When Sugaray Rayford sings not only do you hear it but you feel it! Sugaray Rayford is a big man with an even bigger voice. He describes himself in one of his tunes as “six foot five, 300 pounds” and he is most certainly a giant in the blues world. And he’s got dance moves that make some 20 year olds blush. He began his singing career in Texas when he was just seven years old, singing and playing drums in church. He grew up bringing that gospel feel to the blues.  When he moved to L.A  he became one of the outstanding vocalists for the famed blues band, Mannish Boys. He is a big man with a big voice and big heart.   Sugaray is equally at home with the sounds of Memphis soul as he was with Chicago blues.  

Nominated for 2016 Blues Entertainer of the Year…  ”I am so honored to be nominated in these categories. I always try to honor the blues and those who came before me, with every performance I give. A big thank you to all those who love the blues and fight to keep it alive. The blues lives in my soul and my aim is to share my passion around the world until the day they lay me on the coolin’ board”  ~  Sugaray Rayford
