Paul Revere and the Raiders Not Retiring Anytime Soon
Paul Revere continues to tour extensively -- entering his fifth decade in the music business -- performing hit gems such as "Just Like Me" (#11 in 1965); "Kicks," (#4 in 1966); "Hungry, " (#6 in 1966); "Up and Downs," (#22 in 1967); "Him or Me – What's it Gonna Be?," (#5 in 1967) amongst others with covers of many more hit classics.
"(Fans) enjoy hearing the music they grew up with and they enjoy hearing me relate to them and what we all grew up in and the fact that we're older now... and so what!?" said Paul.
"You can tell by watching our show that we have fun. This band has been with me an awful long time but we never get tired of doing our show because it's never quite the same," Paul says. Equal parts music and humor, the prime objective of a Paul Revere and the Raiders show is having a good time.
"Buddy Lee Attractions is excited to be the exclusive agency for Paul Revere & The Raiders. The music is timeless and their show speaks for itself. Paul Revere & The Raiders have kicked it out for over 40 years with no end in sight!" – David Kiswiney, BLA Responsible Agent
