Happy Thanksgiving everyone.  Good to be home for the holiday.  Our tour to Florida was excellent.  Sold out a few rooms (thanks to Kris at Recordevents.com) and made some new friends.  We got to play and hang out with our friend Madison Slim at the Blue Rooster and hang out with Doug Deming and Andrew Gohman who sat in with Andy and Craig. 

Twentieth Anniversary CD "My Life"

Our new studio CD celebrates 20 years as a working road band.  We've played every tavern, gin joint and cool club in the Mid-West and Florida and enjoyed just about most of them.  This is our eighth CD.  It's a compilation of all of our originals from all 4 studio CDs, remixed or recorded as a new version with a new lineup.  It features Cadillac Pete Rahn, Madison Slim, Benny Rickun, Big Al Groth, Mickey Larson, Danny Moore and Westside Andy.  It's at the factory now and if you order online here by sending $15 to Nevermore Records, 3851 E. Holmes Avenue, Cudahy, WI 53110 we'll pay the shipping.   It'll be online and on the air in December 2018.  Thanks

 

Virgin Islands #2 2018

Craig and I leave for St Croix on December 5th to meet up with the Wizard himself Gary Zappa to play all our usual haunts on St Croix.  We were going to cancel but everyone called and said they wanted music.  Gary has his own generator too lol.  Come to the islands, check our schedule.  We'll book more dates as they show up.

Come To Jamaica with the Jimmys

Come to Jamaica with Westside Andy, myself and the Jimmys, February 25th - March 4th, at Paradise Cove Resort, Runaway Bay, Jamaica.  A week of blues and debauchery on the beaches of Jamaica. What better way to escape another cold bitter Wisconsin winter (boy I'm laying it on eh?)  Only 8 seats left.  So don't sit on the fence, make the call to Amy and tell her you're going to the Jamaica with the Jimmys.

Our three week road trip was excellent. We started at the House of Blues in Chicago, headed to the Slippery Noodle in Indianapolis to play to a packed house and then jumped down to Florida to play four shows at clubs that were packed with dancers waiting to see us.

Brian Lee sat in at The Blue Rooster and received a well deserved standing ovation. What a treat to hang with my old friend.  He's coming up to Wisconsin this summer to celebrate his 60th year in the music business.

The Legendary Blues Cruise was a blast. Latimore, Elvin Bishop, Ronnie Baker Brooks, Ronnie Hicks, Mike Wheeler, Toronzo Cannon, Tommy Castro, Shinetop, Scottie Miller, Danielle Nicole, Tab Benoit, Mr Sipp, Eddie Cotton and so many more tore it up.  

We had the honor of hosting the Pro - Jam the second night on the pool deck at midnight and you can see the result on our video page or go to: LRBC 26 and check it out.  Big thanks to Jimmy Voegeli, Westside Andy, Bobby Sellers Jr, and PT Pedersen for laying it down all week long.

We have finally begun work on our 20th anniversary CD. The cd is a compilation of our original songs, remastered, mixed and sometimes re-imagined. With some special guests and former Chain Smoking Altar Boys. I was in the studio yesterday and finished up 3 songs with Bill Stace from Walls Have Ears Studio. You can help us fund it by going to http://www.gofundme.com/ReverendRaven20th.  

Different perks for every funding level and an opportunity to be part of the band's history.

Big Al is joining us for our Canadian Tour via Minnesota starting Wednesday April 16th at Legend's in St Cloud, MN.  Thursday we're at The Forada Bar & Grill in Forada, MN and Friday play our new home in the Twin Cities The Minnesota Music Cafe.  Friday the 19th we head to Minot ND to play for our friends at the Moose Lodge.

We jump into Canada on the 20th and start out one week run at the Blues on Whyte in Edmonton, Alberta.  Pass the word and hope to see you at a gig.
