Beamer Wigley has had some exciting things happen in his career since his last appearance on Rivenmaster’s Place on July of 2013. In addition to his regular performance schedule throughout his home province of British Colombia, Beamer won first place in the ‘Best Buy Demo Wars’ for single vocalist.   Then last year in September just following his stage role performance in Whistle Down the Wind’, he was cast as ‘Gavroche’ in the Soundstage production of the musical “Les Miserables” which opened last January.

Since Beamer’s introduction on this website, Beamer has really found his place as a young actor. His performance in “Les Miserables” has given him not only greater confidence, but aided in capturing the attention of many professionals in the acting, film and media arena.

In fact last October, Beamer made his first ever trip to Nashville TN, where he attended a music workshop and then performed in some local venues, including the renowned “Two Old Hippies” where he got to meet a V.P. from Big Machine Records, a real thrill for him!

Then in December he gained a lot of respect from the audience while performing outside for a Christmas light-up event. Although the weather turned extremely cold, Beamer did his full half hour set, persevering even when his fingers became too numb to chord his guitar. He handled it just like a pro switching to singing acapella for some songs, while allowing his hands to warm up enough to play again. The crowd appreciated his gutsy effort!

REBELMANN® Chicago’s Rock‘n Roll‘n Mann-iacs

rebelmann registered logo 495rm

REBELMANN® is exactly what the trademarked name implies:  REBEL – MANN. The teen rock band sensation from Chicago consists of siblings Clayton Mann, and his twin brothers, Johnathon and Bryce Mann. Music is obviously what they do.  Schooled in the arts from a very early age; the Mann brothers have combined training on piano, viola, cello, bass guitar, guitar, and drums.  All three brothers played in their school’s orchestra, and remain schooled in music today. It is with this desire to play “real” music, that the Mann brothers chose the name of their band – REBELMANN® . The name “REBEL” because they play “real” music, no computers, no backing tracks, just live music; and “MANN,” well because that is obvious.  In addition to their band name, all 3 brothers helped design their trademarked crossed-guitar logo.  With the clashing lefty and righty guitars, the broken strings represent the brother’s hard-hitting sound of rock ‘n roll.  Johnathon added the ‘electrical sparks’ around the guitars, Clayton the barbed wire, and Bryce the wings as a nod to the history of rock ‘n roll.

REBELMANN
(REBELMANN) is: Clayton , Johnathon & Bryce Mann

The Mann’s are serious about music. Their resume validates it: The famed Whisky-a-Go-Go on the Hollywood Sunset Strip, not once, but twice; called back by Whisky management to open for LA Guns New Year’s Eve. That was when Clayton was just 12 years old. Second place – on a coin toss – at the Chicago Hard Rock Battle of the Bands; a 3 AM encore decided that one! (Yes, 3 AM, at just 13 and 16 years old.) Nashville has been played, Dallas too; not to mention the MGM Grand, Las Vegas. Currently, REBELMANN® is a touring artist on the anti-bullying Teen Nation Tour, set to rock NASCAR’s Charlotte Motor Speedway this October. They simply call it, “on the grind.”

And then there’s Gene Simmons, the iconic bassist and founder of the megaband, KISS.   Would you ever believe a headline to read like this?

“Gene Simmons Blown Away By 13-Year-Old Guitarist”

Yes, Clayton Mann pulled that one off too!

It’s all good with Mr. Simmons. REBELMANN® attended the Rock Fantasy Camp in Las Vegas where they met the iconic bassist, along with former KISS guitarist, Bruce Kulick, who now mentors the young band of brothers.
