Kurtis White began his showbusiness career in one of the most popular soul and funk party bands in the UK. He performed with the fabulous 'Mark's Brothers' as percussionist and vocalist, touring the UK and Europe.
Kurtis has also performed with some excellent tribute shows such as Maxine Mazumder's tribute to Dusty Springfield and Lulu, and Buzz D'Angelo's unique portrayal of the Godfather Of Soul, James Brown. He is currently touring the larger theatres of the UK in an exciting tribute to the Blues Brothers with the official Jake and Elwood Blues featuring the Black Rhino Band.
Ray Charles broke down the barriers of sacred and secular music, fused elements of gospel, jazz and blues together and mixed it with a fiery, fervid style that would come to be known as soul music. The same powerful gospel/jazz/blues mix would create the very foundation for rock and roll.
Kurtis's interpretation of the genius Ray Charles is second to none and will have any audience tapping their feet, singing along and getting down on the dance floor!
