Biography

Last Minute came together for the very purpose of the "Out the Box" recording. Aaron Snipes, II (rays “big brother” and mentor) was the first member. Ray and Aaron spent hours in jam sessions after choir rehearsals and church. Most of the songs from this debut DVD were birthed out of these jam sessions.
Ray and Aaron not only shared a spiritual connection, but their musical connection is evident in the tracks from the DVD. Aaron’s ability to write and arrange songs were instrumental in Rays’ desire to produce and record his own live DVD. Kalib "kaleeb" White was the next official member. He played in church with Ray and Aaron so the tight musical bond was there. Kalib is known around South Florida for his gift to produce great music. Ray knew he would provide a great auxiliary sound and add creative taste to the music. Searching for a guitarist was not hard. Ray knew he had to get someone that could pick up the material quickly and was a very strong player so Jeff Deluca was flown in from North Carolina, where he attends college. Jeff and Ray have known each other since middle school playing in the jazz band together. They have grown up together musically as they also attended the same high school where they not only played at school but on outside gigs as well. Ray knew he needed a solid bass player, yet someone very creative and “out the box” with his playing for this recording. He found that with Josh Esther. Ray heard about Josh from a few different people. He was said to be just the man needed to complete the group. The minute they played together, the chemistry was there. Last minute got the name from Ray when he was getting closer to the recording date and all the players weren't final. He blamed himself for doing things last minute, thus the name Last Minute.
