Red Ravens @ Cyclone See the photos by Justin Everett Red Ravens Take Cyclone by Storm By Justin Everett On February 18, 2017, the Red Ravens played a dance at SPJST Lodge 24 in Cyclone, TX. The Red Ravens were formed in 1969 by former band leader, Jodie Hermis. Since then, the band has gained much popularity among polka music fans and have enjoyed many accomplishments, such as headlining on cruise ships and appearing on the television show "Mollie B Polka Party." The Red Ravens played a great show at Lodge 24 by opening with "Angel Polka." The guys also switched gears by playing the famous country number "Lonesome 77203."  The boys put the icing on top of the polka cake by closing with "Thanks for a Wonderful Evening Polka." Texas polka legends Alfred and Anton Vrazel even joined the Red Ravens on stage and played a few Czech favorites. Daniel Wilde made sure no one at the dance went hungry by whipping up his fresh grilled hamburgers which everybody loved!  A big thanks to everyone who attended and a big thanks to the Red Ravens for playing at Lodge 24.
