2012 Entertainment the Don Ray Band

Don Ray Band is an all original, Americana/Roots Rock band that is anchored by singer/songwriter Don Ray and is produced by Musician's Hall of Fame Guitarist, Will McFarlane (Bonnie Raitt, Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section). Jonathan Armstrong masters the keyboards and The Bandito Brothers Rhythm Section, Jamie McFarlane and Justin Holder, are at the helm of the band's groove. Guitarist Billy Smart has joined the touring band for their upcoming concert dates.

Through their many reviews, their musical collaborations have proven hard to put a single label on the results...which have been called everything from "Rockin' Blues" to "Southern Rock" to "Blue Eyed Soul" to "Rock N Southern Country Roll" by some of the nations most notable song writers. One thing all of these writers have agreed upon, however, is that their albums are refreshingly original and a pleasure to listen to over and over again.

The song This Is Our House was written by Don Ray and Jonathan Armstrong while on the road to John Hursey's Canal House music venue in Tuscarawas County, OH for a gig in 2011. The T-County area is Jonathan's home town and he wanted to write this song for the community of music loving people that he grew up around. This Is Our House is dedicated to the wonderful family of people in T-County and every community that has that special Roadhouse in which they gather and enjoy music together. Ain't nothin' better!

Check out the band's store page on their brand new website where you can pre-order their newest CD Full Throttle to be released May 1st and other CD's.....

 Make sure you stop by John Hursey's The Canal House in Tuscarawas on Saturday May 19th at 9pm where the Don Ray Band will be performing!

We hope you will join us on Saturday July 7th from 6pm-9pm to listen to this awesome and entertaining band for the Gnadenhutten Fireworks Festival at Heck's Grove Park. They will be entertaining the crowd prior to the beginning of our spectacular fireworks display, "Country Fantasy in the Sky" which will begin at 10:00pm with radio station WTUZ 99.9 doing a live broadcast to music . This is what makes our fireworks THE BEST in Tuscarawas County!

See You There!
