Paul Revere and The Raiders in 1967. Front - Paul Revere, Mike Smith. Center - Jim Valley, Mark Lindsay. Back - Phil VolkPaul Revere & the Raiders was an American rock band that saw considerable U.S. mainstream success in the second half of the 1960s and early 1970s. Among their hits were the songs “Kicks” (1966; ranked number 400 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time), “Hungry” (1966), “Him Or Me – What’s It Gonna Be?” (1967) and the Platinum-certified classic #1 single “Indian Reservation (The Lament of the Cherokee Reservation Indian)” (1971).

Paul Revere has a style: a sixth sense for pleasing an audience. The magic chemistry of his personality has been a major factor in the Raiders’ rise to popularity; and not by sheer accident. He has created, over a period of time, a highly polished act built on warmth and spontaneity.

Paul has a knack for finding the finest talent and personalities to keep his group a top entertaining act year after year.

The group consists of founding member Paul Revere, Doug Heath (group’s lead guitarist for over 35 years), Ron Foos (bassist for over 35 years), Danny Krause (keyboardist for over 28 years), Darren Dowler (lead vocalist and Vocal Group Hall of Fame inductee) and Tommy Scheckel (drummer and newest member).
