Ray McCoy has been singing for his whole life, but mostly in places where no one could hear. Seven years ago, when the calling and the purpose became greater than his desire for solitude, Ray was moved to reveal his overwhelming passion for singing, This passion can be found from start to finish in Ray’s “Luther Vandross Tribute Show,” while performing original Vandross classics including many of his well known ballads and love songs such as “So Amazing”, 'Here and Now” “A House Is Not A Home”, and “Superstar.”
In 2010 KBLX Radio celebrated the group as the “Event of the Year” for their performance at the Dunsmuir Mansion House in Oakland. That same year, the band performed “Sundays In The Redwood” at The Woodminster Amphitheater alongside season headliners Pete Escovedo, Goapele, The Oakland East Bay Symphony, Angie Stone, and George Duke.
