Gitbox Rebellion is an innovative and exciting 6 piece Guitar ensemble, performing intricate and clever original compositions as well as a few much loved guitar hero covers, such as The Good, The Bad and The Ugly and Guitar Boogie… Gitbox has to be heard live to fully appreciate the acoustic guitar and the differences each player brings to the instrument.
Described as “Igor Stravinsky meets Pete Townshend,” the group’s music - is a joyous collision of worlds, managing to be infectiously moody, upbeat, grungy and intricately textured all at once.
Honouring the beautiful character of acoustic guitar, Gitbox Rebellion’s exuberant blend of jazz, rock, folk and classical will have you in sonic raptures. Extraordinary live, they’ll have you hooked from the first fingerpick to the last.
“[They] played with a discipline and rapport that would be the envy of any classical chamber orchestra. In sum, Gitbox Rebellion provide stimulating, intelligent, and above all, approachable music.” NZ Herald
