The RAH Band was the brainchild of legendary English producer & arranger Richard Hewson. They debuted in 1977 with the cosmic glam hit “The Crunch”, on which Richard, an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, played all the instruments himself. In 1983, he released “Going Up” the second RAH Band album, where he also played most of the instruments himself, helped by several drummers, a brass section and the sweet vocals of his wife Liz Hewson. Including massive club classics like “Messages From The Stars”, “Perfumed Garden” and more.
A 1980’s classic which has influenced everyone in the dance scene from Daft Punk and Goldfrapp to Richard X, Dam Funk or Cornelius.
