THE REKKENING is a “FEROCIOUS” female fronted quartet. Their music is full of ATTITUDE and ABRASIVNESS with an “in-your-face' old school sound.
THE REKKENING is definitely a think outside the box type band.
Their versatility and style cannot be put into a specific genre.
THE REKKENING's true staying power is in every song being different and keeping everything real and raw !! THE REKKENING is the ultimate Party, Head Bang and Dance Band ! All wrapped up into one EXPLOSIVE package !

in 2008. Trasee brings all of her experiences to the table to breathe life
into and engage the audience .

Quote- (Trasee) My life has not been a neat little box with a bow on it , so why
would my music?
