Meet the band

Lexi Haas


Alexis Haas has been playing instruments since she was 6 years old. At the age of 7, she was introduced to the ukulele. When she turned 8 years old, she had the honor of being invited to open for the New York Nets’ Basketball team at the Nassau Coliseum playing the national anthem on her ukulele.

Soon after, Lexi transitioned into the guitar, bass, and keyboard. In December, 2020, Lexi took on learning the drums. In the Spring of 2021, Lexi started her own youth rock band, N’Theory, where she frequently rotated amongst all of her instruments during her shows.

 In July, 2022, Lexi came across singer Calliope, seeking a drummer for an upcoming gig, Lexi asked her dad (Jimmy Haas) to reach out and see if she could get an audition. Lexi played her first show with Calliope in August and the rest is history.

 She is super excited to bring her exceptional musical talent as a permanent member of Calliope and looks forward to applying her drumming skills to enhance Calliope’s original material.
