Recording of the EP starts this weekend. Thanks to everyone for their patience, but we want to assure you that we will have it ready for you really soon. I will try to put some clips from the recording process as we progress.

On a sadder note, next week we bid farewell to A Train, and we are sad to see him go, but wish him nothing but the best of luck in his musical endeavors. Be sure to come out to Boomerang’s in Urbana next Fri March 8th, to listen to him jam with us one last time..


More to come,

December is here, and I’m enjoying a little R & R at the moment. I uploaded a new demo song called “3 Chords and the Truth” to the media player today. Be sure and check it out and let me know what you think. Hope you all have a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!

Time to hibernate. See ya next month, with a whole bunch of exciting stuff I can’t quite tell ya’ll about just yet:)

I took a month off from the website to concentrate on writing some new tunes. I would like to say thanks to everyone for coming out to support us!  I think the Rebel Daredevils will be hitting the studio at some point this month to start initial recording on a full length album. Hopefully we will have it ready sometime early next year.  More on that next month:

Until then,

It’s only been 6 short months since the daredevils got started, but it’s been great. Sharing the stage with Chris Cagle, Casey James, Matt Poss Band, Logan Mize,  and Walker Hayes has been a great time. Everyone feels very blessed to have had the support and positive reception that we’ve recieved so far. We look forward to the future and can’t wait to announce what we’ve got coming up next! In the meantime, we have 3 new t-shirt designs that will be available at upcoming shows in June. Thanks to all the new friends and artists we’ve met, and a special thanks to all the sponsors who have helped us to get the ball rolling!


See ya’ll soon!
