ReaLifeActual of Fort Collins, CO, is an “up-and-coming” 6 piece instrumental jam band that implores electro dance beats to progressive rock. The result of RLA’s converging genres is a heady trance jam that transports audiences into a psychedelic accelerated landscape.
Rodrigo Sanchez and Gabriela Quintero met as teenagers in Mexico City. Both heavy metal fanatics at that time, they decided to combine their talents in the metal group Tierra Acida. They recorded an album, but wouldn’t sign the record contract. Instead, they decided to concentrate on learning more guitar styles. They survived by teaching lessons during the day and playing bossa novas in hotel bars at night. One day, they decided to take a step in the unknown and traveled to Europe.
