Raputa – J. Geils Tribute Band is a true tribute band in every sense of the word. When you see Raputa perform, you feel as if you are experiencing the J. Geils Band from the 1970s. Raputa is the only J. Geils tribute band in Michigan (and quite possibly the United States). Raputa takes you back to the Cinderella Ballroom in Detroit in April of 1972 performing the “Full House” album in its entirety. Raputa will also take you back to Cobo Hall in Detroit in November 1975 performing selections from the “Blow Your Face Out” album. Last but not least, Raputa will take you back to Pine Knob Music Theater in September 1982 performing selections from the “Showtime” album.

Raputa – J. Geils Tribute Band has performed for various events since their inception in 2012. Some events Raputa has performed at are: Meridian Winter Blast in downtown Detroit, Detroit River Days opening for Steppenwolf, Ford Arts Beats & Eats, Trenton Scarecrow Festival, Sherwood Brewing Company, Packard Grill, Trenton Oktoberfest and Younger’s Irish Tavern in Romeo which produces many tribute shows. Raputa has also performed at private events.

Raputa – J. Geils Tribute Band was recently nominated as a finalist for Outstanding Tribute Band at the Detroit Music Awards.
Raputa is the hardest drivin’ band in the land. All members have a long history on the Detroit music scene. Out in front is the Woofa Goofa Mama Toofa himself, H.F. Kilian. Blowin’ the meanest harp this side of Chicago is “Magic Larry” E. Rounding out the houseparty is Dave “Geils” on guitar, Doug “Night Train” on drums, Tony “The Luger” Lucio on keyboards, and Dave Haberek "The Ace” on bass.
Raputa is Da Beauta and they’re ready to…….BLOW YOUR FACE OUT!!!
