New Reb is not just music...
...it's a movement of people who want to better themselves for the sake of the planet, the universe. A movement to help people gain consciousness, and awareness of whats going on around them. A movement that promotes positivity and the realization that we are all mirrors, and that we all reflect upon one another.
- New Reb, conscious roots-rock-hiphop
We are a conscious, Roots Rock/ Hip-Hop band out of Minneapolis, Mn. Started by Drew Misik aka Negative One. Drew started his musical career in the Minneapolis underground Hip-Hop scene in 2003, doing shows over beats played on a CD player.
After being frustrated by the lack of energy created by a CD player, Drew knew that he needed a live band! Thus, Negative One and The New Rebelution was created and after a short while, Drew decided that he wanted to release the Negative One part and just be “The New Rebelution”. Since then we have shortened to simply “New Reb” and have expanded to a wider spectrum of fans including the Midwest festival scene, Reggae, Hip-Hop, Funk, & Pop music fans and has now become an integral part of the Midwest music scene.
New Reb has played 10,000 Lakes Festival, Harvest Festival, Bella Madre Festival, Project Earth Festival and will be expanding more into the greater festival circuit in the summer of 2011. New Reb has shared stages with or worked w/ Matisyahu, Xavier Rudd, Groundation, Culture, Blue King Brown, Trevor Hall, Wookiefoot, The Dirty Heads, Dessa, P.O.S., and many more.
