Colleen Raye is from a very music-oriented family and she carried on the tradition by going to college and majoring in music. After winning the “Horace Heidt Jr.” talent contest in St. Paul, MN, at 19, Colleen began performing with the “Donnie Sanders Show”, a nationally touring night club act. Soon after, Colleen met Steve Grimm, a former “New Christy Minstral” and international performer. They combined their talents to create “The Steve Grimm and Colleen Raye Show”, a successful night club show band. Colleen developed a stage show of Patsy Cline music and several other formats, and forged her own music career not only as a vocalist but also a vocal and performance coach, producer and composer.
