I have seen Ray perform live twice now, once in Seattle 2016 and in La (The Greek theater) June 2018. Both times , he was absolutely amazing and breathtaking! People need to get out of their comfort zone and just wait for the “old hits”. He sang exactly 8 older songs and 8 new songs in LA. Sure, he didn’t play some of the biggest hits, but he didn’t disappoint at ALL. He knows his music and took the audience on a refreshing journey. My sister and her husband who are not as familiar with his music (and thus weren’t waiting for “Jolene” or “Trouble” etc) thought he was excellent and so unique! I love Ray and will definitely go see him again and again... because he surprises and won’t just play same music over and over. I have my Spotify playing his hits whenever I feel like it (usually all the time , I’m a huge fan 😂) Ray, keep being you, genuine and talented, and thank you! Thank you for all the wonderful music you have created so far! Love 💕

Artists come with different personalities. We buy albums, songs, tickets based on the final work of art not who the person is. If u come wanting an entertainer, you’re not going to get it with Ray. U will enjoy the performance from the band, his voice, but not how he interacts with the crowd. I personally have not followed his latest work, & was disappointed not to hear his older classics like everyone else, however still enjoyed the performance. I can understand the crowds disappointment, people pay a decent amt of $ & want to hear songs they know. However, if u go just to see & enjoy the performance the band brings versus focusing on your “requirements” you’ll likely enjoy your evening more

Dear Ray: I doubt that you read reviews, and I think that's awesome for you as an artist. I have a suggestion, though, for you as a performer. Try to think of the bulk of today's concert goers as overgrown toddlers who need constant stimulus (audience interaction, movement on the stage, a hit or two, dance-able beats, ear-splitting volume, looking up from under the hat), or they will get bored and act out by yelling over you and playing with toys at inappropriate times. To wit: lots of your fans paying way more attention to each other and their phones than to you. In turn, the ones actually trying to listen to your new stuff, digging it or not- the non-hits, the slllllowwww quiet stuff, the lengthy Floyd-tribute jams complete with groovy zoomy camera shot of your guitarist's swingin' hairdo- will get frustrated. Either with the puzzling performance choices or with their seatmates. That's kind of how the crowd at your Red Rocks show felt. Bored and frustrated, and needing a nap.

I have been a fan of Ray's music for years and was looking forward to his concert at the Smart Financial Centre in Sugarland (a great venue, by the way), however, I must say I left his concert feeling disappointed. Ray did not play the songs that made me fall in love with his music. Songs like "For the Summer", "Winter Birds", "Be Here Now", Beg Steal or Borrow", Gossip in the Grain" were no where to be heard. Ray seemed intent on playing rock 'n roll and chose to ignore his great ballads. I like rock as much as the next person (my wife and I were fortunate enough to get to see Tom Petty on his last tour before he passed away) but come on Ray, throw in a few of your fans favorites.

Loved every minute of it. My wife bought tickets for my bucket list. The first song my eyes started to well up. He played older songs and new songs a perfect mix. The sound was perfect very professional. I sat on the edge of my seat for the whole show anticipating the next song. John Stewart from Wilco played bass and background vocals these guys just nailed it. One of my favorite shows ever, hope he comes back real soon.

Love the new music Ray. Love the older stuff as well. We had great seats and were surrounded by people having loud social media parties had to stand and let people by every few minutes. Couldn’t even begin to actually enjoy the concert. Felt so bad for the performers. May be my last live concert.

I really liked the venue at State Theater for the performance. It was perfect with just Ray and his awesome back up singer. Unfortunately some of the audience didn’t get the difference and acted like it was in a huge auditorium - rude talking, in and out of seats, yelling for him to play Jolene after he said several times that he would, ugh! enjoyed the mix of old and new music, as well as mixing in some harmonica. Ray interacted very little with the audience and when he did it was a dry witty humor that we couldn’t hear well. Disappointing, sound crew should’ve fixed that. I wasn’t a fan of the opening act but my young adult granddaughter liked her. I didn’t think he needed an opening act in that venue. We didn’t buy seats right away so ended up about 20 rows back and way to the side but sound was still okay although he pointed himself slightly to the other side of stage and never really moved much. Overall, I enjoyed Ray’s soulful music and lay back style!
