Raging Arb and the Redheads play American music: as apple pie or redheads are American and complement any occasion. Their roots are in Rock n Roll, although a style labeled Rockabilly best describes the band. Rockabilly fuses Rock and Country with a touch of Rhythm and Blues. The Emery brothers and all original members grew up together through puberty into high school and have worked towards the bands developmental success. The bands stage sense is to enjoy themselves and foster ambiance in their audience. No pretense! No Us and Them relationship! No Rock star ego! Let your hair down, get your pride up, grab a girl and let it roll baby roll!

Bio: The Rockin' Rebels began in 1981, in Huntington Beach, CA appealing to both rockabilly and punk fans. They became a household word with teenagers all over Southern California. The first thing they did was record two singles. The first single "She's My Angel" and their second effort called "Let's Bop" which got quite a bit of radio attention, climbing to # 8 on KROQ . They received extensive airplay, in the U.S and Japan markets. They filled every room that they played in, The Rebels where rated in Music Connection Magazine as one of the top drawing attractions in the L.A Market 1982 .The Rockin Rebels were one of the strongest forces in the Rockabilly movement in all of Southern California.

Formed in 2005, they released their first album entitled "88" in 2006. Since that time, they've shared the stage with many great artists such as Nekromantix, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Wanda Jackson, and many others. Members of the Dead Kennedy's have called Hard Six "the ultimate party band" and fans often hail the band for their clear and relate-able lyrics, simmering intensity, and entertaining sense of humor.
Explosive, passionate, & raw, their music is honest (& honestly rocks) in the truest sense. Rough and rootsy, this raucous bunch fleshes out honky-tonk rhythms with an edgy tongue-in-cheek sensibility.
It's an entertaining and wildly unorthodox take on modern music, and Jackass's live shows exemplify both the bizarre paths that so-called "popular music" has taken through the decades, as well as the capabilities of its well-honed musicians. Having shared the stage with legendary artists like the late punk-rock poet laureate Joe Strummer (R.I.P.), George Jones, Bad Religion, X, The Reverend Horton Heat, Throw Rag, The Blasters, Los Lobos, Hank Williams III, Manic Hispanic, Exene & The Original Sinners, Flogging Molly, The Supersuckers and Nashville Pussy, the boys in Jackass are making waves in the new music world, wherever and whenever they're playing.
With founding-member of Bad Religion Peter Finestone joining the group, the Jackass sound has evolved into an explosive and decadent version of "post-everything" American music. Finestone's high-energy percussion is enhanced by Toby Emery 's undisciplined vocal approach and acoustic rhythms, as well as Billy McGraw's commanding electric guitar. And who knows rounds out the driving rhythm section.
Overall, this is a dynamic and boisterous live show, an intoxicating mix of country-western nostalgia with the power of the early west-coast punk movement.
So, you are now officially invited to one of the funnest honky-tonk shows that modern rock has ever seen. Bred from the scattered oilfields of the Southern California coastline, Jackass slings hard licks ranging from the down-home rebelliousness of American rock 'n' roll and C&W to classic punk, with a couple of ass-thumpin', teeth-grindin' dips into mainstream top-forty to boot.
Learn 'yerselves a useful lesson in modern thrash-based punk-ranchero, music fans: Jackass is like Madonna on a gallon of moonshine, Johnny Cash on crack, and the Backstreet Boys with beat-up black eyes! Musically speaking, Jackass fires a shotgun-blast at modern popular-culture, and it's a shot that's right on target.
The WP give these classic songs a re-birth, a modern and sometimes hot-rodded sound created out of their liking and love for Johnny Cash. They don’t sound like any particular band. They do have all kinds of influences, but that just brings a very colorful and layered sound to what they do with the Johnny Cash songs. Some songs are sped up, and some are even slowed down. It depends on the content, style, and story of the song. They have four different band members, with four different perspectives, and four very different palette of paint to work from. You add all that together, and you get their sound with the Johnny Cash overtone essence and presence.
They strive to be like “a flower of light in a field of darkness.” These are the lyrics in the song “Greystone Chapel,” written by Glen Sherley (an inmate at Folsom Prison). Johnny Cash had performed this song at Folsom Prison while Sherley was still there. Whether they are headlining a summer concert series for over 10,000 people, or performing for one special person, they strive to inspire and uplift any environment, touch people’s hearts and make them smile. The WP have played at benefit concerts for all different types of awareness. From mesothelioma motorcycle runs, job awareness for the U.S. veterans, life care centers for the aging, to even a prison. They are in fact a flower of light in a field of darkness.
