The Ray Rich Band is one of London and the south-east’s most sought-after wedding, party and function bands. Playing a varied set of soul, blues and rock & roll – as well as contemporary chart classics – The Ray Rich Band are guaranteed to have your guests on the dance floor… all night long!
The band are talented and experienced musicians who have graced stages and recording studios with some of the music industry’s biggest and brightest stars.
Flexibility is one of the keys to the Ray Rich Band’s success as a wedding band, function band and party band. Not only does their slick and exciting set appeal to a wide range of ages – everyone from the youngest to the oldest guests will be on their feet enjoying themselves – the line-up can also change depending on your budget or musical requirements.
For example, for the full soul band experience – an absolutely amazing and impressive sound – the line-up can expand to a 7-piece, complete with a brass section. Or, for a smaller budget, why not just add saxophone? That would also enable you to have solo sax during a drinks reception.
The band can also slim down to a jazz trio or quartet, playing background music during the wedding breakfast, or when guests are dining. The Ray Rich Band’s popular ‘Loungecore’ set – playing instrumental versions of rock, pop and soul classics in a jazz and latin style – is perfect for this kind of low-key music experience. See our videos page for the band’s recent ‘Loungecore’ studio session. You can even choose to add vocals to the ‘Loungecore’ set, the band running through some well-known 50s and 60s hits with Ray, our singer.
We can even supply an MC for your party or event!
We realise it can be daunting when organising events, so please speak to us for more information on any of the above. We are more than happy to help and give advice.
As part of the service we are also able to provide backing tracks for when the band are not playing, using our own PA and sound system. Whatever your musical tastes and whatever your needs, we can help… even if you want to supply your own music on your iPhone of MP3 player.
As an experienced band it goes without saying that we also have our own lighting system – although please note that, along with the PA, this will only be available during our booked performance times.
The Ray Rich Band have full public liability insurance.
