"There is no way to express how excited I am for this amazing and wonderful opportunity to work with a band that has such a tremendous legacy in the music industry.
I grew up in Georgia listening to my father sing Gospel music. I would also hear the recordings my parents had of Sam Cooke, James Brown and Otis Redding. This music has left an indelible mark on me throughout my life and career as a musician. When I came to Boston to attend Berklee College of Music as a trombonist, one of my first exposures to performing in horn bands was getting to play a significant portion of the Tower of Power playbook.
Needless to say, when I received the call from Mr. Castillo to join the group, I was excited, thankful and completely filled with joy. I have a profound respect and admiration for all of the great vocalists that have preceded me, especially Mr. Larry Braggs, who is the longest tenured singer ever to grace the Tower of Power stage.
I look forward to carrying on the legacy and becoming a part of the ToP family. I cannot wait to share the gift I have been given with each and every one of you!"
Ray Greene's first appearance was on New Year's Eve, 2013 in Lincoln, CA at Thunder Valley Casino Holiday Pavilion.
