Raven's Keep is a hard-rockin' band with a sound of it's own. Fronted by lead singer and founder Glenda Chambers, with her unique voice and adding in some occasional keys, (influences include Heart, Rush, Led Zeppelin) the band is based around that and the rockin' , melodic riffs of guitar great Kimble Gagos (of Dave Meneketti, Reb Beach, Kee Marcello, Traci Lords influence), and the thundering bass of Tony Stevens (Geezer Butler, Steve Harris, Geddy Lee, & Gene Simmons influences). Tony Stevens is originally from San Diego. After 20+ years in Metro-Detroit he now lives in Columbus, Indiana. Playing the "Originals Only" circuit in Detroit for 10 years, Tony has a No-Non-Sense, Shut-Up And Play attitude that can be seen in his playing. Tony plays Warwick Basses through SWR Amplification. Influences also include Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, and Uriah Heep. Outside interest include riding his motorcycle across the country, running with his huge dogs, and collecting Vintage Basses. (30+ at the moment!) Tony is very happy to be joining Ravens Keep, and looks forward to holding down the Bottom End at a show near you! Completing the line-up is their killer drummer Mike Ryan.
The band released their debut full-length cd entitled "The Keeper" in June 2003. A few of the tracks on the cd, Black Cherry, Pendulum & Unnerved, to name a few have been played on WFBQ Q95 (based in Indianapolis, IN.) and WKLU 101.9 of Brownsburg, IN.
Raven's Keep plays local rock clubs in and around the greater Indianapolis area, has played multiple benefits including one in June 2004 at the Rathskeller (in Indy) to help send the Lawrence Central High School Band to play at the January 2005 Rose Bowl in California, and most recently, in October 2010 at the Long Acre for Pancreatic Cancer research. The band also played in May 2004 for the Mini-Marathon in Indy and have been asked to return the following years. They have opened up for national acts such as the Jackyl, Bullet Boys, Lizzy Borden, and Kiss Army, to name a few. Raven's Keep is currently booking live shows in Indiana and surrounding states, promoting "The Keeper" cd and working on new material for the next cd.
