A Ray of Charles – LEAF Fri 27th July
LEAF Tea shop will be swinging to an altogether more refined soul beat this weekend as tribute act A Ray of Charles pop in. Fronted by former Christians singer Russell Christian, the covers act have been earning rave reviews for their uncanny likeness to both the sound and energy of the singer popularised by a heady recording career and the Jamie Foxx starring Ray a few years ago. Like Russell’s previous incarnatioon the band is a family affair, with a few of those involved within the project Russell’s daughters and their long term partners, which adds to the tightness of the sound and the welcoming feel of the shows. Fat City Spinner Chris McBride supports, and you can get tickets here.
