Everything That Was
In October of 2002, after getting a great jump-start on the Denver music scene, doctors found a cyst on one of Rachel's vocal cords. A heart-wrenching ordeal, the band was forced to go on hiatus until the cyst was removed. Two full years later, Rachel's Playpen returned to a packed house at a popular Denver venue in February of 2004. The show celebrated Rachel's comeback, along with the release of her band's first CD. The band has been playing all over the Rocky Mountain region ever since. Previously, Rachel was in the popular Athens/Atlanta duo, rachel & andy. That CD can be found here on CD Baby, as well. Rachel's Playpen features Rachel on acoustic guitar and lead vocals, Dan Garcia on lead guitar, Bradley Weaver on bass and David Derby on drums. All band members sing and have a hand in the writing and arranging of playpen songs.
