Formed with a passion of the early Rhythms and Blues music of yesteryear, Desley Done front woman for Dezzie D and the STINGRAYZ aims to stay true to those old school sounds of the 40s, 50s and 60s rhythm & blues. Established in 2013 – International, Interstate and regular appearances at venues in their hometown of Brisbane, Dezzie D and the STINGRAYZ have been providing audiences with a unique sight and sound that has become their signature trademark from original music to covered songs from the early Blues, Jazz and Rhythm & Blues eras.
Dezzie D and the Stingrayz have quickly become festival favourites and local personalities with their upbeat music, dynamic vocals, tight grooves and explosive horns. The Stingrayz are providing a fresh, unique and exciting musical experience of ‘Resurrected Rhythm and Blues’ which is captured in a magnificent showcase spectacle of sight and sound that only Dezzie D and the Stingrayz are renowned for.
‘Combining their onstage presence, energy and power-house performances, they will have you leaping out of your skin and transporting you back to the ‘era of the 40s and 50s Rhythm & Blues, Jazz, Jump, Swing and those American Juke Joint Halls’.
