Marty Raybon

Click on picture for band's website.

Josh Turner says: Marty is one of the best soul singers in music. He gets inside a song and turns it inside out. When you listen to him sing, he makes every word sound important and makes you feel as though he is singing to you. He is a great singer, a great artist and a great man.

Grass Cats

"The GRASS CATS put on a fantastic show, the music and energy level was amazing and our event would not have been as successful without them! I would recommend them for all occasions and venues. Thank you so much GRASS CATS we had a wonderful time!"
