There is only one Ray Gelato !...Ray has been taking his special brand of swing, jazz and r'n'b music all over the world since 1988.
This multi-talented singer, saxman, songwriter and bandleader has appeared at festivals, clubs, and concert stages from Brazil to New York City, from Sicily to Norway, and all points inbetween. Ray and his world class band "The Giants" deliver a high energy show that never fails to get an audience on its feet. Ray has sometimes been compared to such greats as Cab Calloway and Louis Prima - in fact he is often spoken of as one of the last great jazz entertainers and has earned the nickname of "The Godfather of Swing" !
His music has been featured in a number of Hollywood movies such as "Inventing The Abbotts", "No Reservations" and "The Perfect Man" and TV shows both in the U.S. and U.K.
Highlights of Ray's performing career include playing more sold out shows at London's legendary Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club than any other artist, every year for at least the last 15 years, fronting an 18 piece big band in front of an audience of 3000 at New York's Lincoln Centre, regular residencies at many of Europe's finest jazz venues including the Blue Note in Milano, Italy, along with a busy summer festival schedule.
The main event for 2020 is the release of his new live album celebrating 25 years of the "Giants" band, released both on vinyl LP, and CD. This, and all his other releases are available to buy on the website
