CAPE GUY - Danny Ray met James Brown at the Apollo Theatre in New York in 1960. Originally from Birmingham, Ray was drafted into the military and, after being discharged, he moved to New York. Ray said he always knew he wanted to work in show business, so he decided to hang out where the action was. He met some people who worked for Brown, and Brown hired him to take care of the band. Soon afterward, Brown asked Ray if he'd like to work directly for him. Ray was Brown's valet, selected his wardrobe and helped him get dressed for shows.
