Ray's profile picture
Alto Saxophonist
Public liability insurance of £4 million

Inspired by my father who sang with many swing combo's and big bands in local clubs and venues around Blackpool, I started playing clarinet and saxophone at 14 and joined the RAF school of music at 18. During my time with the RAF I performed all over the world. I have played many times for Royalty and has of state as well as venues like The Royal Albert Hall, Festival Hall, Buckingham Palace and Wembley Stadium (the old one :-)
