By 1965, Chicago native Ramsey Lewis and his Trio were topping the charts with such unforgettable and enduring hits as The In Crowd, Hang on Sloopy and Wade in the Water. Ramsey’s talent has been showcased in over 60 albums, earning him three Grammy Awards and seven Gold Records.
His phenomenal music has been entertaining us for more than fifty years. Now, the legendary musician is sharing his gift with a new generation. In 2005, he helped form the Ramsey Lewis Foundation, a program that offers a helping hand to youth through music—providing them with the opportunity to play musical instruments to enhance self confidence and a sense of personal accomplishment.
