5.0 star rating Ben Bouchard from Vancouver bc


We saw Ray last night at the Queen Elizabeth theatre in Vancouver bc. It was a great night, Ray was humble, soft spoken almost shy. His songs were out it there with only three musicians on stage. Really good Ray! The crowd seems to want to scream out their live of him at awkward moments. Seems they wanted to hear themselves in the show. Weird crowd behaviour to try to catch the limelight instead on just being part of the audience.

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!

Ray is amazing. Dude is a wonderful talent. Would have been 5 stars if the opening act was decent, but she set a poor tone to start the evening.

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

Went to the show at the Fair Park Music Hall. Venue is top notch and the sound was some of the best I've ever heard. Ray's voice was identical to what his records sound like, which is a high compliment. So many artists are so digitally altered it's almost shocking to hear something so pure and unadulterated. There was only Ray and another musician on stage, which gave the night a very sparse, ethereal air. It was unexpected but very enjoyable. My only minor quibble was that I would have liked to have seen some songs with a full band. Other than that, for my first time seeing him, I was impressed and look forward to seeing him again. Great show!

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.
