"Rebel Rebel" are a 6 piece (seven piece for larger gigs) David Bowie tribute faithfully recreating the most popular songs from Bowie’s extensive back catalogue.
The band themselves are fans and have a deep respect for the man and his music and this comes across in their performance.
The set for this show is built on Bowie's most loved and enduring songs and the band have worked hard at re- creating the sound and look of a David Bowie concert.
Lead singer Peter Quinn has always had his voice compared to Bowie’s. “I released and album of original material in 1999 and it was instantly compared to Bowie. It was something I had been told from the time I cut my first demo tape, so when I was looking for a new project a Bowie tribute was the obvious direction.”
The band members have all been working in the music industry for many years they are all accomplished and experienced musicians, which allows the band to competently take on any of the diverse and complex songs from Bowie’s back catalogue, including their Best of Bowie’s Berlin gigs for which the band have received critical acclaim. Made up of some of the finest session musicians in the country, Rebel Rebels musicians have previously played with an array of Ireland’s top artists including; Sinead O’Connor, Clannad, Gavin Friday, Jack L, Brian Kennedy, Lesley Garrett, The Irish Tenors, The RTE Concert Orchestra, Brian Downey and Eric Bell & Brian Downey (Thin Lizzy).
From a gig to close the first ever Bowie Symposium in Limerick University, playing to an audience from New Ross to New Zealand (and interviewed for a New Zealand radio show)
They receive rave reviews for their shows and how similar their lead singers voice is to that of David Bowie’s.
They have frequently been told they are not just the best Bowie tribute, but the best tribute band in Ireland.
