Give Me Just A Little More


The Rays play a mixture of styles - taking in jazz, soul, reggae and many standards. We are happy to do a whole evening of material from the likes of Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra and Louis Jordan or alternatively give you a night of Tom Jones, UB40, Wilson Pickett and Barry White.

We are happiest playing both sides of the coin in one night, giving a rounded evening to the broadest audience possible. One of the Two Rays sings and plays tenor and baritone sax (though not all at the same time). The other Ray plays clarinet, alto and soprano sax.

Hip Hip Two Rays generally play two 45 minute spots, "with extra time for injuries" (we've been known to do the odd encore). Any function requiring a DJ for the "other bits" of the evening can also be covered by our erstwhile Mixing Desk Girl / Occasional Backing Vocalist / Chauffeur / Self Appointed Manager, Jill. We can stay up as late as you.

We play many of our songs as faithfully to their original style as possible, but we also like to throw in the occasional oddity. Guitar territory such as Wonderful Tonight and Parisienne Walkways take on a completely different feel when we play them. And if the audience is the right stuff, their assistance as a small kazoo orchestra on songs such as Minnie The Moocher and Delilah can be something to behold.

Whether it's a formal function or a bit of fun, Hip Hip Two Rays can fit your style. Just make sure they don't offer you the inflatable sax.

"The spontaneous response of our guests to dance must have pleased you, from the oldies like us to our grandchildren, who had a wonderful time. Somehow you bridged the age gap and everyone went home happy.

I have a suspicion that you all enjoyed the evening - you certainly appeared to - and that can only be taken as proof of your
professionalism and success in giving pleasure on a happy occasion."
- Kathleen & John Robinson, Southport

"I look at you, and then I hear that voice, and I think... how? I mean, you're no oil painting, are you?"
- Stewart Urwin, Thornton Cleveleys

"What can we say! We enjoyed the evening so much, as did all our guests... you really did us proud and we have had so many comments from people saying how much they enjoyed the music."
- Gordon & Lynne Barton, Samlesbury

"Just a quick note to say thank-you so much for Sunday. Your music really made the night for me and I know everyone there really enjoyed it...because they keep telling me so!!!!"
- Bethan Worthington

"Thank you so much for the fantastic job you did at my 21st party. I had the best night ever and you made it perfect! Everybody said you were fantastic and a couple have asked for your number! It is my mum's 50th in January and we are hoping to have a party
for her so it shouldn't be too long before we see you again!

"Thanks again for all your hard work at my party I will remember it forever."
- Karli Plant, Freckleton
