RIFF/RAFF would like you to join us in welcoming our newest member, JOEL PROTO on Guitar.

When Craig Boom notified us that he was moving on to pursue different projects, we knew we had some HUGE shoes to fill. Craig was and is an outstanding guitar player and we definitely understood his desire to branch out to display his chops. He will be missed. We wish him nothing but the best!


So, with Craig moving on, we rallied our contacts and scheduled several auditions with guitarists that we knew in the hopes that we'd be able to seamlessly transition from one of the area's best and well-known talents in Craig Boom, to someone that would absorb the material and keep the chemistry strong. Everyone that came out was EXCELLENT!
The choice was not an easy one, but as the saying goes, "There can be only one", and I think we found our guy.

Joel plays guitar in the Bay Area Band, Featherwitch and is also the current guitarist in San Francisco's 80's Heavy Metal band, VAIN. He also recently filled in with the Bay Area AC/DC Tribute Band, AC/DZ, so he understands the nuances of Malcolm Young's Legendary persona. He's got that cool "guitar guy" vibe onstage and has a relaxed laid back
personality that seems to fit right in with the rest of us.

His first show with us will be at Swabbies on July 7th, so come on out, say “Hi", and Welcome JOEL PROTO to the RIFF/RAFF Family!
