RJae Haas- pronounced RJ (Lead guitar & Vocals) a born and raised San Jose native first began playing drums while in 5th grade when music was still in our public schools. RJae found a calling for guitar at the age of 14 and studied in music school for 2 months. Being in a single family household he regularly attended Jubilee Christian Church and was mentored by the Men’s Ministry Group where he performed and played in the men’s church band. Growing up in a family that listened to Santana and various Classic Rock bands Haas on occasion would let the Santana sound show in his playing during rehearsals that would earn him the title at the church as the child prodigy. While attending Evergreen Valley High School RJae formed a band of his own and began performing at fairs, festivals and entered competitions attempting to move up the tough competition ladder of Silicon Valley’s talented performers. Moving into young adult hood Haas has had the honor of sharing the stage on several occasions with West Coast Blues Band of the Year Award Winner and Silicon Valley’s voted Best Blues Band Mr. JC Smith, Bay Area’s number one Elvis impersonator Rick Torres and Bay Area’s dynamic front-man & powerhouse harp player Aki Kumar. RJae has opened shows for Grammy Award Winners and R&B Artists Tony, Toni, Tone, Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks and Los Chicos del 512 Selena Tribute Band!

Juzelie Gomez (Lead and Back-up Vocals) is the bands newest addition. Ms. Gomez a strong female vocalist has been playing the Clarinet since 3rd grade and began singing at age 16.

During the summer of 2015 Gomez met up with RJ thru a mutual friend and expressed her desire to join the band after listening and seeing them live. Juzelie now brings her high energy, great Latin sound and music of the 70’s and 80’s to the stages live with the HAAS band.
