Ray Black & The Flying Carpets are totally devoted to the raw and honest sound of early Rockabilly. Still these guys are not afraid of critically selected garage songs from the 60s, that they translate into their own style and use them as a fuel injection for their mainly authentic Rockabilly sound.
The outcome is a highly driven performance, that is danceable, whether you want to bop or to jive and shows the uncompromising dedication of the four bandmembers Ray Black (Singer, Upright Bass), Martin Bone (Lead Guitar), Howlin’ Herbst (Rhythm Guitar, Baritone), Boz Doz (Drums) to what they do, on every stage that they enter.
The band is based in Stuttgart (Germany), but has played all over the country and in Austria, Switzerland and in France. All band members are active musicians in the scene, playing with The Hidden Charms, The Railbones, Dusty Dave & The Heartattacks or Blue Rockin’ so you certainly could have seen them on stage before.
