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) 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.
