Rising Regina officially began in the summer of 2007 as a sister act of Jessica and Kiki Young. Later that year, accomplished multi-instrumentalist Rich Kulbacki joined the creative duo to complete the core of the band. From 2008-2010 the band toured as a five piece with various members filling out the rhythm section and in late summer of 2010 found themselves without a drummer or bassist. In the winter of 2010 the band added well known Pittsburgh talent Eric George as their Percussionist, and, after almost three years away from the band, original bass player Dave Traugh joined back up in June of 2013. Now, after already playing over 220 shows together, the band is complete for the long haul and once again ready to hit the road for extended touring.
