, the Dave Matthews Band Caravan Festival, and the High Sierra World Music Festival. After a concert dates at the All Good Music Festival, Rebelution is heading out on 2011 tour dates on the Seedless Summer Tour with Slightly Stoopid and Shwayze & Cisco Adler. The first concert date is on July 21 in Missoula, Montana and end on August 27 in Chicago, which will subsequently end Rebelution's scheduled tour dates in 2011. With such a busy year, fans can't expect Rebelution to schedule many more tour dates in 2011, so they take the opportunity to these darlings of the reggae scene.
