Pimptown is an eclectic group of New York City musicians who bring originality and a fresh perspective to cover tunes as well as underived compositions. They hail from different boroughs but call Brooklyn their home. Their sound is like no there and their desire is to bring joy to everyone. Our lead singer, Sheldon Ray, hails from Brooklyn, NY. A dynamic singer with great range you can hear brushes of James Brown, Michael Jackson, Prince and even Freddy Mercury in his nuanced singing. Some of his notable accomplishments include, backing up Regina Belle and Elle Varner. Sheldon also toured with an off Broadway production of “Your arms too short to box with God.” He is also featured on “Hand of God” the last track from Jon Bellion’s, “The Human Condition” album. Sheldon also released his single “In The Cut” in 2017 which has been making waves since that time. Our drummer, Donald “DonJay” is a native of SouthSide Jamaica Queens. As the heartbeat of the band he lists his influences as Nathaniel Townsley, “Lefty” Leroy Thompson, Thomas Pridgen, Earth Wind and Fire and Snarky Puppy. Don is probably the most experienced member of our band having played his 1st gig at the age of 6 for the lady of congress Cynthia Jenkins. He has also played with artists such as Ashanti, Meli’sa Morgan, Erykah Badu, Evelyn Champagne King and Donnie McClurkin. Our guitarist, Anthony “Antman” is from the Bronx, NY AKA “The X.” Ant is well versed in soul, funk, blues and R&B but can shred on rock and roll also. He is proud to say that his uncle Michael Griffin was his first teacher and initial influence but he also has incorporated the sounds of Willie Brown Jr., Jonathan DuBose Jr., and Chris Payton to name a few. Some of the notable artists that Anthony has performed with Bridget Kelly, Lumidee, Me’lisa Morgan, Melba Moore and Lipstick Gypsy. Our bassist, Nathaniel is from Sunny Side Queens. As our resident jazz connoisseur he is versed on upright and electric bass..n hear shades
