Kool Kat Lite is the core of the flagship act, Big Ray and the Kool Kats. Still completely live with no tracks or sequencing, Kool Kat Lite has shown the ability to deliver the same levels of entertainment, sound, and customer service that are the hallmark of Big Ray and the Kool Kats.

Perfect for the event with space and/or budget limitations, Kool Kat Lite plays the same arrangements of the same songlist used by Big Ray and the Kool Kats. The only differences are 2 less horns, 1 less female vocalist, and Sinatra stylist Dan Barrale is on drums as well vocals.

Kool Kat Lite offers smaller options for just about any occasion or budget. Ranging from Jazz Trio or Quartet to customized options to suit a theme or musical style.

Thank you for being SO awesome to work with on the Froehlich wedding! I really enjoyed getting to know you and I have to say, you were the kindest band leader and were a team player at the same time. Not to mention, the band was fantastic! I'm really looking forward to working with you again and I hope we have the opportunity soon.

Barry- Thanks for hooking me up with Ray and the Kool Kats. They were truly the PERFECT fit for this event.

Ray’s pre-event communication were timely, clear and professional. And then  they delivered on everything he said they would and then some. Great music, nice people and an easy team to partner with. 

Just an absolute pleasure to work with, thanks to both of you.

Mother of the Bride

Big Ray and the Kool Kats were an amazing band. They are fantastic performers and Ray is also an extraordinary emcee. He along with his band created an epic wedding reception for our daughter. They were superb!

I want to extend a huge thank you to EastCoast Entertainment and Kool Kat Lite and Big Ray for their wonderful performance at the WNO Ball. The guests loved the strolling trio and many people were on the dance floor by the end of the night. This group has by far been the easiest group we’ve worked with from ECE. They weren’t demanding, they were polite, they were flexible, they didn’t complain, and they put on a fantastic show. Their professionalism and sound quality far surpassed any group we’ve used in quite a while. So thank you for helping to make that happen.

I sent Big Ray a thank you email as well. I have included the mention in the Washingtonian also.

We were so so so happy with Kool Kats Lite. We were happy to book them and then they exceeded our every expectation. Our guests had a wonderful time and so many people profusely complimented the band. I can't say enough good things about Big Ray and his group. He was so professional -- introduced himself at the cocktail hour to get further direction, clarified our requests throughout the evening and played wonderful songs. They started off with beautiful, classy music during the cocktail hour and dinner, played our first dances beautifully and memorably, and then kicked it up over time and we had a packed and exuberant dance floor for most of the night. They made our wonderful wedding day even more festive. Thank you!!!!

Wedding was terrific. We could not have been more pleased with Big Ray and the Kool Kats. Ray is warm, friendly, calm, and reassuring. When I told him we were altering the scheduled timing a little as we went along, he went with the flow and kept us right on track. He obviously wants a person's special event to be special and he takes the perfectly appropriate leadership role in making the party move along well for everyone. All the songs the band played sounded like the originals and our dancing crowd was loving every minute.
