Rick wanted to play guitar after seeing the The_Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show in '64. He got his first guitar in '66 at the ripe old age of 6 going on 7. In '73 he started the band NEUROTIC which went on until 1985. He then formed the Rick Ray Band (version - 1) which went on until 1989. In 1990 he formed the band Riot Act which lasted until 2000. In 2000 Rick reformed 'The Rick Ray Band' (version - 2) and has been recording and performing with them since then. They've opened for Lynyrd Skynyrd, Blue Oyster Cult, Pat Travers , The Dregs , Robin Trower , Frank Marino & Mahogany Rush , The Steve Morse Band , The Michael Schenker Group , Allan Holdsworth , Kansas , Gary Hoey , Peter Frampton , The Mark Wood Band (members of Trans Siberian Orchestra) , The Average White Band and others. Although there are quite a few releases from The Rick Ray Band, it's in the live setting where this band really takes off. The Rick Ray band is: Jack Ambrose - Bass and Vocals, Gery Riva - Trumpet & Trombone, Rick Schultz - Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, Tenor and Soprano Sax & Oboe, Alex Abraham - Vocals, Sam 'PJ' Glorioso - Drums, Rick Ray - Guitar, Guitar Synth, Keys, Percussion & Vocals
