Will Ready – Sounds of Sleeping Bear Concert – July 21, 2011
R&B and Soul singer, Will Ready, has performed in North America, Europe, Japan and The Caribbean and has opened for Chaka Khan, The Temptations, The Whispers and Al Jarreau. He attributes his silky, seductive style to his love for “old school” R&B, Soul, Jazz and hit makers like Smokey Robinson, Luther Vandross, Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Baby Face and Keith Sweat. Will describes his new music as “romantic music with a groove-its food for the soul.” Ready’s live performances invariably turn into dance parties. His infectious energy, joy and deep groove laid down by his excellent band, RMG, make it all but impossible to stay in your seat. When Will Ready plays a club date, his audience quickly becomes part of the act.
Ready lives in Atlanta, Georgia in the winter and Traverse City, Michigan in the summer. Ready’s new music video, “Seduction” was filmed in the restored village sloop on beautiful Grand Traverse Bay in Traverse City, Michigan. Visit Will Ready on his website at www.willready.com.
