  • The Fabulous RAVE - 'Neil MacIsaac'

    Neil plays lead guitar and provides lead vocals

    in "The RAVE". He is a founding member of the

    band. He uses two (almost) identical Fender

    Telecasts and a Fender Twin Reverb amp. He

    enjoys the clean sound of combination.

    Neil is an accomplished tribute performer

    (Buddy Holly & Elvis) and has reached second

    level in competitions in the annual Collingwood

    'Elvis Presley' events.

  • The Fabulous RAVE - 'Benny Sanders'

    Benny, in addition to playing drums, is also

    an experienced lead vocalist. He dabbles with

    guitar and keyboards and is working on songs

    for a new CD as well.

    Benny enjoys appearing on reality TV shows

    and in local movies. Of note, is his audition

    to be lead vocalist for INXS (Rockstar) and

    the demolition of his shed on 'Disaster DIY.'

    He's a friendly guy who teaches yoga in his

    spare time and recently went back to school

    to realize his desire to become an elementary

    school teacher.

    Benny plays Ludwig drums with Zildjian & Sabian cymbals

  • The Fabulous RAVE - 'Tony Carr'

    Tony first saw the light of day on Dec.6, 1943,

    under the big top, of circus life where his parents

    performed as high platform divers with the

    world-famous Conklin Shows. He set himself the

    task of becoming a musician, practising tenor sax

    for 6 to 8 hours a day. Carr gained a reputation

    as a leading rhythm and blues musician, working

    with such notables as Rompin' Ronnie Hawkins

    and Ben E. King (of "Stand by Me" fame), then

    toured for 20 years with his own band....

    Tony provides tenor sax, vocals and percussion

    and gives The Fabulous RAVE fun Rock 'n' Roll

    excitement to the vintage tunes and that smooth

    laid back jazz sound when the band performs

    some of the Oldie but Goodies.

  • The Fabulous RAVE - 'D'Arcy Cain'

    D'Arcy has been playing guitar since 1967.

    D'Arcy plays various instruments. In "The
