Handsome Dave & The Ravens have been a stalwart presence on Chicagoland's bar, club, and festival stages. They are dedicated to preserving the integrity of raw rock and blues in the tradition of legendary power trios such as the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Cream, Mountain, ZZ Top, and Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble. With a focus on tight rhythms and muscular guitar riffs, they unleash a visceral assault on the senses. Their music has heart and soul, but no shortage of power and grit. It truly is blues rock at its finest!
