Please join me in seeing my favorite band from where I grew up, Milwaukee, WI. They are by far one of the best blues bands I've ever heard! You won't be disappointed!!!
They will be playing from 5-9, so I'll be there no later then 4:15. Looks like Ace's has good food and good prices so I plan on eating dinner there. If anyone wants to eat dinner there and/or have me save them a seat, please put that in the comments section. By the way, it's a NON-SMOKING show. Please read the bio below to learn more about Reverend Raven. Thanks! :)
