May 5: Rachelle Coba
With riffs that can bring down the house and a voice to shake hearts, Rachelle Coba is a torrential force that sweeps away every audience. With her expertise in string instruments, Rachelle works magic to create amazing cover arrangements—acoustic or electric. In this role she played countless festivals including the Chicago Bluesfest and the Kerrville Texas Folk Festival, and opened for numerous acts like Johnny Winter, Coco Montoya and Koko Taylor. Miami is where she would make a life changing encounter with blues legend Buddy Guy. Since then, she has toured and performed with Super Chikan, Albert Castigila, Grady Champion, and Ray Drew. Featured also are Allen Paul, keys; A.J. Kelly, bass; and Raul Valdes, drums.
Tables are set up and food and drinks are available from local restaurants. Music courtesy of KCC Productions.
