Don Ray Band / Press

“It’s rare to find recording artists that are as engaging and interactive with an audience as the Don Ray Band. Their musical performance is absolutely stellar from start to finish. They are true entertainers that don’t quit, even after the last note rings.”

John Hursey - Canal House Music Venue owner, Ohio

“DON RAY BAND/On Top Of The Heap -This Nashvillian has a growling, bluesy, bruiser delivery with more than a little Southern-rock punch. This whole album rawks and these guys are great live! ”

Robert K. Oermann - Music Row Magazine

“The Don Ray Band released its first CD, On Top of the Heap in 2009 to much critical acclaim, Lonesome Rider, due to be released on August 17th is a terrific followup. The production/sound mix is very clean and crisp, making it a totally pleasurable listening experience. When I first listened the Lonesome Rider CD it reminded me of a little Johnny Lang, some Robert Cray, some Skynyrd, especially on track 11, "Gone Nowhere." Hard to pin down Don's singing, as to who he reminds me of, but his voice comes through loud and clear, every word easily picked up. Great job Don! Pick up this CD now! Check out the band at www.donrayband.com and make sure when you're on the site to click on the tour schedule and go see them when they come to your town. ”

“Don Ray is a Master at Blue Eyed Soul”

"On Top Of The Heap" could possibly be one of the most well rounded discs I've listened to.From the first to the last track, it has it going on vocally, musically and lyrically. Don and the background singers are singin' their hearts out while the band is kickin' out some rockin' blues
