Soulful rhythm and a true love for music have undoubtedly established Keith "Drums" McCray as a professional musician.

Determined to succeed, Keith served his church; mastering his craft and developing his character. 
Phenomenally professional character coupled with his skillful ability to drum beats that make the crowds move is simply remarkable. His gift has certainly made room for him on the world stage; playing for artist to include Swiss Beats, Ryan Leslie, and John Mayer. Keith is Grammy nominated and has toured the world with two time Grammy nominee Ryan Shaw; opening for artist Van Halen, Herbie Hancock, Jill Scott, and Joss Stone to name a few. Keith's obsession for perfection keeps him playing even when his is not on the road at well' know clubs here in the New York- Tri State area to include Joe's Pub, the Sugar Bar, The Village Underground, Cafe Wha, and the Blue Note.
