Stevie stiletto and the switchblades - it's a bogus life


Widely acknowledged as Jacksonville, Florida’s first punk rock band, Ray formed Stevie Stiletto and the Switchblades out of frustration. Tired of listening to records from New York or the UK and reading about his favorite bands performing elsewhere, Ray went DIY before it even had a name, and started his own movement out of the stubborn swamp grass better known as North Florida.

For so long, Ray McKelvey, the leader of Stevie Stiletto and the Switchblades, was at the heart of punk music in Jacksonville, known for outrageous stage shows. In the mid-'80s, the band owned the 730 Club on Dellwood Avenue, bringing in acts such as Black Flag and the Dead Kennedys.
