2013-Logo-v16Give it up for this week’s KABW, a five-piece, mind thumping rock band from Santa Barbara, California — Winchester Rebels.

Formed in 2009 by motorcycle shop co-workers Nick Hunt (vox) and John Livergood (bass), the band quickly filled out its lineup with the addition of fellow motorcycle rider Nick Fitzgerald (guitar) and his childhood friends James Longoria (guitar) and Barry Carter (drums).

Their debut album ‘Three Sheets to the Wind‘ released in late 2011 and was nominated for ‘Best Rock Album’ and ‘Male Vocalist of the Year’ by the Los Angeles Music Awards in 2012.
