Ray Areola

Twisted Hams would like to formally welcome Ray Areola to the group. Although Ray Has been playing with the Hams for about a year now, its high time we introduced him to the general public. Ray is an extrodinary guitarist and bass player who has agreed to help the Hams out as a bass player. His driving style lends itself well to the Hams feel and style of music. We are grateful to have him on board. Welcome to the band, Ray, and thanks for being there for us at the right time.
