Event Description

Sugaray Rayford

When Sugaray belts out a song, you not only hear it, you FEEL it. The excitement in the room is palpable as he pounds the stage; he is a superb vocalist and entertainer with a dynamic voice ( Bobby Bland / Soloman  Burke) LARGE just like the 6ft 5 man yet he moves with both grace & energy. His old school vocal style echoes Otis Redding ,Muddy Waters and Teddy Pendergrass and his fluid dance steps will remind you of the Legendary James Brown.

Sugaray is nominated for 4 BMA Awards in 2018 (WC Handy) The nominations are: Soul Blues Album / Soul Blues Male Artist / Instrumentalist-Vocals /B.B.King Entertainer of the Year

Texas born Caron “Sugaray” Rayford began aged 7 singing & playing drums in church, and his gospel influence can be felt in his music. His phrasing is intimate and conversational and the soulful gravel in his voice hints at his firsthand experience with hardship.

Since 2010 he has fronted the Sugaray Rayford Band currently made up of world-class musicians who tour extensively internationally: Gino Matteo on guitar, Drake "Munkihaid" Shining on keyboards, Alan Markel on bass, Lavell Jones on drums, and Allan Walker on sax. Ralph Carter is Suga's writing partner, joining the band on bass for live gigs on occasion, and Jade Bennett performs back up vocals on many projects.
