Band, CA

Ravin’ was a 1970s Canadian jazz-funk band that had a half an LP release on CBC Records and won the first Q107 homegrown contest. Performing regularly at the El Mocambo and the Isabella Tavern in Toronto, Ontario, Ravin’ achieved moderate success and helped perpetuate the careers of many of its members. Parts of their performance also included Latin-funk overtones, as exhibited on the Rick Morrison/Santana track "Aruba/Europa". Marty Morell has gone on to have a highly prolific jazz-based career. Jack Lenz is one of Canada’s top television and film composers and has written original songs for Andrea Bocelli, Nanalan', The Grogs, Little Mosque On The Prairie, Due South and Men With Brooms. Rich (Rick) Morrison, a featured performer on April Wine's album, "On Record", has recorded and performed with Martha Reeves, Long John Baldry, Roger Whittaker, The Good Brothers, Teenage Head, Rupert "Ojiji" Harvey’’ of Messenjah, T.H.P. Orchestra, The Band, The Sattalites, and Ronnie Hawkins. Vocalist Wayne St. John, who besides having an extensive solo career and being entered into the Black Canadian Music Hall of Fame (1982) , sang lead vocals for Ocean (band), Domenic Troiano band, Dr. Music (with Doug Riley and Don Thompson), T.H.P. Orchestra, Motherlode, Dr. Lonnie Smith (jazz musician) and performed on the single “Tears Are Not Enough” – which was recorded by a Canadian super-group to raise money and awareness for the 1983-84 Ethiopia famine. Hugh Brockie was one of Ronnie Hawkins’ “Hawks” and a founding member of Bearfoot and Skylark. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
