Welcome

You have arrived at the site of the maximum punk-rock-and-soul group The BellRays. Thanks for stopping by. We've made a few changes and we hope you like them. Please keep visiting us regularly to find out all the news about upcoming shows and recordings. We will also let you know about special and related events.

PUNK FUNK ROCK SOUL - VOL 1 IS FINALLY HERE! 

OMG! PUNK FUNK ROCK SOUL - V1 is finished! Downloads for all previously purchased copies should hit 11/30.

Many apologies to each and every one of our fans that supported our attempts to release this over the summer. We have been working tirelessly on the recording, compiling and distribution of this project that has occupied so much of our creative space over the last half-decade. Mistakes were made and had to be corrected. Tours were cancelled and had to be rescheduled. It seemed to us that we would never find a way to finish everything we needed to and once you miss deadlines it’s easy to fall victim to that way of thinking. Well, we made it past that and have four (4) fabulous tunes to show for it, each genre specific to the title of the EP. Check out the track listing in our MUSIC section on this site.

We were fortunate enough to have two creatives working with us on the business end. Stefan Lit, a.k.a. Stef Litrownik our drummer on BLACK LIGHTNING, mixed both volumes and gave us a great sounding CD. As did Louise Sordoillet with the CD design for both V1 & V2. She is the killer guitarist for the New York Kleps that have opened for us several times. Many thanks to the both of them for sharing.

If you have not ordered a copy of the download I highly recommend you do. We have included track notes and lyrics and images (like the one below) of the physical CD. For those that would like to get the physical release, it will be available 12/15 at our shows and at fine record stores with impeccable taste. Look for V2 February 2018.

TOUR POSTPONEMENT  

Due to circumstances beyond our control The BellRays must regrettably postpone our EU dates from October 4th through November 5th. We would not do so if it were not a matter of personal wellbeing and we hope you will understand and support us and our privacy. We are currently doing everything we can to reschedule the tour and our release for February 2018. 

Those of you familiar with us know that we rarely, if ever, cancel a show, much less an entire tour. Our deepest apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused. Thank you for your support.

PUNK FUNK ROCK SOUL, Vol 1 -Pre-orders ** Update** 

Hello good fans and fellow rockers. We are currently on the road in the Netherlands trying desperately to upload files for the EP unsuccessfully. As soon as we can get the upload completed preorders will be fulfilled. Thank you for your support and understanding.

Begin at the beginning...Sunday-Rock-Day! 

To everyone of you that made it out to the start of our tour, you know we started at the beginning, our hometown of Riverside, California. I am always amazed that no matter how many times I have hit the stage, coming home to play gives me goose bumps. We had a killer bill with Michael Bunuan starting the night off with a few acoustics and then followed by Bucksworth laying down a solid base for a not-so-typical-rock show. We played new songs and had some fun. Thanks to Brian Weatherby for the photo.
