MODERN DAY VERSION OF ROMEO & JULIET IS THE NEWEST RELEASE FROM
BLUES/ROCK BAND ‘RACHEL & THE RUCKUS’
Juliet’s point of view
The story of Romeo & Juliet can now be heard in a more musical form. Boulder, Colorado based blues/rock band Rachel & the Ruckus gives Shakespeare a modern day twist, from Juliet’s perspective.
In addition to releasing Romeo’s partner video on RachelandtheRuckus.com and Youtube, the band performs Romeo regularly at their live performances. The release of the song Romeo comes as schools recognize the importance of exposure to arts in education.
”The lyrics of the song help to provide an easy way to grasp the general story,” says front person, Rachel Alena. “While writing them, I was thinking of how it would feel to be Juliet, in today’s world.”
Rachel & the Ruckus came to life in 2012, when guitar player Alec Sims and singer/keyboardist Rachel Alena met while playing together in a Front Range R&B band. Drummer Kyle Comerford and bassist Vince Carmellini joined shortly after. Since then, the band has played live shows all across Colorado and has a busy show schedule planned for the future including headlining at the Colorado State Fair.
