 "I just sent Strathmore an extra $100 with my membership renewal--because of you!" - Gala Attendee

"Big Ray & the Kool Kats have preformed at the Senior Center Grand Gala in Charlottesville, Virginia for the past three years and each year they are outstanding! Ray is very professional and responsive which makes the planning process a breeze. I couldn't have asked for a better band to play at this special event. We had guests (including myself) dancing until the venue turned on the lights -- and they can play so many different genres of music which is perfect for events that had such a wide range of guests. Hands down, Big Ray & the Kool Kats is one of the best bands I have ever worked with!" - Kaitlyn, Event Planner
