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 tunes and covers – is a joyous collision of worlds, managing to be infectiously moody, upbeat, grungy and intricately textured all at once.
Extraordinary live, they’ll have you hooked from the first fingerpick to the last.
With Nigel Gavin, Kim Halliday, Russell Hughes, Rob Mita, Sonia Wilson, Doug Robertson, Sam Loveridge and Bodi Hermans.

*Auckland Arts Festival/Te Ahurei Toi o Tāmaki (AAF) was sadly unable to open Thursday 4 March as planned, due to Auckland being at Alert Level 3. While we are working hard to reschedule much of the activity from the first part of our programme, we have been forced to cancel a small number of shows and events, including Gitbox Rebellion at Warkworth Town Hall. Ticketholders will be refunded and nothing more needs to be done. The current list of show updates can be found here and AAF's COVID-19 Ticketing Terms & Conditions here.
“[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.”
