Orchestral and atmospheric, composed and chaotic.

The music of Gitbox Rebellion spans and defies the genres of jazz, rock, folk, and chamber music.

Unashamedly analogue, Gitbox Rebellion is an innovative and exciting seven-piece, multi-cultural Guitar ensemble who’ve built an ever-increasing and loyal fan-base performing intricate and clever original compositions as well as a few much-loved guitar hero covers.

The group blends jazz, classical, ambient, minimalist, and even heavy metal influences to produce a highly textured sound, almost orchestral in scale. But don't be fooled, Gitbox is full of bright accessible hooks, interspersed with the moody, the melodic, the jaunty, and the downright subversive.

Gitbox Rebellion is the brainchild of musical director Nigel Gavin. Original members Russell Hughes and Kim Halliday (Pacific Curls) remain part of the ensemble and are joined by Doug Robertson, Rob Mita, Sam Loveridge, Tomaslav Skulic, and Sonia Wilson.

They’ve toured nationally and released two albums - Pesky Digits (featuring nine guitars) and Touchwood (featuring four guitars, cello, violin, tablas, and flute).

Tapas and Show
Guests attending shows at The Festival Club can try our new Tapas and Show package. The Lysnar ballroom oozes elegance, with high ceilings and chandeliers reflecting its vintage. The chefs will present a tantalising selection of tapas, which change daily.
Note, beverages are additional. Patrons are seated at tables of four. Where your party is smaller, you may be seated with another party.

Everyone is welcome to linger late and enjoy the post-show atmosphere.

“The group 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 approachable music that will ensure them a steady following.”
- Tara Werner, New Zealand Herald
