Bands & Artists : Ray Vanderby and The Raynettes

goldfingers writes"

Ray Vanderby and The Raynettes

Chicago Blues show featuring the cool Hammond Organ Sound from Chicago!

Ray Vanderby is a veteran of the Australian music scene having performed and recorded for over 40 years. The son of a coal miner, Ray was born in Sittard, Limburg, the deep south coal mining region of The Netherlands in 1953. After migrating with his family to Orange NSW he started playing and fell in love with the Hammond Organ sound.

At age 12 in 1965, Ray became the youngest semi-professional organist in Australia, playing in dance halls, clubs and he scored a 4-year residency at the Hotel Canobolas.

In 1973 Ray based himself in Sydney and went on to record and perform with some of Australia’s top artists for many years such as Marcia Hines, Denni Hines, Cameron Daddo, John English, Stevie Wright, Blackfeather, John Paul Young and Doug Parkinson.

He supported international stars such as Osibisa at the Capitol Theatre Sydney and Joe *****er at Melbourne’s Myer Music Bowl.

Ray has also appeared on the Midday show, MTV and Countdown Revolution.

But it wasn’t always an easy life for Ray as he was drawn to the musician’s party lifestyle, not uncommon in the 1970’s. After 20 years of alcoholism, drug addiction, 3 marriages, loosing all his possessions and becoming homeless, he finally dried out in 1987 after almost loosing his life. He began recording and performing again and in 1991 Ray won the W.R.O.C./BMG National Song Writing Competition out of 2,500 entries from around the country.

Ray Vanderby and The Raynettes is based in Melbourne and Ray’s 3rd album "Married to the Blues" is a representation of his live Chicago style blues show. The album is released through Australia’s leading Blues and Roots label Black Market Music and filled with popular Delta, Mississippi, Texas, and Chicago style dance songs. With his gravelly beat-poet style vocals, gritty soulful Hammond organ playing, and Chicago style shuffle grooves, Ray executes his unique versions of popular classics. The live show is packed with dancing music, audience participation, humour and story telling. Your toes will tap, your hips will shake, you’ll laugh and you won’t be able to sit - it is a true celebration of one man's relationship with Blues music, the artistic constant of his life.

With the help of all (3 girl) vocal backup group The Raynettes, renowned musicians Ronnie Tabuteau on guitar and Dean Matters on drums, Ray Vanderby and The Raynettes is a 6 piece show that delivers a very entertaining performance. Hear it for yourself on the CD!

Some of the songs are:

B.B King’s - Let the good times roll - Everyday I have the Blues

Ray Charles’ - I can’t stop loving you - Hallelujah I love her so - Mess around

Robert Johnson’s - Sweet Home Chicago - Dust my Broom

John Lee Hooker’s - Serves me right to suffer – One Bourbon, One scotch, One beer

Willie Dixon’s - My Babe - I just wanna make love to you

Jimmy Reed’s - Bright lights Big City - Stormy Monday
