After a 26-year hiatus, The Rave returned to Champaign IL for one night only: August 12, 2006 at Fat City Saloon, 505 S. Chestnut, Champaign IL. The Rave joined many other classic Champaign live music bands as part of the three-day Red Lion Reunion.

We Are The Rave:

Lyle Diamond (Brian Cook)
Master of the bass guitar and head crooner for the band, Lyle displayed powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men. Lyle's songwriting showed a pop sensibility which was refreshing for its time.
Garrett "Wolf" Oostdyk
When the "Werewolf of Woodstock" strapped on the Explorer you knew he meant business. Garrett is/was one of the finest players around and his gritty demeanor punctuated his high-flying sounds.
Herbert Tareyton (Kevin Hisel)
Billed as the former lead singer with The Ventures Herbie could really get the crowd going and on its feet. Fortunately our manager would chase them down and get them back into the club.
Tommy Domino (Tom Garza)
Originally hailing from East Hollywood, CA, Tommy showed potent prowess, pounding rhythms and seminal virtuosity. He was a pretty good drummer, too. Tommy kept the Rave on a very steady musical course.
Nina the Nun (Bill Slichter)
While not a formal member of the band itself, Nina was a powerful creative force. "She" nurtured a sense of imagination and camaraderie that kept the spark in the organization--and ran a mean spotlight.
