Ray Shasho biography

Music journalist Ray Shasho was dubbed ‘Rock Raymond’ by friends and family for his love of rock music. Since a kid growing up in Baltimore, Maryland he became obsessed with music. In high school, he attended hundreds of rock concerts and even took a job at the famed Capital Centre arena to meet his favorite rock stars before and after their shows. After graduating from a CBS owned broadcasting school in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, Ray became a Top 40 radio deejay in the late 70’s and early 80’s and his life became the music. Unfortunately radio stations trusted computers (Arbitron ratings) over human instincts. It was the early radio jocks who discovered great music and put it out over the airwaves. Radio became mundane when they began mimicking each other based on the Arbitrons.

After his stint in radio, Shasho became an entrepreneur in electronics. Ray and his family owned and operated cutting-edge retail electronic businesses in Washington, D.C.  Shasho witnessed all the technological advancements firsthand and how it affected the music industry. From early transistor radios, record players, reel to reel tape recorders, cassette and eight track tape players, walkmans, CD players to MP3’s. Some of Ray’s clients included … Chuck Norris, James Mason, Ted Williams, Alex Haley, Art Buchwald, Dick Gregory, Dionne Warwick, John Candy, Jon Voight and General Colin Powell.

Ray Shasho published his first novel entitled Check the Gs, Ray’s comical and awe-inspiring novel about growing up in the family business. Shasho subsequently released a second novel entitled, Wacky Shenanigans on F Street-Proud to be Politically Incorrect in Washington D.C.

In 2010, Ray Shasho became a classic rock music journalist in St. Petersburg, Florida. It started out as a fun gig to help promote his book but something very extraordinary transformed. Shasho began covering concerts and music events around the Tampa Bay area and decided to take a crack at interviewing some of the rock music legends that he idolized all of his life. 

Ray’s very first “rock star” interview was Joe Lala who lived in Tampa, Florida. He contacted Joe by way of the internet and scheduled an interview at Joe’s home. Ray was surprised how cordial and amendable Joe was to tell the story about his rock and roll past. Ray and Joe spent hours together reliving his days of playing percussion with Blues Image, Stephen Stills and Manassas, The Bee Gees and Firefall. Joe disclosed stories about jamming with Jimi Hendrix and throwing Mick Jagger out of his hotel room in New York City. After the interview, Joe asked Ray to be his personal assistant and later to help write his own personal memoir.  Shasho was so overwhelmed with the ease of the interview that he immediately began his search for the next one.

Ray quickly became one of the top music journalists in the country. His column is read by thousands of music enthusiasts daily and Shasho’s in-depth interviews, album and concert reviews are featured on artist websites around the globe.

Shasho began asking each legendary musician, singer and songwriter this question … If you had a “Field of Dreams” wish, like the movie, to play or collaborate with anyone from the past or present, who would that be? The question became eminent to the interviewer and interviewee and the responses will surely surprise the most discerning music enthusiast.

Ray is currently the director of ‘The Publicity Works Agency’ promoting authors and musicians across the globe. His new book is entitled RADIO KILLED THE ROCK STAR  ‘WHEN THE MUSIC WE IDOLIZED VANISHED’  featuring over 50 Intimate Conversations with the Music Legends That Set Us Free. (A release date has not been announced as of yet) Music Journalist Ray Shasho has been on a rock and roll pilgrimage to help promote and save the greatest music the world has ever known.

Here’s a list of the music artists Ray has interviewed for the book and recently on the radio to help promote.

The True Story of an Eclectic American Family

and Their Wacky Family Business

AND

Wacky Shenanigans on F Street (2nd Edition)

Proud to be Politically Incorrect in Washington, D.C.

 

Wacky-Shenanigans-book.jpg

Check the Gs’ At an age when most kids are just getting rid of the training wheels on their bicycle, Ray Shasho entered into a crazy world of secret lingo and bullying sales tactics at the Chin Lung Art Gallery, his father's retail store on the corner of Thirteenth and F Street in Washington, DC. Check the Gs is the true story of how this bizarre family business changed his world forever. Raised by a Cuban Catholic mother and Syrian Jewish father, Shasho made his first sale at the age of six and never looked back. Life in the family business (and in the Shasho family) was never boring. From FBI interrogations to angry mobs, each new day at the Chin Lung Art Gallery brought with it new adventures. Check the Gs tells a story for everyone who is proud their family and heritage but not afraid to laugh at its many eccentricities, and for anyone who has ever worked in retail and experienced its humorous situations and misadventures.

Review …

…“This book takes you away to a time that will never be repeated in America. Where families worked together, ate together, and passed down the family business. Ray tells us his story and you are locked in from the first page. You live inside his family's retail store; when retail meant something before the Best Buys & Walmart's took away the shopping "experience." You're next to Ray when he attends rock concerts by real artists in the Baltimore & Washington DC area. This is a guy that lives & breathes two things: family & music. It’s a beautifully written book that I couldn't put down …

Highly recommended!”

KEVIN MARTIN INTERVIEW

CANDLEBOX CELEBRATES 25TH ANNIVERSARY

WITH U.S. TOUR

Currently celebrating their 25th anniversary, multi-platinum rock band Candlebox has not only withstood the test of time but, more importantly, they’ve withstood trends, trials and tribulations and come out stronger for it. Because for this hard-working band out of Seattle, the goal has always been the same – to create iconic music that would last a lifetime.

Taking their name after a Midnight Oil song, Candlebox burst onto the scene in 1991 with their debut, self-titled album that went on to sell more than four million copies, was certified four times platinum, and landed them in the number 7 spot on the Billboard Charts.

Their follow up album Lucy was also well received earning them a platinum certification and solidifying them as a tour de force in the thriving 90s music scene. The band would then go on to release Happy Pills in 1998, which would be their last album before their eventual hiatus in 2000.

The driving force behind Candlebox’s success has been their explosive live show and throughout their career, they’ve toured with such bands as Living Colour, The Flaming Lips, Our Lady Peace, Rush, Henry Rollins, Metallica and more. They were also a featured band on the main-stage at Woodstock '94 and made repeat live performances on the David Letterman show.

They are best known for the singles "Change", "You", "Far Behind" and "Simple Lessons". "Far Behind" from their debut album entered Billboard's Top 20 in July of 1993 and didn't drop off the charts until January of 1994. The videos for "Far Behind" and "You" were in seemingly perpetual rotation on MTV and became two of the most requested videos of 1993.

The band took a break from 2000 to 2006 and in 2008 the band reformed and released their fourth studio album called "Into The Sun". This meant their return since 1998's Happy Pills. Also, they released a live album called Alive in Seattle, which included tracks from all their past albums.

Candlebox then spent years touring and released their sixth album Disappearing in Airports, which debuted at #9 on the Billboard Charts and spurred many tours including a successful European tour. In January of 2018, the group kicked off their much-publicized “25 Years Of Rock & Still Rolling Tour” and announced two exclusive Seattle shows with all four original members, which sold out in minutes.

Kicking off January 25th in Grand Rapids, MI, this powerhouse band will perform the hits from the album that launched their careers including “Far Behind,” “You,” and “Cover Me” as well as offer a career retrospective by playing songs from the entire six CD catalogue all the way up to their latest release Disappearing in Airports.

To keep the tour fresh and exciting for fans, frontman and founder Kevin Martin decided to incorporate a variety of show formats and performance styles that would highlight the band’s dexterity. The routing comprises large venue concerts and appearances on such festivals as Rocklahoma as well as intimate acoustic dates that lend themselves to a story-tellers format.

“This tour is for our fans, those that have continued to support us for 25 years,” said Martin. “It’s been an honor to play for them throughout the years and we feel truly fortunate that our music continues to resonate with our audience. We can’t wait to hit the road for this one – I think people will be in for some big surprises!”

In addition to Martin, Candlebox members include Adam Kury on bass, Brian Quinn on lead guitar, Island Styles on guitar and Robin Diaz on drums.

Mark Stein is known as the voice, keyboardist and music arranger of the classic rock band Vanilla Fudge. Mark first founded Vanilla Fudge in 1966 at the age of 18 with members Tim Bogert, Vinny Martell, and Carmine Appice.

His new group, The Mark Stein Project continues to share his music, passion and stories. The Mark Stein Project is a true classic rock experience! Performing the hit songs of all the great artists he’s worked with, backed by a hand-picked, exciting array of young talent that kicks ass!!!

*Mark Hitt: Guitar/Vocals

(Robin Zander (Cheap Trick), John Entwistle, Brian Johnson of AC/DC, The Tubes)

*Jordan Steinberg: Bass/Vocals

*Charlie Zeleny: Drums

(Joe Lynn Turner from Rainbow/Deep Purple, Derek St. Holmes, Jordan Rudess from Dream Theater)

Touted by critics as one of the great voices in Rock—alongside of Glenn Hughes and Joe Lynn Turner—The Mark Stein Project is a night of great music & storytelling. Discover a place where a song leads to a story, and a story leads to a song. More than just a singer/musician, Stein is a skilled entertainer, with the talent and charisma to take the crowd along for a wonderful ride of the classic rock experience.

Stein has shared whiskey with Janis Joplin, sung with Michael Jackson, toured with Jimi Hendrix, and witnessed the dawn of Led Zeppelin. His firsthand storytelling that reflects on the history of rock gives the audience a “You are There” feeling that can only be told by someone who has lived it.

The debut album: Vanilla Fudge was the first of its kind to reach the top 10 on Billboard charts without a hit single. “You Keep Me Hangin’ On” was released one year later and went to #1 on most radio playlists, both in America and all over the World! The psychedelic symphonic rock sound of the band was spearheaded by the Hammond organ & vocal style of Mark Stein. “The Fudge” have been heralded by critics as the doorway between pop music and Progressive Rock. Bands including Deep Purple, Yes, Uriah Heep and even Led Zeppelin have said that Vanilla Fudge had a profound influence on them.

Rolling Stone magazine wrote: “There was nothing, even in 1967, like the 10-ton shock of this Long Island quartet’s cover of the Supremes You Keep Me Hanging On, with the lava-flow sustain of Mark Stein’s Hammond organ…”

Stein has toured and/or recorded, and appeared throughout his career with Dave Mason, Tommy Bolin, Alice Cooper, The Doors, Deep Purple, Rod Stewart, Carl Palmer (in a tribute to Keith Emerson), and Michael Jackson.

The Mark Stein Project will be releasing a new EP & Video to be released in 2018; stay tuned for more details.
