Trampled Under Foot
Trampled Under Foot
Siblings Danielle and Nick Schnebelen have a life-long connection with the blues. Growing up in Kansas City, MO, they soaked up the music of their parents, who were active in the thriving blues scene. Trampled Under Foot was originally formed as a family band consisting of Danielle, Nick and Kris Schnebelen. The trio headed to Memphis in 2008 for the IBC and walked away from the competition with First Place honors. Riding the wave of support following the IBC, Trampled Under Foot was ready to take their style of power blues/rock to audiences around the world. After a series of headlining tours and stand out performances at blues festivals across the globe, TUF earned the reputation as one of the hottest bands on the blues circuit.

While watching their fan base grow world-wide, the trio released multiple CDs and DVDs under their own label, TUF Records, including the highly acclaimed 2011 album Wrong Side of the Blues. The success of that album caught the attention of many throughout the music industry and in 2013 the band partnered with Concord Music Group to release their major label debut, Badlands. Hailed by fans and critics alike, Badlands revealed a musical sophistication well beyond the band’s years and provided further proof that Trampled Under Foot was the real deal.

In 2014, after brother Kris announced he was leaving the band, Danielle and Nick solicited long-time friend and fellow KC musician Jan Faircloth to join them on drums. Jan brought with him years of experience as a musician in the Kansas City blues scene and provided a fresh take on the band’s trademark sound. The addition of Jan inspired TUF to make other changes in their line up and the group added keyboardist Mike “Shinetop” Sedovic as an official member, turning the trio in to a 4-piece powerhouse blues band and adding a new dimension to their already stellar live performance.
Rachelle Coba Band
Rachelle Coba mastered the finger-picking techniques of classical guitar while earning a Bachelor of Music degree at the University of Miami. She then chose to apply that facility to electric guitar and began playing the blues. Consequently, Rachelle has developed her own, unique approach to blues guitar lead and rhythm playing.

Rachelle's new style and musicianship brought her to the attention of notable blues circuit artists, and resulted in extended national engagements with Grady Champion, Junior Drinkwater, Super Chikan, and Ray Drew. Additionally, she has toured as an opener for blues/rock legend Johnny Winter and Coco Montoya. She has also played the blues and opened for countless artists including A.C. Reed, Buddy Guy, Junior Wells, and Dr. John. Rachelle has appeared at the Chicago Blues Festival; BB King's and The Bottom Line in NYC; The Roxy in LA; The Fillmore in Denver; The Sound Advice Blues Festival; Kerrville Folk Festival; and numerous House Of Blues venues. (Rachelle also performed her 'blues' arrangement of the National Anthem at a Miami Heat basketball game!)

Currently, Rachelle resides in Wichita, KS, where she continues to perform. She has developed a strong blues solo act and formed her own Rachelle Coba Band.

In addition to playing, Rachelle has kept up her impressive career as a guitar instructor. Not only did she coach a long list of private students while in Miami, Chicago and Wichita, but has taught for the last three years at Wichita's renowned Camp Allegro. She preceded this as an instructor for the National Guitar Workshops 'DayJams' camp in the Washington D.C. area. She is currently taking the lead with Arts Partners and the Wichita Blues Society to bring a 'Blues In The Schools' program to the Wichita area.
