They later recorded Keith’s album “Down the Line” an acoustic album. Influences are: The Delta Blues, Gospel Music and Motown. Bass influences are James Jamerson, Donald Duck Dunn, Oteil Burbridge, Willie Weeks ... Just to name a few. Rachelle Coba bio: Rachelle has consistently brought the house down to cheering audiences around the world by bringing her own high-powered brand of Blues; from soul, to country, to uptown, onto the stage. Rachelle’s take on the blues is unexpectedly honest and mesmerizing. With her debut CD, critically acclaimed solo release now available, she has recently relocated back to South Florida from Wichita, Kansas. Rachelle has a burning new trio and she is playing to steadily growing audiences in the US and abroad. Rachelle Coba was born in Fon du Lac, Wisconsin to an American mother from Kansas and a Cuban father born in Havana. Music was a constant presence in the house, loved and danced to by everyone, everyday. Rachelle carried that love of music into learning violin in school and eventually to studying the guitar. She got her first guitar on her 15th birthday and her mom took her to see Lonnie Mack and Stevie Ray Vaughan that same night. Rachelle went on to college to study violin. It was about this time she met Buddy Guy. They became friends, so Rachelle decided she better learn the blues. While going to blues shows, jamming at Miami’s famous Tobacco Road on Monday nights, and sitting in with numerous blues legends (including Buddy), Rachelle switched instruments from violin to guitar in college and earned a bachelors degree in classical guitar performance from the University of Miami, Florida. With all of these influences, Rachelle developed her own unique finger-style approach to blues rhythm and lead guitar playing. Her style eventually brought her to the attention of many blues artists. She has worked with and toured as a guitarist with artists like Super Chikan, Albert Castiglia, Grady Champion and Ray Drew. In this role, she played countless clubs and festivals, including: Buddy Guy’s Legends, B.B. Kings in NYC, and the Chicago Blues Festival. She was also a part of extended tours with artists Johnny Winter and Coco Montoya. After years of this experience, Rachelle decided to play her own style and front her own band. Since then, she has represented the Wichita and Topeka, Kansas Blues Societies in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee both as a solo act and with a band becoming a semi-finalist in 2013. More recently, she has toured extensively in Queensland Australia, the United States Midwest and the Mississippi Delta and she has been a surprise special guest on the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise. Rachelle has played many festivals including Juke Joint, King Biscuit, Riverwalk, and Chautauqua Hills Blues Festivals. She was a featured performer in the Blessissippi Blues film in Clarksdale, Mississippi. She has opened for and jammed with notable blues artists including: Dr. John, A.C. Reed,The Cate Brothers, Karen Lovely, Candye Kane, Earl and Them, Hadden Sayers, Hamilton Loomis, Maria Muldaur, Marcia Ball, TUF, Bobby Keys, Eddie Turner, Iko-Iko, Joe Pitts, Albert Castiglia and Stacy Mitchheart. Richie Schmidt bio: Richie Schmidt was born and raised in NYC, and was surrounded by musical influences from an early age. Singing in his church's “cherub” choir at age 5, he would follow on to the junior and adult choirs. From grade 2 to 6 he took violin lessons (at public school!). And when the church began to experiment with the new “folk” music style that was becoming popular, he began playing guitar. Some formal lessons followed at the local music store, and the guitar became a constant companion. With his transistor radio (tuned to WABC), he began listening and learning the songs of the time. A friendly competition with his sister Debbie (also a singer/guitarist) provided a “look what I just learned” leap-frog game of sharing songs and styles, accelerating his knowledge of the instrument, as well as his familiarity with the variety of 60s and 70s pop music. Other influences would add some spice to his skills. Under the direction of musicologist Peter Griggs he studied East Indian music and performed as a percussionist with the NYC Gamelan. A high school friend, Christopher Thall, was a prodigious talent who demonstrated learning techniques that opened up many avenues to musical approach and understanding. And Richie's fascination with musical instruments led him to acquire abilities on piano and flute, as well as banjo, mandolin and other stringed instruments. He began performing in rock cover bands in 1976, playing classic rock favorites at parties and high schools and eventually in clubs all around NYC and Long Island. In 1983, he fully dedicated himself to a life of music, leaving his home to join a traveling act. Early in these travels he met keyboardist Tess Smith. The two traveled with the touring band for a number of years, eventually settling in South Florida. In 1990 they were married, and began performing as the duo “Twocan Blue”. In 2002 Richie was invited to fill the guitar role for “The Fabulous Fleetwood's” the longest running “rockin' blues” band in the region. In 2008, he was the musical director for the stage re-creation of the concert movie “The Last Waltz”, and also performed in the role of guitarist Robbie Robertson . Continuing on a busy schedule of performances, he's frequently called on as a solo artist and side man, performing on stages large & small, with local musician friends, as well as many noteworthy artists.
