The story behind the ReWLeTTeS is one of divine intervention.
All these talented ladies play in multiple projects.
There was a gig that Rew was organizing the entire night because her Manta Ray Records head honcho wanted to come play a gig in NYC with his band, which we try to do at least annually.
Well, this gig alone kept getting postponed.
First it was for November, then December, then January and then finally it was set for APRiL 2019!!! OK date set!!
So Rew was going to play with one of her concoctions of her band and slowly every band member was unavailable!
Ok, she was going to be solo, and then decided F it, I’ll just host the night.
Well, I believe Anne was booked to play that night in one of her projects and she said “I’ll play with you!”..
Rew started thinking hmmmmm..
Tami had done many gigs with Rew over the years so Rew reached out to see if she was available. that night.... drum roll...’YES” she said!!
Now Maya was a friend of Rew who after seeing her perform said she would want to play together some day... well there is an incredible twisting of magical forces that unbeknownst to Rew and Maya when they met how Tami and Maya were connected and it all came through Rew!
If you can follow that, good for you!!
Soooo Rew asked Maya if she was available that night to play and BBAM she said “YESSS”... Ok we had a gig!!
We prepared a few rehearsals at Rew’s apartment and were ready to play!
We actually were the ‘Rewdettes!
Well, the gig was at our beloved Ottos Shrunken Head, and after our amazing over the top electric set, Steve, the owner of Ottos said , “Wow I absolutely LOVE the REWLETTES!!!” we were like, OMG that name is so much better!!!!! So tada... the Rewlettes were born!!!!!
Our first adventure on the road after a bunch of NYC shows was off to Manta Ray Records in Baltimore to record ‘To Sir With Love’ as a request from our beloved Zest in Canada.
Mission. accomplished with lots of stories in the fabric of that quilt to last a lifetime...
And now our video is in pre production, another can of worms that will surely all unfold into butterflies...
