Thanks to the indefatigable Raymond Coats and his team of instrumental wizards your ENTERTAINMENT needs will be well met!  Just call them (415) 240-3200. Continue to check out the rest of our site & social media pages Ray Coats Music   – see who you know in common, shared interests etc. Learn what we’re into & see where you align. Who knows, maybe that Urban Contemporary Adult (Classic Soul) sound is just what you’ve been looking for to make your venue/event something very special. That funky-music  you find on Simply Raymond will take you places. I have come to this conclusion with the help of all of the young people who just don’t like the music that is being fed to them on today’s networks.  Syncopation, such as those found in ‘funk music’, things like off-beats or missing beats break the music’s rhythmic structure.  If you are like the rest of us, you will be dancing to the grooves on Simply Raymond in no time at all. My moderate amounts of syncopation will invite you to dance. Get your copy on this site, today!
