"The Green Mountain Rebels sound like Bob Dylan on steroids!" as described by a first time audience member when GMR played with Trampled by Turtles in St. Cloud, MN.
Drawing from a wide variety of musical landscapes the Green Mountain Rebels are striving to create a new sound and energy to the current music scene. Formed in the summer of 2004 the Green Mountain Rebels burst on to the Midwest scene by winning the 2005 Miller Genuine Draft Battle of the Bands and getting the opportunity to play on the Harley Davidson stage at Summerfest in Milwaukee, WI. Since then the band has been gaining fans from the Twin Cities to Milwaukee and everywhere in between. With a high energy stage performance and a toe tapping beat, the Rebels have left many a stage with the audience calling for more. The band has also been fortunate to play with such diverse acts as Charlie Parr, God Johnson, and Trampled by Turtles, and can fit in and win over any fan no matter what their musical preference. Fresh from the studio and about to release their first full length studio album the band is looking to continue their climb up the rock n roll ladder with the same sweat, spirit, and determination that has gotten them to where they are today.
Influences include: The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Bruce Springsteen, Wilco, The Beatles, Neil Young, Tina Turner, Lucinda Williams, Howling Wolf, Janis Joplin, Muddy Waters, Waylon Jennings, Gram Parsons and CCR.
