Freebie Friday

From Austin City Limits to Outside Lands, Rebelution is frequently a fixture at high profile music festivals across the globe. Founded in the beach-side town of Isla Vista, California, the band has been going strong since 2004. Collegemates-turned-bandmates, Eric Rachmany, Matt Velasquez, Rory Carey, Wesley Finley and Marley D. Williams put their musical abilities together and the rest is history. Known for their intriguing melodies, forward-thinking lyrics, and unique arrangements, Rebelution is a leader among American reggae-fusion ensembles. Their album, Courage to Grow earned an iTunes Editor’s Choice for Best Reggae Album of 2007. The single from that album, “Safe and Sound”, made it’s way around the airwaves from San Diego’s 91X to Los Angeles’s KROQ and beyond. Get into the Pacific Coast spirit this Freebie Friday and try your luck at winning passes from Bookmans!
