For a few months in the late 1980's, "The Raves" made a name for themselves as an original band playing small clubs in the Spokane area like "1-2-3 Arts", "The Big Dipper", "Gatsby's" and more. While the band was only together for a short time, they were able to create a buzz around town and even get some airplay on local radio.
