From California to the famous Blue Cat Blues in Deep Ellum, Dallas, TX, Ray Davis, with his group Pocketful of Blues, have rocked crowds with the ever-pleasing covers as well as with his sincere originals. Ray has opened for such popular blues artists as Susan Tedeschi, Johnny Lang, and the Legendary Chicken Hawks. He has starred in a regional Braum's television commercial featuring his singing and harp playing. He has an established fan following and can be seen at numerous blues festivals across the Midwest, or at any number of his favorite hang-outs such as Moose and Vinny's, Six Flags, or the TX Motor Speedway Club in Ft. Worth.
