  Enjoy a video from our First Album, Kama Ruby: Straight Up and Chilled.

  We loved covering this Doors song. Guess, what? A Doors tune will be on our new album coming out later this year.  Guess which one it is?

Missing my Mentor, Jerry L. Crawford

Posted on December 29, 2016 at 3:40 PM Comments comments (0)



  2016 not only saw the passing or many artists who were dear to us all, it also saw the passing of my brilliant friend, mentor, teacher, and sometimes counselor (lol), Jerry L. Crawford. I just came across this email from him that references his thought on my second album, Kama Ruby: Rock Dreams in Jazz. I am so glad I still had this in my files. I really miss this man who continued to teach me and guide me long after graduation.

Bravo and thank you.

 

On to many more successes.

A Gnarls Barkley song on accordion? Why that's, uh, Crazy!

Posted on October 22, 2016 at 2:10 PM Comments comments (0)

We've just received some new press about our upcoming benefit concert  at The Padre Hotel. The article below was just published at the following link: Ace's Take

Kama Ruby and the Rough Cuts will be making an appearance at The Padre Hotel on November 4th, 2016. The jazz influenced group will be providing entertainment for a fundraiser that will benefit the Housing & Opportunity Foundation of Kern.

Entitled “Dreaming Beyond the Stars – Une Nuit de Paris,” the French themed evening is the premier gala fundraising event for the organization, a non-profit whose mission is to provide services to the neediest of families, as well as low & fixed income seniors in Kern County.

Attendees will be able to enjoy crepes, French kiss cocktails, and many more surprises.

 

Reasoning that most people would rather have a hand up than a hand out, the Foundation helps to provide tools and education for those in need in Kern County. By supporting this effort, either by attending this event or becoming a sponsor, you will help them become assets not only to their community but also to themselves.

 

A Bakersfield native and graduate of CSUB and UNLV, Ms. Ruby is well known for her unique interpretations of jazz standards as well as imparting a jazzy influence upon classic rock and pop tunes. She is also known for “themed” concerts such as a night of Burt Bacharach songs or performances devoted to artists such as Joni Mitchell.

 

For this event, the group has added several French songs to their set list, including “Ou Vent les Fleurs” (“Where Have All the Flowers Gone?”;) and the classic Edith Piaf song, “Non, Je ne Regrette Rien.” (Film enthusiasts will recognize that as the “kick” song used in the movie, “Inception,” to awaken Leonardo DiCaprio and his associates from their journeys into the world of dreams.

 

As an added attraction and performing for the first time with Ms. Ruby, Bakersfield’s world renowned accordionist Richard Noel will add his distinctive and virtuoso skills to the group. The former CSUB professor and tennis star has attracted a huge following across the world. Earlier this year he traveled to Australia to perform for his fans and wowed audiences there.

 

Completing the powerhouse musical group will be pianist Doug Davis, the former man-in-charge of the Bakersfield Jazz Festival, Mark Meyer on sax, and Glen Fong on bass.

 

In addition to the Piaf song above, attendees will enjoy renditions of other songs not normally heard in the local musical scene, including Grace Jones’ “Libertango” and a duet of Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy,” with Ms. Ruby on vocals accompanied by Mr. Noel on accordion – something one definitely doesn’t experience every day!

 

Activities will start at 6:30 p.m. and end at midnight. Tickets for this charitable event are $125 and available at the following link: Tickets

  2016 did not only see the passing of a few of my favorite artists, but my dear friend, teacher, mentor and sometimes counselor (lol), Jerry Crawford also passed this year. While I was cleaning out my emails, I found this from him. I am so happy I still had it.This was his reponse to my second album that was released in Jan, 2015 titled Kama Ruby: Rock Dreams in Jazz



"Kama:  I now will confess that I am one of those freaks who just never got Jazz.  Sigh. Or Opera.   HOWEVER, listening twice to your c.d., your soulful vocals have enhanced that music for me no end.
