Ray Charles Tribute Orchestra
Paying homage to one of the greatest musicians of all time, the Ray Charles Tribute Orchestra is a 9-piece ensemble performing the hits penned by the legend himself.
Formed by Musical Director John Gray, bassist and leader on the Calgary Jazz scene who toured with the Ray Charles Orchestra, the ensemble of the city’s finest musicians recreate the one-of-a-kind sound of Ray Charles and perform such hits as ‘Georgia On My Mind’, ‘MaryAnne’, ‘Hit the Road Jack’ and ‘Let the Good Times Roll’.
Featuring Grammy Award Winner Donald Ray Johnson on vocals, the group includes a solid rhythm section, a killer horn section and backup singers known as the “Donald Raylettes.”
The Ray Charles Tribute Orchestra is quickly becoming well-known throughout Alberta. Their tight sound, danceable rhythms and extensive repertoire have captured audiences whose tastes run from Jazz to Blues, Soul, R&B, Gospel and Country.
