Tell us about your new single/album/tour?
It’s time for our Rebellified Christmas Spectacular, our annual celebration that features a wall of Christmas classics mixed in with the usual lashings of crowd favourites old and new.
This year we’ll be decking the halls of the Thornbury Theatre on Saturday 3 December with special guests the Sugar Fed Leopards and Helena Plazza.
How would you describe your sound in food form and why?
[pullquote]This year we’ll be decking the halls of the Thornbury Theatre on Saturday 3 December with special guests the Sugar Fed Leopards and Helena Plazza. [/pullquote]A very nutty Christmas cake with quite a few extra dashes of grandma’s sherry!
Which of your songs resonate most strongly and why?
At this point in time it’s the fun Christmas ones we pinch from the Phil Spector Christmas record. They make everyone smile and the sweet baby Jesus knows that the world could really go for a smile about now.
Tell us a quick, on the road, anecdote.
That time we scared a whole mob of cockatoos at an outdoor gig in Bendigo was fun.
Where do you draw inspiration from?
We don’t draw it from anywhere. We cast our net, close our eyes, drift off and float down the river of life and when we wake up we find a haul of inspiration in our net.
Which song do you wish you wrote?
Can’t Hardly Wait, The Replacements. Defeat never sounded so catchy and uplifting.
What’s next for you?
Looking forward to a rockin’ 2017 with more gigs and, fingers crossed, a couple more new songs to be released and danced to.
What’s your scene?
That scene where people are happy and dancing and can’t stop smiling, that’s our scene.
About The Rebelles
The Rebelles are merry excited to announce the return of their annual Christmas Spectacular at the Thornbury Theatre!
And don’t you go cryin’ nor poutin’ neither, because Santa’s also gift wrapped some joy from them jolly Sugar Fed Leopards plus a box of Helena Plazza’s vintage pop stylings to leave under your tree. But only if you’ve been extra bad this year …
Melbourne’s girl group goddesses The Rebelles love putting a festive smile on Melbourne’s dial every year with their unique wall of Christmas classics mixed in with the usual lashings of crowd favourites old and new.
For almost 9 years The Rebelles have been taking girl group classics from the ‘50s and ‘60s and blasting them into the twenty-first century with a live show that never fails to get audiences on their feet. They’ve sung murder ballads with Dan Sultan at the Reclink Community Cup, filled the Flinders St stage at the first Melbourne White Night and crooned Christmas carols with the Black Eyed Susans.
Their Christmas gift to you is a free download of a Rebellified Darlene Love classic – Christmas (Baby Please Come Home).
