Jagged’s resident Latin percussionist. With his Cuban heritage, Ray has a natural rhythm that was passed down to him from generations of family musicians. As a small child he was given a set of handmade Cuban bongos and he spent countless hours listening and playing along with his parents’ albums of Caribbean music with artist such as Tito Puente, Celia Cruz, Carlos “Patato” Valdés and countless others. Ray enjoys the challenge in finding ways to incorporate percussion fills and beats into classic rock tunes while on stage with Jagged.
Began his musical journey with a love of the drums at the tender age of 8, after receiving a gift of a snare drum and continually playing it in his front yard, much to his neighbor’s dismay. He then moved on to a full drum kit, honing his drumming skills and emulating some of the most influential drummers of our time, from Buddy Rich, to Ian Paice (Deep Purple),to Neil Peart (Rush). George and his brothers started the band “Third Creation" in the early 70`s through the early 80`s, which had them successfully touring the West Coast, Rocking venues from their early teens to adulthood. He then stepped out from behind his drum kit and took up the lead vocal duties with the band "Voyager" in the mid 80`s, taking a few years off to get married and raise two daughters. Besides his drumming, George also assists with the lead and backing vocal duties alongside his sister Roxy. This gives Jagged a tight sound, which takes you from a beautiful ballad to in your face Rock and Roll! What’s next for George as his journey continues...? Only time will tell, but rest assured, there will be ROCK!
