Soul singer Tonia Ray and The T Ray Band’s groove and sound will take you back to some of your favorite memories on a holiday-themed Neo-Soul and RnB ride! Tonia Ray (Tonia Rayvocals) delights audiences with her boundless energy and powerful voice. The T Ray band joins her: Jeff “J-Bug” Louderback Jr. on drums, Jeff Louderback Sr. on bass, and Eric “EJ” Johnson on keys.
The tem “Neo soul” was coined in the late 90s to describe a style of music that emerged from soul and contemporary R&B. Heavily based in soul music, neo soul is distinguished by a less conventional sound than its contemporary R&B counterpart, with incorporated elements ranging from jazz, funk, hip hop and electronic to pop, fusion, and African music. It has been noted by music writers for its traditional R&B influences, conscious-driven lyrics, and strong female presence.
