Rachel & The Ruckus was born in the Rocky Mountains of Boulder, Colorado, bringing a blend of killer Pop music infused with Blues & Rock to the Colorado music scene. Singer/keyboard player Rachel Alena and guitarist Alec Sims met in 2010 while sharing the stage with the popular Front Range band Girls On Top!, and formed the band shortly thereafter. Drummer Kyle Comerford joined in 2012. Bassist Vince Carmellini (a.k.a Big Nasty) and sax player/flutist Max Reed joined to round out the group in 2013.
This adult album alternative band has since earned lots of positive attention from music lovers, bringing their vast musical influences and experience together to create compelling Pop music with Soul. It’s the sound of the blend of powerful lyrics, Rachel’s enchanting voice and a band with rocking, in-the-pocket grooves.
