They will be playing Arts, Beats, & Eats in Royal Oak on Saturday, Sept. 1 at 8 P.M. on the Budweiser Rock Stage.
MCB caught up with Broadzilla's guitarist/vocalist Rachel May to discuss the live reunion.
It was December of 2009. We opened for Lez Zeppelin at the Magic Bag. It was a really great show for us and one that we could rest on for a bit. We had been together 13 years at that point and had run ourselves ragged with keeping up with day jobs, a hectic touring schedule and everything that goes into running a band/business. It was just time for us to take a step back. We never considered breaking up the band, we just needed a break and we didn’t really know how long that break would be. As it turns out, it’s been almost three years.
Well, I think at first we all just enjoyed the break for a bit. Eventually Kim and I began playing in other bands around town. I enjoyed the challenges of playing with different musicians and getting outside of the Broadzilla wheelhouse for a moment. I definitely learned a lot musically by having to push myself to keep up with new players. And leisurely I’ve enjoyed having time to get outdoors and live a little, Kim’s involved with the Detroit Derby Girls and Angie started her own pet taxi business.
How did this reunion show come about and can we expect more?
