THE NASHVILLE TEENS - THE BAND 1960's, 20 Sept 2014 [cached]
The band were unusual in that hey retained two lead singers - Ray Phillips and Arthur Sharp.
Ray Phillips has had independent chart successes in Hungary with "This Little Bird", both as a single with The Teens and as a duet with Zalatnay Sarolta. Most recently he was asked to sing it à capela in a church in the town of Pacs during the 2010 GastroBlues Festival.
Some lasting friendships and close relationships grew up between the touring bands in the sixties. The link between The Teens and The Animals was, and remains, strong. Barrie Jenkins eventually moved from The Teens to join The Animals as their drummer, and Ray Phillips has recently appeared as a guest singer with the touring Animals & Friends.
The most recent appearance was Ray Phillips on Never Mind The Buzzcocks in 2000.
Ray was a founder member of the Nashville Teens in 1962, Born in Tiger Bay, Cardiff - Ray grew up in the Addlestone/Woking area of Surrey, where he still lives with his partner Mel, and their four children. Ray's original musical inspirations grew from skiffle and after completing his National Service, which included being stationed in Cyprus and North Africa, he and some friends set up a local band. Very quickly his group merged with another local group, and what had once been rivalry became a solid team with the then unusual format of TWO lead singers. Perhaps the UKs first "Boy Band"!?
Unfortunately Jerry didn't require the vocalists or keyboards, so Ray, Art and John had to sit and watch.
In addition to Ray these were Jim McCarty of The Yardbirds , Eddie Phillips (no relation) of The Creation , and Don Craine and Keith Grant, both of The Downliners Sect.
Ray is unquestionably a great singer and he loves both Rock'n'Roll and slow blues. Hearing his renditions of Red House and Put A Spell On You can send shivers up anyone's spine. He loves singing so much that many of the bands playing in local pubs around the Woking and Weybridge areas of South West London will often invite him up to do a few guest numbers if they spot him in the audience.
Their duets are wonderful, and with numbers such as Little Bird and Black Velvet, they hark back to the ballad singing which Ray enjoys so much. Vanessa has not appeared publicly with the Teens yet, but most of us think it is just a matter of time.
Ray loves the outdoor life, and is one of the nicest and most straightforward guys you could ever hope to meet. When he's not on stage he is happiest out of doors - and he's a real "twitcher" when it comes to spotting wildlife. Like many sixties bands, the demand for performances from The Teens , while still respectable, is no longer enough to pay all the bills, and Ray like many of his friends from the sixtiesnow has a "day job" as well as leading his band evenings and weekends. When off-stage Ray is proud to be a member of the McLaren Racing Team . Consequently the whole band have to stop rehearsals or whatever else they may be doing to watch F1 Grand Prix races - and there is only one team to shout for !

Married first Ray Phillips, a pop singer with the Nashville Teens.
GIG REPORTS, 1 Jan 2012 [cached]
We had travelled up with Mel & Ray Phillips and Jacky & Colin Pattenden to make a long holiday weekend of it, staying at a "forest lodge" super-chalet some twenty five miles from the gig.
Being effectively "the manager" of The Nashville Teens, I had the pleasure of accompanying Ray Phillips to the concert.
The schedule for the Friday was that The Animals would play at 7:30pm on the main stage, with Ray as their guest singer. They would be followed at 9pm by HundredSeventy Split. After breakfast we ( The Animals, Ray and I) retired to Pete Barton's bedroom with a bass guitar borrowed from Leo Lyons - and rehearsed the beginnings and endings of the songs which Ray would sing that night.

After rehearsal Ray and I wandered the town a bit, reminiscing about our last visit there in 2003 - we found the Gastroblues Club, which hosts this annual festival, and went in for a beer.
Ray has had the song " This Little Bird" in the charts three times in Hungary. The last time was 1984, when he topped the charts with a duet with a Hungarian girl singer called Zalatnay Sarolta or "Cini"- a lovely singer who has since become a radio entrepreneur (a sort of Hungarian Chris Evans, but not so tall!) although it ended badly ten years ago when the poor girl was quite unfairly imprisoned for tax evasion. Apparently the Hungarian press for the few days previous to the gig had been rife with speculation that Cini would be appearing at the festival and sing with Ray.
Then they played Suzi Q - that was my cue to find Ray and shove him onto the stage.
Animals with Ray on stage
Pete, Ray, Mick, John S and John W The Animals and Friends Ray opened with Tobacco Road, followed by Google Eye.
It worked OK from an audience point of view, but I could tell Ray wasn't too happy with it.
Then Ray left the stage and the Animals played a few more numbers, ending with House of The Rising Sun. The audience called for an encore and the band returned to the stage with Ray and played Boom Boom - which Ray loved and performed brilliantly even though he had only learned the words in Pete's bedroom that very morning! We all went back to the dressing room and congratulated ourselves on a brilliant gig. Ray and John Steel were in a corner chatting about "the good old times" The rest of us just laughed and drank even more wine!
Ray was scheduled to perform with an acoustic guitarist on the Saturday lunch time, and the guitarist turned up - so they went off to rehearse in a spare dressing room. Meanwhile The Animals were setting off for Italy at 4am the next morning, so they soon had to leave on the bus to get a relatively early night. Meanwhile, the two Andi's blagged their way backstage and came to visit the dressing room, but just missed the Animals. When Ray had finished his rehearsal the four of us got the next shuttle bus back to the hotel to see if we could catch the Animals.
Eventually the girls set off to walk back to their rooms the other end of the town and Ray, Dave and I called it a night.
Leo Lyons, Joe Gooch & his girlfriend; Damon Sawyer, Ray and myself were all still standing.
After breakfast, Ray and I packed our bags and left them at the hotel foyer for later collection before catching the shuttle bus to a beautiful wooden church in Peks.
It was the scene of an acoustic concert and Ray was supposed to go on at noon. However, the Vargas Blues Band weren't all there quite early enough, so Ray went on first and sang Tobacco Road and Google Eye. Then he sang This Little Bird - a standing ovation - the acoustics in the church and his soaring voice were incredible. He followed it up with Spell On You - his own version rather than the one he had sung the night before - no wonder he had been so long rehearsing in that spare dressing room! A fantastic show, after which a whole load of fans were pressing outside for his autograph. A great end to an excellent gig.
VANITY FARE opened their set as skiffle style backing band to LONNIE DONEGAN Jnr . (real name Tony Donegan ) who sounds uncannily like his late father; after which they became a hard driving old school R&B band to back RAY PHILLIPS (NASHVILLE TEENS ). Finally they performed a set as themselves - which was very impressive.
Ray Phillips backed by Vanity Fare Vanity Fare as themselves
Ray and I agreed that we had hairs on the backs of our necks standing up - Tony sounded exactly like his father in all respects, if you shut your eyes you could believe that the King of Skiffle was back among us.
Ray and I both love skiffle so we watched most of the act and I was amazed at how versatile Vanity Fare were in supporting and backing that style of music.
They backed Ray brilliantly, especially Steve Oakman on keyboards who's playing is very reminiscent of John Hawken's style.
At this stage of events I had expected Ray to want to go home - he never watches more than one or two numbers of whatever band follows his act; but tonight he was hooked.
Tonight we had one founder member - Ray Phillips - and of course Colin Pattenden who plays bass guitar for the band had his own share of fame as a founder member of Manfred Mann's Earth Band.
Simon was already at the theatre when Ray, George and I arrived and so were Paul, John and Bob of the New Honeycombs.
Friday 11th March I finished work early and drove to Addlestone to collect Ray Phillips and his son, Wesley, after which we drove almost seventy miles around the M25 and into the east side of London to find The Kenneth More Theatre at Ilford.
Saturday 19th February after a great early evening dinner with Ray & Mel Phillips we all drove up to The Pyrford Sports and Social Club to watch SKELETON CREW playing.
