Rebel Rebel” is a 5 piece (six 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.
The set for this show is built on Bowies most loved and enduring songs and the band have worked hard at re-creating the sound and look of a David Bowie concert. The bands first gig at the Sunday Roast at the Mercantile Hotel Dublin (Oct 2010) resulted in a very positive review; “As tribute bands go, the idea is to do two things. Sound like the band when you play, and sound like the act when you sing. So they do exactly what it says on the tin.” 10/10/2010 review by Phillip Ó’Baoighealláin.
Lead singer Peter Quinn has always had his voice compared to Bowie’s. “I released and album of original material 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.”
“Sounds uncannily like David Bowie in good form.” Tony Clayton Lea, the Irish Times.
The band members have all been working in the music industry for many years and 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.
