“RAVENWEST was high energy and related well with our crowd. Their song choices were great and their musical talent had our audience celebrating. The best part was their encore, they continued to play great music past the concert ending time because our crowd wanted more. “
Kelly Jenkins Lees Streer Bar
“I had the distinct pleasure this past weekend of hearing the RAVENWEST perform live AT Cool River Draught in Homer Glen. I had a great time. The Band performed a variety of songs which I liked a lot. Most impressive was the chemistry and the level of energy that made each song memorable. It takes a lot to get me to the dance floor, and yet I kept finding myself on the dance floor. I see big things happening for the RAVENWEST in the very near future.”
Frank Bailey// Homer Glen ill
