DSC_0559Régine had an ear for music since a very young age, but first fell in love with the violin at age 9, when she first began what would become a lifelong passion. She played in orchestras from 10 years old through college, where she graduated Cum Laude from Point Loma Nazarene University with a major in music and minor in pre-therapeutic psychology. Starting her senior year of high school, she became involved in work as a session musician, which quickly turned into performing live shows and touring with bands in high school and beyond. All these experiences led to meeting Jakovich and starting QUEL BORDEL! in early 2013. When she’s not playing with QB!, you can find her teaching violin and piano, performing at weddings, or at a local show supporting the scene.
