Contemporary, Sophisticated, Versatile – these are some of the hallmarks of the talent-rich entertainment professionals within the RayBans four piece ensemble with optional 5th man on sax. The RayBans specialize in smaller venues where band size and available space is a factor.
The RayBans (formerly known as FasTrack) is a smaller Cleveland wedding band with expertise in entertaining audiences in a variety of genres: Contemporary, Motown/Soul/R&B, Disco, Classic Rock, Smooth Jazz, Island & Beach and Country. The band has something that will appeal to each and every one of your guests.
Experience the feel of the Caribbean with the addition of steel drum player Rich Maurer, as the band performs special Island themed selections.
Supplemented by professionally produced backing arrangements that replicate the original recordings, The RayBans create a “full band” sound while utilizing only five performers. This unique approach distinguishes The RayBans as a diverse, professional and entertaining live act, providing as much “entertainment value” as other ensembles much larger in size.
The RayBans features:
DD Magdalena: Lead Vocals
Dennie Hall: Lead vocals/Guitar
Craig Douglas: Drums/Congas/Vocals
Dave Allen: Sax/Congas/Vocals
Rich Maurer: Steel Drum/Percussion/Vocals
We hired the RayBans for our wedding and there is only one word to describe the band as well as the customer service from Scott at CLE Music Group: Amazing. Craig from The RayBans was so easy to deal with, made us feel as if this was the only wedding he did all year and was an absolute professional. To be honest, we were nervous, they weren’t one of the higher price tags on the site and they didn’t have a ton of gigs that we could go see. We did not get to see them prior to our wedding due to timing but Scott from CLE Music group put his name on the line for them and I am glad he did. The 5 piece we got was amazing, beautiful voices, and throughout the night I had to convince myself that they were a band and not just playing the music via iPod. I recommend the 5 piece highly, they truly were…amazing.Zachary and Heather MarcusSep 19, 2015English Oak Room

I just wanted to send a quick thank you for doing such a great job last night. Everyone really enjoyed the music, was out dancing and having a great time.You were also able to adjust really quickly when the rain started, which was impressive. I don’t feel like it affected much at all, which was great. Thanks again, and we will definitely think of FasTrack in the future.Sally Hughes (Anne Hughes & Richard Wright)Jul 17, 2010Glidden House
