Brian Ray’s party at the Roxy in Hollywood was undoubtedly one of the most energized shows we've seen. The house was packed to the gills, and Brian played songs from his newly released cd “This Way Up.” He was supported in the audience by his fellow Paul McCartney band mate, Rusty Anderson. Many other superstars filled the audience to see what Brian’s been doing in his time off the road from the McCartney tour.
In keeping with Brian’s charitable nature, he raffled off a number of musical instruments and equipment for the MusiCares charity, including the Voyage-Air Guitar. First up on stage, Voyage-Air CEO Jeff Cohen demonstrated the instrument while Brian pulled the winning name from the hat.
The lucky winner was Gerald Greene, who plays the drums, he sings, plays trombone, harmonica and now the Voyage-Air Guitar! He traveled extensively with his brother, Dennis Greene, a founding member of the group “Sha Na Na”. Gerald released his first solo cd in 1998 entitled “Yesterday Love” and is presently working on a new project called “It’s Time!” In addition to performing, Gerald also writes songs and has had success in acting, with parts in “Law & Order” and “Sex and the City.” He has also worked in the theater in a piece entitled “The Forgotten” written by his brother, Dennis.
It seems that there is no stopping this multi-talented man, there’s no telling where he might show up next with the Voyage-Air Guitar!
