Formed in 2013, this rhythm and blues outfit has been performing nonstop to audiences throughout South East Queensland. Resurrecting authentic arrangements from the 40s and 50s Americana, jump, swing, and rhythm and blues, Dezzie D and the Stingrayz draw their influences from artists such as Ruth Brown, Ann Cole, Etta James, performing renditions of music which encapsulates the swingin' good times that has truly shaped the music industry.

These guys hit the stage hard and blowing audiences away with their upbeat resurrected rhythm and blues showcase that will have the crowds jumping. With the recent introduction of the full horn section, this has pushed the band to a whole new level.

Their onstage presence, energy, passion and power-house performances will have you jumping out of your skin and transporting you back to "the era of rhythm and blues".
