With musical groups like the Drive By Truckers and other Southern Rock bands being drawn back to the Muscle Shoals area to record, it’s no wonder Don Ray Band chose to do the same. In search of the vibe and warmth of the 60s and 70s Shoals era Rock, Don Ray is happy to say, he feels like he and the band have dialed in to that vibe. The new album Full Throttle was produced by Will McFarlane and Don Ray, recorded and mixed by Jimmy Nutt at the NuttHouse studio in historic Sheffield, AL. and mastered by engineering legend Glenn Meadows at Mayfield Mastering, Nashville.

 

 
The Don Ray Band is an all original, Americana/Roots Rock, national touring band and is now anchored by vocalist Don Ray and Musician's Hall Of Fame Guitarist, Will McFarlane ( Bonnie Raitt, Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section ).
Their musical collaborations are unique and have proven hard to put a single label on the results... which have been called everything from "Rockin' Blues" to "Southern Rock" to "Blue Eyed Soul" to "Rock N Southern Country Roll" by some of the nations most notable music writers. One thing all of these writers have agreed upon, however, is that their albums are refreshingly original and a pleasure to listen to over and over again.

 

 

The band has recently added the dynamic, young, Muscle Shoals guitar slinger, Billy Smart, to their touring band. Touring this year will be Don Ray - Vocals,  Jonathan Armstrong on Keys, The Bandito Bros. Rhythm Section which is Jamie McFarlane on Bass and Justin Holder on Drums. And, of course, Will McFarlane and Billy Smart will be battling it out on Guitars.
