Rehab was an American Southern rock, country, and alternative hip hop band. The band has recorded seven albums, including two each for Epic Records and Universal Republic. They are mainly known for their 2000 hit, "Bartender Song (Sittin' at a Bar)". The group disbanded after a farewell tour in 2014.
Rehab was originally formed as a trio: Denny Campbell (Steaknife), Danny (Boone) Alexander, and Jason Brooks (Brooks Buford). Danny Boone and Steaknife, both from Warner Robins, Georgia, were the rap group "Prime Suspect" Danny Boone and Brooks Buford, both recovering alcoholics and drug addicts. It is a common misbelief that they met at a rehab facility. The trio formed Rehab, literally a product of their namesake. Early on, they released their first album To Whom It May Consume produced by Steaknife and Brooks Buford. Soon after, Epic/Sony offered a record deal. Shortly before the record deal, Steaknife was incarcerated and the group continued on as a duo. Mashing rap with rock, the duo released their major label debut album, Southern Discomfort, in 2000 on the Sony label. Cee-Lo, Goodie Mob, and Cody ChesnuTT were some of the guests on the album, which would spawn the Top 15 modern rock hit "It Don't Matter." Two years were spent on the road supporting the album, including a stint on the Warped Tour, and then the duo splintered.
Boone retained the name and recruited four veteran musicians for a new Rehab. Now a quintet with Boone as the lone singer/rapper--and also using his birth name, Danny Alexander--Rehab signed with Arshid Entertainment and released the ambitious Graffiti the World in 2005. Over the next few years, a cut from their debut album, "Sittin' at a Bar," would turn into a jukebox favorite. The Epic label got wise, re-released their debut album and renamed it Sittin' at a Bar, all without the band's permission. To fight this unauthorized reissue the band re-recorded its now famous drinking song and renamed it "Bartender Song." This version would end up on a 2008 version of Graffiti the World released by the major label Universal. Rehab stuck with Universal for their 2010 album Welcome Home. Which has gained the band more commercial success and a "Whole Different" New Fanbase due to the success of a few singles that as of Jan 2011 are still in the running for top 30 Video countdown on CMT. Their Follow-up titled "Gullible's Travels" was released on Feb 21, 2012 through AVJ Records (a subsidiary label of Average Joe's Entertainment), and they started the tour of the same name on Friday Jan 13th, 2012 to promote the new album. The Single "Waho by the Hoti" (the Waffle House by the hotel) is available now on iTunes. The video for their single "King of Tweakers", which was released on their website in the summer of 2011, premiered on 2-21-2012 with the album release. A video for the next single "Can't Catch Up To You" will be recorded in April. On July 3rd 2013, A Track by Twiztid was Released off their first Mixtape A New Nightmare Entitled Unjust love, Featuring Danny Boone. The band have recently released a new lyrics video for their new song, "Whore". It's expected to be on their new album due later this year.
