Featuring Ray Charles’ band alumni - New York Vocalist/Pianist Billy Osborne, Alto Saxophonist Craig Bailey With Steve Kirby’s Big Dig! Band

They call him the “genius”and the “father of soul.” Ray Charles was a legend who combined genres as diverse as jazz, country, rhythm and blues and gospel. In a tribute to the genius of Ray Charles, Steve Kirby leads a 17 piece big band fronted by Cincinnati’s Craig Bailey, Ray’s longstanding lead alto saxophonist (1988-2004) and New York pianist/vocalist Billy Osborne, Ray’s 15-year songwriter and collaborator in a program of swinging arrangements of Charles’ favourite hits. A not to be missed evening of pure joy!
