Joining Bryn will be Ray and Friends comprised of Harold “I Never Had It So Good” Kimble on the Sax, Joe Guest on the Guitar, Randal Martin on the Drums, Jose “Tito” Alvarez on the Latin Drums, Rusty on the Bass, and Ray Watkins on the Keys.  Rounding off this talented card will be inspirational dancers known as Sisters of Glorious Praise, led by Linda Molina.
