A  dutch Ozzy Osbourne tribute band that plays mainly the early Ozzy Osbourne & Black Sabbath stuff. We stay true to the original songs but of course we add our own vibe!

After all, we are Rebels of Ozz!


Wouldn't you like to know... Rebels play a metal mosaic of the classics, but we also let you hear the forgotten Ozzy gems you normally will never hear but will appreciate. You will be suprised of the show we have lined up for you.

So you really need to come and see the Rebels live for the best Ozzy vibe around....

All aboard, hahahaha! 


Edwin Kraft

Lead Guitarizzt

If ADHD is reinvented, it will be named Edwin Kraft van Ermel. The lead guitarist (and backing vocals) bounces on stage for 24 hours... yes, you read that correctly, even after 1.5 hours of performance, he cannot be kept off stage. He is a virtuoso, entertainer and above all very cuddly at the same time (... according to JJ Musichouse). Edwin is fused with his guitar. Born in the 70ties and since he was 2 years old he has had a preference for loud guitars and a passion for Gibsons.Eddie Van Halen, Ace Frehley and Zakk Wylde, among others, are his great examples. Edwin is one of the founders of Ammocave, recorded with Computer Mind and played with top-musicians like, Arjen Lucassen, Dany Lademacher, Boris vd Lek, Damian Wilson and many more.

As a bass player I'm at home in this band.

For me it's a challenge and honour to support these three experienced metal beasts, giving the low end tones a boost and enjoying the powerful, sometimes underrated bass lines of Ozzy's bass players like Bob Daisley, Geezer Butler and Rudy Sarzo!
