Ray Carless

“Due to the recent passing of our beloved brother and lead saxophonist Ray Carless, which followed the recent deaths of our talismanic core member Pablo Gonsales and our long-time collaborator Trevor White, and the resulting professional and personal consequences, the band has had to postpone the East Coast segment of our forthcoming U.S. tour dates until 2023.

We hope friends and fans of Cymande, who were looking forward to seeing the band perform on the East Coast will understand that it is necessary to take some time off to heal, regroup and recharge, before fully heading back out on the road.

We are looking forward to seeing fans and friends at one or other of the shows on the remainder of the tour dates beginning on September 28th at the POP Montreal Festival; 30th September Desert Daze Festival, Lake Perris California; 2nd October Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, San Francisco and 4th October Golden State Theatre in Monterey, CA. Thanks to those of you who sent condolences and words of comfort and encouragement, we’re looking forward to seeing you soon”.
