French Horn Rebellion is a collection of sounds and influences in its wide appeal to a variety of groups. FHR fans are brought together by hooky, fun energy and a positive outlook. As big beats attract partying girls and boys, alternative and indie vibes bring droves of hipsters to the party while the band's quirky, and engaging musical elements attract band geeks and marching punks the world over!
Robert, former member of the Chicago Civic Orchestra, and David, an ex-producer of critic darlings MGMT, combine their brotherly talents and vision to make a truly unique amalgam of sounds they've dubbed 'Next Jack Swing.' Fans can call it French Horn Rebellion's special brand of indie-funk with a reverent pop twist.
Come over and party with us and B.Y.O.I. (bring your own instrument)!
Over the years, French Horn Rebellion's emotive pop singles, illustrious dance e.p.'s, well-tailored remixes and an acclaimed album debut, "The Infinite Music of French Horn Rebellion" have received high praise, acclaim and obsession by such media hubs as: The Huffington Post, Billboard, BBC Radio 1, Entertainment Weekly, Jay Z's Life & Times, Interview Magazine, Spotify, Rolling Stone, VIBE, The Guardian, Bust, Mashable, Thissongissick, NY Daily News, VEVO, Q Magazine and Time Out.

With their new record label, Ensemble Records enjoying a glorious bow this introducing Slaptop's smash "Sunrise" (in conjunction with +1 Records) and a busy Williamsburg-based production compound and studio, YouTooCanWoo, churning out the hits, The Perlick-Molinari brothers of French Horn Rebellion are living their D.I.Y. manifesto to the fullest, noting the best is yet to come. It's clear that the group's engaging performer, A&R chief and French Horn-toting label honcho, Robert - partnered with David, the introspective studio geek, world domination enthusiast and production perfectionist, are gearing up for an international rebel party coup. FHR know You're All Right and want to assist with a bit of exclusive party intel. David knowingly states, "A way the world can feel worthwhile is for its individuals to lead the charge. We are all worth the time and energy. This dance party is where we celebrate!"
Robert breaks it down even further, "I equate orchestra players with middle-class workers. You play the music on the page, listen to the conductor and go home. And I think orchestra players aren't appreciated, much like today's working man. That's why it's a rebellion: working guys, rebel!”
