Ray Rich

 

 

The Ray Rich Band is one of the most sought-after musical acts currently active in the South-East of England. Founded by its leader Ray Stevens over 15 years ago, its versatility, flexibility and friendly approach have won it many friends and fans, as has the excellence of the many musicians that have entered its fold

Although Ray's original band based its sets around popular blues and soul classics (with a pinch of good-time rock 'n' roll thrown in), its ever-expanding roster of players has extended its repertoire. Indeed, as the total personnel active in the RR organisation numbers around 25, it is easily possible to book two or three different acts on the same night!

The musicians have a wealth of both studio and live experience and have worked with acts such as Belinda Carlisle, Paul Carrack, Cliff Richard, Level 42, Nick Heyward and the Blues Brothers (Official Tribute Show) - and have played at many top venues and hotels in the UK
