Broken Witt Rebels Tickets
A four-piece blues and rock band, Broken Witt Rebels bring soul and a fine degree of musical skill to their live performances. Originating from Birmingham, the group is made up of Danny Core, a vocalist and rhythm guitar player, Luke Davis on bass and vocals, James Tranter, another vocalist who also plays lead guitar, and finally, James Dudley, the band's drummer. Evoking the sounds of bluesy rock that is reminiscent of the famous Stax guitarists, Broken Witt Rebels have a swagger about them as they perform. Their growing number of fans often appreciate their live appeal, which has plenty of drive and energy. However, for many it is their well-crafted songs that make them stand out from the crowd, blending the group's soulful harmonies with crunching electric guitar riffs.
Broken Witt Rebels' career milestones
After forming, Broken Witt Rebels mostly played gigs in their home city of Birmingham before recording their first EP. This came out in 2013 and was appropriately entitled This Town Belongs To Me. Although blues-soaked, the tracks sounded like they would be just as at home if presented in front of an indie rock crowd. “All Worn Out” was the first track on the work, which stamped the band's identity as a high-octane recording outfit.
In 2014, the band followed up their debut with another EP, called Howlin'. Some critics commented favourably on the work, with tracks such as “Shake Me Down” being compared to artist such as Paolo Nutini, for example. “Howlin'”, the title track of the EP, presented the band in full swagger mode, with plenty to offer fans of blues as well as classic rock aficionados. Dudley's thunderous drumming alongside Tranter’s layered guitar riff work even sounds like it might have come from an early Jimmy Page and John Bonham recording at times.
As the band's reputation grew following the release of their first two EPs, so they took on bigger gigs, often further afield than the West Midlands. In recent years, the group has toured along with Joanne Shaw Taylor and Kaleo, for example. The members of Broken Witt Rebels also played a string of dates in America for the first time, heading through the states of Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee and Texas, during a number of opening slots for shows by Whiskey Myers.
In 2016, the band's third EP came out. Georgia Pine featured six rabble-rousing tracks. The lead single from the EP, a track called “Low”, was the featured song of the week on Radio X. It also received a good deal of airplay on Planet Rock, helping to raise the band's profile.
