Q: Rachel Koontz has an AMAZING voice! What part of performing does Rachel enjoy the most?
A: Hello Jason and thanks for the question. The best part of performing for me is the connection to the audience, venue, and my fellow bandmates. There is no better feeling to me then when I am on stage. It is an outer body experience where I find myself floating above the fog of lights and sound in a state of complete peace. There is a spiritual connection and excitement in the air that is unexplainable and I really never know what to expect or how my body will react and move from show to show.
