To Ray With Love Starring Maceo Parker

08:00 pm - 04/20/2018

@ Wharton Center for Performing Arts

750 E Shaw Ln
East Lansing MI  48824



A young saxophonist from North Carolina once stood outside the Greensboro Coliseum hoping to catch just a glimpse of his idol, Ray Charles. That young man went on to become a legendary player in funk music history as James Brown’s saxophonist. Ray Charles’ music remained an undeniable influence throughout Maceo Parker ’s career, and he included a Ray Charles cover on each of his albums. Maceo Parker was thrilled to go on tour with Charles in the ‘90s. Now, Maceo Parker joins forces with The Ray Charles Orchestra & The Raelettes for a spectacular program honoring his hero. To Ray with Love, the ultimate tribute to Ray Charles, premiered at the Hollywood Bowl in 2016, followed by a performance at the Monterey Jazz Festival to stunning acclaim.

Now, this astonishing show comes to East Lansing!
