Greetings from the Raven’s Reels Alamanac!
As we sit in our houses, or work at our essential jobs across the globe, please take some time to read this as we have some news and requests for the community.

Millions of people across the globe have lost their jobs. Musicians have lost their paying gigs. Record releases have been greeted by closed record stores. Service industry jobs have gone on furlough, and artisans sit in their studios wondering where to share their wares. We have a few news announcements, then we’ll introduce the Raven’s Reels Reinforcements.

Since the hiatus of the band The Raven’s Reels Almanac has soldiered on and at times struggled to find it’s footing. I will take one brief moment to say that the Almanac is not going anywhere. This time in lockdown is being used to refresh the site, update the CRBase, and more. You will see lots of new soundboards coming out, VERY soon… stay tuned because all the news on what’s coming out and when, will be found HERE at the Almanac. That’s right! When the lockdown ends, the Almanac will continue following Chris Robinson, his associated bands, the guys from the CRB, Circles Around the Sun, and more. You will also see an alignment of the Raven’s Reels Almanac with more West Coast musicians, and more!!

Now for the Raven’s Reels Reinforcements. If you are wondering how to support local musicians and artists, we have curated this list of friends for you to check out. We’ll go over several folks who could use your support during this time. Check the list below! The store names are bolded, underlined, and CLICKABLE. Hit them to go right to their store! We’ll turn this into a weekly mailer, and update the list with new names. If you want to be added, contact me at
