Canadian rock legend Dave Rave
has not performed in Minneapolis for a while – he and his Minnesota band The Governors
have been greatly missed for their high energy, chaotic rock and roll shows with.
“Raver” has recorded and released 6 albums of “tough pop” with Minnesota music luminaries Craig Teiken, Terry Isachsen, Rich Mattson, Chad Mittag, Tom Cook, and a plethora of others. When not writing and recording here in the Gopher State, Dave resides in Hamilton, Ontario where he fronts the popular rock group Teenage Head along with several other projects – The Shakers and Dave Rave & The Second Responders among them.
As a Minnesota music fan, singer/bassist and live sound engineer, Scott Allen has had a unique exposure to Minnesota music and the artists performing it. On the bass and backing vocals, he’s played in bands with songwriters like Tom Mason, Mark Hasbrouch (Surahoolies), Phil Solem (The Rembrandts), Aaron Seymour (The Delilahs), Melvin James (Planet Melvin) and countless others. Scott has also done much fill in work on bass as well, including groups like The Billys, Tim Mahoney, Scott Laurent Band, Rhythm Jones, The Phones, Mile One, The Kurt Neumann Band (BoDeans), Test Site 67, Rex Daisy’s alter-ego band Two Tickets To Paradise, and Patrik Tanner & The Faraway Men.
Currently, in addition to recently releasing an album of original music, Scott sings lead vocals for a popular local Talking Heads tribute Slippery People and 70s throwback group Band On The Rocks.
