"She plays the hell out of the guitar" - Matt "Guitar
Rachelle earned a bachelors degree in classical guitar performance from the University of Miami. With all of these influences, Rachelle developed her own unique finger-style approach to blues rhythm and lead guitar playing. After college, Rachelle became known in Miami for her unique style and was cast in an indie movie, taught guitar for National
Guitar Workshop, and worked on developing guitar methodology.
Her style eventually brought her to the attention of other blues artists. She worked with and toured as a guitarist with artists like Super Chikan, Albert Castiglia, Grady Champion
and Ray Drew. After honing her skills as a side-woman, Rachelle stepped out on her own to front her own band. Since then, Rachelle has played around the world and she continues to grace the stage as one of the blues' most original performers.
Rachelle's band features AJ Kelly
(bass), Raul Valdes (drums), Allen Paul (piano), and special guests. The Funky Biscuit is at 303 SE Mizner Blvd #59, Boca Raton, FL. Reserved seat tickets are $10-$20; General admission $15 the day of the show. Visit funkybiscuit.com or call 561-212-7115.
