RACHELLE RAE

Rachelle Rae


Rachelle's been singing since her earliest memory, changing the words to the songs she had been taught. She grew up attending an acapella singing church, developing a love of harmony & learning the different parts by singing along. Her musical evolution began with bands like ABBA (loved their harmonies), progressed through 'New Wave', the 'Grunge' scene, etc. She went back & started listening to the iconic legends of rock: Heart, Janis, Led Zepp, the Stones, Tina & fell in love with their passion & power. "I knew that's what I wanted to incorporate into my vocals." Rachelle has performed solo, in duets & bands from Oklahoma to Michigan as well as onstage in musicals. Learn more about Rachelle.

Rachelle Rae - Lead Vocalist

Rachelle RaeIn 1985 (just 27 years ago) John and Mary Hagerd gave birth to their long awaited little girl. John and Mary were both huge fans of Meryl Streep, so they named their little bouncing bundle of joy "Meryl". Little did they know the complications this would ultimately cause and the long string of seemingly endless confusion and name changes.

Once little Meryl Hagerd realized that she could sing, she hit the road at age 6 in search of a record deal. Every label was eager to make her a star, but her name was going to be a problem. Attorneys were consulted and a determination was made that a name change would be necessary. Merle started searching for the perfect name. She loved Edie Gorme and dreamed of one day traveling to the planet Mercury. That was enough to go on, so Merly Hagerd became Edie Mercury. (Hindsight is 20/20).

The name changes continued for years... Edie Van Hallin, Mary Kaye, Liza Marie Preslie....until one day she came across the perfect name. One that could NEVER be confused with anyone... not even some short-live afternoon syndicated TV homemaker that might come along. Now, the world will know her simply as Rachelle Rae.

Rachelle Rae & The Banned - Rider

Hiring Rachelle Rae & The BANNED is easy. But sometimes, our clients may overlook a few minor issues that can create a difficult time and a less-than perfect event. Here's a few considerations that may help you plan for a great event.

POWER We're a rock & roll band with a significant amount of gear & equipment. We need a minimum of 40 amps of power across 2 or more circuits. Less than 40 total amps could cause a breaker to blow, which means the guitar solo becomes a guitar "so low" you can't hear it. Ask us about the power requirements in advance so we can help you plan.

STAGE Although a stage is nice, we've played many events both inside and out on decks, patios, pavilions,etc. ONE THING we CANNOT DO is play on the ground or grass directly. Our equipment is electric, and since electricity is always seeking ground, our human bodies (although a great conductor of electricity) do not make a very long lasting conduent Please provide some type of platform that will create a significant barrier between the ground and us. Please ask us about this factor in our performance. We want to provide a shocking performance...without the actual shock.

PERFORMANCE AREA There are 5 performers in Rachelle Rae & THE BANNED. This includes a full drum kit, multiple guitars and amps, keyboards, speakers, etc. Please ask us about the area in which you would like us to perform if it is smaller than 300 sq feet. We can accommodate virtually any request that we know about in advance.

LOAD IN & LOAD OUT Please plan on 2 to 3 hours of setup and testing of our equipment prior to performance. It is best if this is done while providing an additional hour or more before the performance. We will also require about 1 hour to remove our gear.
