Ray Ganucheau

Ray Ganucheau

Ray Ganucheau, was raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. He learned to play the guitar at the Valles School of Music in the Carrollton area of town. In his childhood and teenage years he refined his singing and guitar playing by performing in church, at house parties, social gigs and in nightclubs. Ray played numerous gigs on guitar and bass around New Orleans and on occasion in Nashville with singer-songwriter Pat McLaughlin. While living in Los Angeles in the early 90's Ray and his friend Carlo Nuccio also from New Orleans started writing and recording songs together. This was the catalyst for what would become the L.A. version of The Continental Drifters. The first songs Ray and Carlo wrote together were "The Mississippi" and "Johnny Oops", which would become the first Single released by the band in 1992 on the SOL label. Ray recorded one LP with the band titled "1993". He played with the band for few years and dropped out around 1994. He has also played bass guitar on recordings for Tommy Malone of the subdudes.

There are no scheduled shows.
