Long awaited update on Karaoke Contest!

Written by Harald on .

karaoke_skeletonFinally you get the hard-deserved and long awaited update on the "Karaoke-Contest" with this.
It has been in no way meant to be a contempt of all the great recordings and individual input we got from each of you.
There have been so many great songs recorded and sent to us that we almost got into an internal quarrel in the band about which of the participants belongs to our Top 10. We finally are about to be able to release them and can already tell you that it's been no easy decision at all and we had to listen to the songs again and again during the past time. Thanks for all your patience and we hope to very soon name the winning contributions. The Rays.

Henjo in Hospital

Written by Harald on .

Dear All,

unfortunately we are forced to deliver the bad news that Henjo Richter had a bike accident and broke three ribs and the collarbone, so he will not be able to play on the cruise. Since we couldn't find a replacement and did not want to cancel the show and leave our fans disappointed, we have decided to play the show nevertheless and give our longtime live keyboarder Mr. Corvin Bahn (Crystal Breed) some extraspace and a distortionpedal for his organsounds. So if you're on the boat and around 1:45 am hear something that sounds like Deep Purple playing Gamma Ray songs, its us. Hope you'll enjoy this 'Show beyond the ordinary' .

Cheerzzz and have fun

Da Rrrrayzzz.
