Ray Mar and musical entertainment are words that can be used synonymously. When it comes down to music, fun and talent, Ray Mar can be found at the top of the charts. Ray Martinez, Hall of Fame DJ and Director of Entertainment, in 2013 celebrates his 39th anniversary, providing family oriented entertainment for all ages.

As a top professional, full time DJ/Emcee, a loving Christian Family man, Ray still manages to have time to donate for charitable organizations, such as The St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital for Leukemia, The Frank & Barbara Sinatra Children’s Center, Special Olympics, Angels Care & The Angels Baseball Foundation, Muscular Dystrophy and his personal charity that he fully supports, The Eli Home, a battered children’s shelter, located in Anaheim, CA.
