'When we were little kids, our grandfather would always talk to us about “leaving water for our kids,” and encourage us to conserve water in simple ways like taking quick showers, turning off faucets, etc. Every time I think about water, I think of him. His advice really makes us think about the importance of water and need to “leave water for our kids” and future generations. Water is such a precious resource. Easy little things that we could change about our lives can help out huge if we all took steps to do them together.

We love that Rock The Green helps educate people about the environment and ways to be more sustainable.' -Gaby

#RockTheStream: Get to know REYNA & Girls Rock MKE

Before they were churning out glossy ‘80s-inspired electro-pop as REYNA, Milwaukee sisters Vic Banuelos and Gabby Banuelos, formerly known as the duo Vic and Gab, were on the indie-pop fast track as one of the city’s fastest-rising independent bands. In 2015, they decided that it was finally time to graduate from their signature Vic and Gab sound and, the following year, Reyna — a play on the Spanish word for queen — was born, ushering in a new (and poppier) era for the siblings under a regal name that “represented their culture, where they come from and, of course, powerful women.” 

- Billboard, Erica Russel

 

Since taking on their new moniker the sisters have collaborated with producers Drew Pearson (Kesha, Lights,) Simon Oscroft (The Aces) John Feldman and Derek Furhmann. REYNA has independently released a series of singles which have so far garnered over 4.5 million combined streams on Spotify to date. Featured on Spotify playlists including New Music Friday, Indie Pop!, Young and Free and Feel Good Indie Rock. Opening for the likes of CHVRCHES, Death Cab for Cutie, The Naked and Famous, and have played festivals like Summerfest, SXSW, Lincoln Calling, Middle of the Map and Underground Music Showcase. 

 

Last year, REYNA was named the Project: Aloft Star winner, beating out over 2,000 bands nationwide. The prize includes a national/international tour with Aloft Hotels and a single track deal with Capitol Records.
