DANIEL BLUE: MEET ROBBY REBEL >>>

Tacomafilesrobbyrebel Tacomafilesart Robby Rebel wants to change his name, because he is no longer in the band. 

What band? 

The River City Rebels, that's what band.   

Dangerous and covered in tattoos, Robby shoves beer in his pants before heading out to smoke a Camel Light at a house party on South G Street.   

Robby is currently involved in the mystery of the Motopony, a Tacoma local band that has yet to come out of the practice room with anything but a peek at their first album. 

Robby has lived in New York and toured with bands like the Strokes.  He has met John Lennon's son and looks a little like Joey Ramone (hair, height, weight). 

In person, Robby is sensitive and attentive, and his personality reflects the complex and moody guitar riffs that have made him so popular in the music industry in this country. He returned to Tacoma to get his feet back on the ground, high class elites in New York can sometimes cloud your vision and its nice to have a place to come home to.   

I like Robby cause he still gets nervous before he plays the smallest of shows, even though he has performed in front of 10,000 people.  Boyish charms and undeniable cool aside, Robby is a real kid and wont be the type to forget his friends when he is on the cover of Rolling Stone.
