The Ray Charles Project
We celebrate one of the greatest stars in the history of soul music, Ray Charles, with Jeremy Sassoon’s 17 piece Ray Charles Project. The perfect live music tribute act for theatre shows, jazz festivals and nights out in London and around the UK.
The Jazz Repertory Company presents Jeremy Sassoon's Ray Charles Project. Available as an 11 piece or with the full 17 piece ensemble, the show features a fantastic selection of classic hits including Hit The Road Jack, What’d I Say, Georgia On My Mind, You Don’t Know Me, I’ve Got A Woman and many more.
Jeremy Sassoon perfectly captures the sound and style of Ray’s singing and piano playing and his band creates a hugely exciting accompaniment of dazzling horns and a burning rhythm section all topped off with the fabulous harmony vocals of the three girl singers “The Jaelettes”.
He has the voice, the piano chops and the drive and excitement of the great Brother Ray.
"The vitality and spirit of the 'Genius of Soul' is passionately captured by Jeremy Sassoon's authentic revue.” Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club
"Such an atmosphere made the sold-out crowd applaud wildly for each tune and soak up the infectious feel-good vibe." London Jazz News
