Robert Cray Band
In the Grand Event Center
Robert Cray is an American blues guitarist and singer. He has been bridging the lines between blues, soul and R&B for the past four decades, with five Grammy wins and over 20 acclaimed albums.
One music journalist noted "If you define 'blues' by the rigid categories of structure rather than the flexible language of feeling allusion, Robert Cray... is a new and uncategorizable breed, his music blues-like rather than blues, blending ideas and devices from a variety of sources – soul, rock, jazz, gospel – with a sophistication beyond the reach of his forerunners".
He is best known for songs “Right Next Door (Because of Me)” and “Blues Get Off My Shoulder.”
