“The Rakes” on July 29.

The Rakes are a band of 5 friends who have as much fun perfecting their songs as they do performing them; and it shows. Exceptional vocals are at the forefront with solid backing musicianship that compliments rather than distracts. Covering a diverse selection of genre jumping music a Rakes gig is a guaranteed good time. At their core, The Rakes are a countryish Americana band. But as you will quickly learn they defy the "country" label. Mixing classic rock, a little soul, a dash of blues, a "90's" music and even a little hip hop. The Rakes exhibit broad appeal as they truly play something for just about everyone.
