Ray Banman grew up in a small community in Manitoba. It was here that he was first introduced into music, when he started learning the organ. The organ taught Ray to explore and appreciate the various parts of music, and above all, make the message of the song a priority.
Touring has taken Ray across Canada and the United States playing shows in most every kind of venue and has opened for big names such as “Kool & the gang”, “Jully Black”, “Tom Cochrane”, “Karl Wolf”, “Great Big Sea”, “Colin James” and “Daniel Wesley”. Over the course of Ray’s career, he has performed in funk, soul, motown, R&B, jazz, big band, rock, pop, and country/western bands.
