Rebelution: Reggae Rockers Brave Cold Season for Winter Greens Tour

While Mother Nature continues to wreak havoc on our thermostats, most people are bundling up and keeping indoors during the chilly season. Everyone except California-based reggae rockers Rebelution that is.

The Santa Barbara-natives are ditching the warm embrace of their sandy sunny digs to embark on another wintertime road trip on their aptly titled Winter Greens Tour, which will hit the Marquee Theatre on Friday, February 15.

Vocalist/guitarist Eric Rachmany, keyboardist Rory Carey, drummer Wesley Finley, and bassist Marley Williams are already a year removed from their third record, Peace of Mind, but as a result of releasing the album in three alternate versions they still have plenty of material to draw from. Their most commercially successful album to date came in acoustic and dub renditions of each track.

We caught up with Rachmany as the band gears up for their sold-out show in Tempe.
