Guitar Phenom Ray Goren Just Added to Real Blues Festival of Orange County 2





         (SANTA ANA, ORANGE COUNTY, CA) – 10-year old Orange County-based prodigy Ray Goren has been added to the lineup of the Real Blues Festival Of Orange County 2. The Orange County-based youngster came to the attention of Real Blues founder Papa J while he was performing live recently on Dr. Barry’s Traveling Medicine & Blues Show heard each Sunday over KOCI 101.5 FM. Ray will be performing  at Real Blues Festival 2
(his first-ever live performance in Orange County) with longtime L.A.
blues keyboardist, Deacon Jones. A brief bio. of Ray Goren:

Goren started playing guitar about two and a half years ago at the age
of 8. Ray discovered the Blues when he was searching on YouTube and
inadvertently typed “BB” instead of “JJ”, stumbling on a B.B. King video
clip. Ray was mesmerized and within hours was listening to Albert King,
B.B .King, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Eric Clapton and others. For the days and
weeks that followed Ray spend hours listening to blues while begging
his parents for a guitar.

days of getting his first guitar Ray was actually playing the Blues. It
was as if he had reconnected with a long-lost friend. Six months later
Ray played live for the first time, sitting in with Harmonica player
Mason Casey who spontaneously called Ray to the stage. Since then Ray
has been a regular on the Southern California Blues scene. He has played
twice at the House of Blues in Hollywood; has appeared twice on
Foxxhole with Jamie Foxx at the Conga Room; appeared at the KJAZZ Long
Beach Blues Festival; and at numerous local venues. He has also
participated in the local Blues society’s annual “Six String Show Down”
with other top guitarists based in Southern California. 


months ago Ray was invited to sit-in with Hammond B3 Legend Deacon
Jones (band leader for Freddie King and John Lee Hooker). Since then,
Ray has become a regular part of Deacon’s band. The connection between
Ray and Jones illustrates the power of Blues music by defying age and
time.  Deacon is convinced that Ray has been here before because “no kid
can play the Blues like Ray.”
