CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Ray Jaurique & The Uptown Brothers

Ray Jaurique and The Uptown Brothers are a singer/songwriter/guitar player and three seasoned musicians who are focusing on one thing: Presenting well written, soulful songs, written & sung by Ray. It’s the job of the guys in the band putting a little icing on this musical cake. What seems to separate this band from so many others is the focus on original roots and blues music that are so accessible and easy to tap your toes to. First time listeners comment that Ray’s songs seem so familiar that they swear they may have heard at least one of his songs before. More than once the question has come up. “…Well what (or who) does it sound like?” The short answer might be “ well… it sounds like Ray & The Brothers”. But when pressed to compare, some are pointing to the Memphis & STAX. Others line it as one part Sam Cooke, one part Al Green, one part Albert King, one part Delbert Mc Clinton with a little Holland- Dozier- Holland and Stevie Ray thrown in. It’s a touch of blues, a bit of soul, it rocks, it rolls, it swings and after a couple of listens you can sing along. (It’s pretty friendly stuff.) Its music that speaks to love, heartbreak, bad times, good times, romance and in the end making the most of life
