Rhonda is new on the local scene in San Jose. She is fresh and new to the career of a performer; however, she has had a very long amateur career. After winning a local singing contest, Bay Area Idol 2012, she joined a couple local bands, California Blues Machine and then Who Does That, where she met Warren Anthony. Rhonda and Warren Anthony - bassist, together formed Cougar Unleashed in May 2013 accompanied by different local guitarists and drummers.
Welcoming in 2016, Rhonda is available to book as a solo artist or with her own band, Cougar Unleashed all over the San Francisco Bay Area. She's performed at local fundraisers, summer festivals, restaurant, and clubs in San Jose, San Francisco, Chicago, and Los Angeles over the past year.
A few of her notable venues-
-Doc's Lab, New Year's Eve Ball
-Kingston Mines, Chicago
-Corbin Bowl, Los Angeles
- East Palo Alto Blues Fundraiser
- Collard Greens Festival
- East Palo Alto Blues Festival
- Angelicas Bistro
- Neto's Bar and Grill
- Lillie Mae's Bistro
in addition to local bars:

Rhonda worked on a couple private projects as well during the year. Recently, her vocals were recorded for the commercial for Via Marte Outono/Invierno 2014 campaign.
Rhonda is available for new projects and opportunities in addition to developing and promoting Cougar Unleashed. Although Warren Anthony remains attached to the project, when time allows; Rhonda keeps the band moving forward. One step in this direction is that Cougar Unleashed will be competing in the Silicon Valley Blues Society's Band Challenge 2014.
