Please be aware that if/when we return to Level 1, we may not have time to install our The Civic Club configuration before this weekend’s shows take place.

Honouring the beautiful character of acoustic guitar, Gitbox Rebellion’s exuberant blend of jazz, rock, folk and classical will have you in sonic raptures.

An acclaimed multi-member performance unit of uncanny ability and chemistry, Gitbox Rebellion make their guitars sound atmospheric, chaotic and orchestral – and better than you could ever imagine.

Described as “Igor Stravinsky meets Pete Townshend,” the group’s music – both original and covers – is a joyous collision of both worlds, managing to be infectiously moody, upbeat, grungy and intricately textured all at once. Extraordinary live, they’ll have you hooked from the first finger pick to the last.

With Nigel Gavin, Kim Halliday, Russell Hughes, Rob Mita, Sonia Wilson, Doug Robertson, Sam Loveridge and Bodi Hermans.

“[They] played with a discipline and rapport that would be the envy of any classical chamber orchestra. In sum, Gitbox Rebellion provide stimulating, intelligent, and above all, approachable music.
