Raymond’s act is laced with spontaneity while at the same time well choreographed! A smoothness honed over years of the experience of taking his audiences on a journey as he tells his story. While his act consists of some of his original material, mostly taken off his latest CD, released on July 30, 2013, he still mingles enough of the memorable hits from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. Dance-able is an unavoidable word which has been used to describe his act. And while his music is dance-able there is enough in there to where the audience can just stand and enjoy or sit, tap their feet and clap their hands, which most do without much coercion from the band or himself. But he does invite the audience into his life.
His team of musicians is made up of professionals in their respective areas. With the seven of them on stage the show is explosive and the audience always hears something that they have never heard, experience some things that they have never experienced and has an enjoyable time.
“You know before you go” is his motto!!
He has appeared in Michael Jackson’s video, ‘Cry.’ He has practiced and perfected his craft through many years of hard work and dedication. His performances are always smooth and confident because he takes the time to get to know his audiences. He knows that this is one of the most important aspects of being an entertainer! He is able to gauge what aspects of his performance will gain a positive reaction from his audiences, which is partially a result of trial and error, but mostly a result of having a working knowledge of his audience which allows him to adjust his act accordingly. He has been called “The Voice” because he is able to deliver old-school soul at it’s finest.
