Ray the Roadie
Ray the Roadie is the "&" of M & R Rush. He is the person who puts the band together. Because without the "&", there's only MR Rush, which sounds like someone's dad. Doug Rito, Kurt Mardirosian and Paul Housinger will also be on stage.
Always making sure the boys have what they need to put on a Rockin' Show and the crew will work countless hours on and off the stage to make these boys look good. Do you have spat brewing? Before it gets ugly, the crew is there to pinch it in the bud. Is John not getting enough solo time? The next song is "In A Gadda Da Vida" . They sure he gets the right solo for you. Marty has lost his gum, and now is it all overoin his parachute pants? Doug is always with another pair and Kurt has a fresh Bubblicious for him. Paulie's ear monitor has stopped working, but Ray the Roadie has already fixed it before he complains. Is Carl's riser a little wiggly? Paul is there with the toolkit and is sure it doesn't wiggle anymore. Are we out of "Rock and Roll Chicago" T-shirts? We get them back in stock before the show is over.
As you can see, without Ray the Roadie, Doug, Kurt and Paul, there would be no M & R Rush.
