Pianist Ray Malach’s musical ability took him to the Gulf Coast, from the Dixieland Lounge in Pascagoula, MS to Papa Joe's on Bourbon Street in New Orleans, whose sounds became another big influence on his musical style. He later studied music theory and composition at the Philadelphia Musical Academy (now University of the Arts) and attended graduate school at the University of PA. Ray’s career led him to Atlantic City where he served as pianist and arranger. His last continuous engagement there was at the Showboat Casino where he performed for 13 years. A return trip to the South had him playing in Charleston, Atlanta, Hilton Head, and his home base, Cozy O's Cafe, in Myrtle Beach, SC, where he played jazz for 10 years. Now Ray is back home in Philly, where he continues to swing in his own unique way.
