Sixteen years into an effervescent career, California reggae band and touring juggernaut Rebelution remains abundantly creative. Its members are as focused and committed as they are easygoing and laid-back. “Free Rein”, the band’s sixth studio album, while still rooted in the Jamaican inspiration that Rebelution’s songs and sounds have always paid homage to, takes experimental leaps and new adventures too, welcoming old fans and new audiences alike. Ever expanding, the Rebelution phenomenon continues to spread good vibes on tour, and in the studio.
Joining Rebelution in Bend this year are U.K. reggae legends Steel Pulse who have been pioneers in the genre for more than four decades. The Green, Keznamdi and DJ Mackle round out this stellar end-of-the-summer reggae lineup.
