Yo Ray,
Just got back home from the "Best Coast" and looked you up on the Web. Just wanted to say thanks again for letting me drum a few songs with you, and your partner from Clinton, NY, at the World Market in Portland about a week ago. It was a blast! Wish that I lived closer so we could jam again! I'll be giving my DW Classics a work out this Saturday at a gig here in NY. Keep in touch, Brother! Peace, Bob Allen, Lowville, NY.

I enjoyed our conversatio9n at the Vancouver Farmer's Market during one of your breaks this afternoon. I see on your calendar that you are performing several more dates this month at the Farmers Maket in Vancouver so I plan to check in with you again.

As I mentioned when I left, I felt fortunate that the train was delayed so that I could hear and meet you. Fate takes us down intereswting paths and detours!!!
Have a good day.

Hi, Ray, It was so good to see you and talk with you again at Saturday Market last week! I got on your website and sang along to a couple of your songs and remembered that you sing in keys that are easy for me to harmonize with. Hmmm . . . maybe we could get together again for some singing. Later, Suzanne McKay

Hey Ray, I don't know if you remember me I used to sing at Jollies, went to Nashville yadayada. I ran into Doug Paris last night and your name came up I asked if he ever saw you, he said yes. Well I always enjoyed your playing so here I am checking out your sight, you look very busy too. I have continued my passion for music, writing, and singing also. Currently working on a Blues project.
Well I look forward to hearing you again one of these days.
Happy New Years,
Peace my friend.

Ray: HELLO HELLO .... I was trying to
find music to add to my site to break
up the hardcore stuff (9/11, corrupt
government, etc) I thought about the
BWJQ, and I found your site. Amazing
what you can do on the net. Take Care
