Smart Bets: Ray Charles Boogaloo Dance Party

Take a moment to wrap your head around this spectacle: "Performing as the voice of Ray Charles, Zach Deputy will pair up with the ultimate groove band and play a funky tribute to a music legend." That legend is Ray Charles. AKA “the only true genius in show business.” Or The Genius, for short. How Deputy, known for his own "island-infused, drum 'n' bass, gospel-ninja-soul" one-man-band will pull that off remains to be seen, but Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe and The Cosmic Horns will be there to get the job done. The soul-spectacular is also a Widespread Panic after-party, held at The Orange Peel on Friday, Nov. 8. 10 p.m., $20/$25. theorangepeel.net.
