CRUISIN' THRU MIDNITE
RAY CARRION - Latin All-Stars uploaded 10/3/18
Welcome to Chicano Highlights. This is Beto, El Beto-Man with a very exciting guest. Please welcome Ray Carrion. Ray’s Parents were born in Puerto Rico. Ray was the ninth child of a family of ten. After his Father was discharged from the US Army after WW2, the family moved to New York and then to Mid-west. Ray grew up in Loraine, Ohio. By the time he graduated from school, he had become quite the guitar player and decided to pursue music as a career. He graduated from High School in 1980. Ray writes music as well. After a short time, he made a big decision to move to the West Coast.
The Musicians School of Technology is where Ray landed. A great school and Ray did well. He also liked the weather in California, especially during the winter months. After graduating, he landed an unexpected job at the studios in Hollywood, CA. and he is currently working there. Ray used the business learning to continue his musical journey. He played with Peter Criss (Kiss), Victor Pantoja (Azteca 2), Coke Escovido (Santana), and Bobby Espinosa (El Chicano). He later joined El Chicano in 1987.
Ray promotes shows and plays his guitar in several different bands in the Southern California area. He is very active in the performance and recording business. He can be reached on social media at www.RayCarrion.com and on You Tube under Ray Carrion.
