FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Atara & Ray Van Gobel Website: e-mail:
CALGARY, Alberta, Canada (April 21, 2011) – Mr. Ray is a man on a mission to bring children’s music and entertainment ␣rmly into the 21stCentury. He knows that when kids love a song, they remember it for life and bring it into adulthood to share with their own children. ␣ese songs need to be relevant and interesting to kids, and their parents, so that the experience can be shared and enjoyed as a family. Mr. Rayz ␣rst studio album, ‘Hello World’, was released in January 2011 and supports the live performances he has been oering for more than ␣fteen years. Mr. Ray provides a variety of instruments for children at his shows, so kids can become active participants with ribbon sticks, scarves and rhythm instruments. He loves to embrace his Indonesian roots by playing the krontjong (Indonesian ukulele) and anghklung (a traditional bamboo instrument) in his world music shows. He teaches simple Indonesian phrases such as “selamat datang” (welcome) through his music in a fun and approachable way.
Mr. Ray has been featured on CBC-TV, Shine FM for Hulabazoo at the Calgary Zoo, the City of Calgary StaynPlay program, and has performed at many libraries, schools and preschools. He oers a variety of speci␣c concert or party experiences, plus hands-on classes and workshops featuring unique elements like folk and ragtime ukulele songs from the 1930’s.
When he’s not performing or recording kid’s music, Mr. Ray is testing out new ideas and songs on his wife, two young daughters and his baby son. If they like it, he is ready to take it to a broader audience! Kids don’t beat around the bush. ␣ey know what they like, and Mr. Rayz Music for Kidz provides it by being sophisti- cated, positive,memorable, and easy to groove to.
Based in Calgary, but no stranger to the Vancouver area, Mr. Ray does frequent West Coast Tours throughout the year
