PURE ACOUSTIC MUSIC OF BLUEGRASS INFLUENCE AND INSTRUMENTATION
AirCargo is a showband with interesting acoustic music featuring 3-part vocals and lightning-fast instrumentals. All of the members have played music their entire lives with a combined 125 years of stage experience. Ray Cargo, originally from Amarillo, plays a strong and heart-pumping electric stand-up bass and delivers his songs, both originals and covers, with unparalleled soul and distinction. Kevin Willette, originally from El Paso, is a master of mandolin and banjo (plays everything), a gifted songwriter/vocalist, and creates many of AirCargo's musical arrangements-- and humor. Randy Collier, a 7th-generation Texan, is a craftsman on the guitar, creates a full and rhythmic backdrop to AirCargo music, inserting spontaneous flatpicking and provides strong lead and backup vocals. New fans of AirCargo comment about the high quality of their music, one fan recently proclaiming, "You guys are true artists"!
