Biography

Meet Nila Minnerok and Clementine, an 11-year connected-at-the-hip rhythm section available for touring situations.

Nila and Clem's rhythmic conversation started in the New York City metal band BOTTOM. An 11-month, 320 shows tour and 8 years of 15-20 trips around the US, and travels through Europe honed their chops and developed an unbelievable intuition with each other, as well as a powerful stage presence that has served every project they've been in since.

They are currently the rhythm section for the San Francisco-based Led Zeppelin band, Zepparella.

Between the two of them, their musical tastes are incredibly diverse. On stage, they meet up with heavy-handed and melodic playing, grounded in heavy rock, funk and metal. While their aim is to affect the audience with the power a great rhythm section can convey, they have a strong sense of the Song, and play tastefully and with a desire to create a strong bed for the vocal melody to take center stage. Both songwriters in their own right, they have a melodic, pop sensibility that translates to their playing, and take direction from bandleaders easily and with the common goal to make the song what the leader envisions.

The girls are laid-back, low maintenance and with a constant professional yet fun attitude. Step up your tour with a rhythm section you can count on.
