Reverend Raven and The Chain Smokin Altar Boys Concert
By Mitzi Beliveau
It was in the fall at Wilebski’s Blues Saloon that I first heard Revered Raven and The Chain Smokin Altar Boys. I knew I was in for a treat when over 90 of my dancers showed up and a record number of people pack in Wilebski’s Blues Saloon. People packed the door before the place open!
I introduced my self to the band and found all four men to be amicable and fun to be around. There were at least six local harmonica players that came to hear Andy play the harmonica that night. Each and everyone one said Andy is the best they have heard. I agree Andy is the best. I would rate him as number one in the nation. Yes, he is that good!
Next is the drummer Craig! Influential drummer and did a great job on a solo part. I would rate him the top five drummers of the USA. Indeed, another powerful and talented person in the band. Craig wowed the listeners and dancers that night.
The bass player was right on and played not only the bass but the rhythm as well. Every strum and every note were right on; perfection! P. T. as his friends called him is another all-star band member. I rate him also in the top five, as a bass player in the USA. I’ll say again, perfection, perfection, perfection!
Last is the famous singer and guitarist Reverend Raven! Powerful and versatile voice. Pleasing to the senses both is singing and his guitar music. Reverend Raven played two guitars that night; each with their own sound and smooth perfection. The Reverend really knows how to work up the crowd and please the dancers and listeners alike.
I would rate this band in the top three in the nation as local bands that travel. I see them traveling all over the world shortly. This band has the best of the best artists and singers. They won my heart! I’ll see them again and will try to get them booked at Wilebski’s Blues Saloon again, soon!
