Ray KamalaySWING JAZZ
Ray Kamalay & His Red Hot Peppers

In the early 1930s, jazz artists like Jack Teagarden, Billie Holiday, Django Reinhardt and Lonnie Johnson graced the stages and ballrooms of America. Ballads, melancholy and blue, and hot tunes, laced with exciting improvisation, told stories of tragedy and joy and provided dancers with rhythm. Ray Kamalay and his Red Hot Peppers are reminiscent of this era. They have wowed audiences at some of the finer venues in North America, including Interlochen and the Philadelphia Folk Festival. Ray Kamalay, on guitar and vocals, will be joined by Gary Schunk on piano, and Kurt Krahnke on bass.
