The Robert Cray Band to Lay Down the Blues
at River Rock Casino Resort
Blues icon Robert Cray and his band will be performing at the River Rock Casino Resort on Friday, March 3, 2017.
With five Grammy Awards, thousands of sold-out performances and millions of record sales worldwide, Cray is considered “one of the greatest guitarists of his generation”. Rolling Stone credits Cray with reinventing the blues with his “distinct razor sharp guitar playing” that “introduced a new generation of mainstream rock fans to the language and form of the blues” with the release of his 1986 album, Strong Persuader which featured the hit single, “Smoking Gun”.
Since then he has gone on to record fifteen Billboard-charting studio albums while writing and performing with such artists as Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan and John Lee Hooker. His most recent album, 4 Nights of 40 Years Live was released last year and features both new live recordings and live cuts from Cray’s archives including a 1982 performance at the San Francisco Blues Festival.
Inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2011, Cray is one of the youngest living legends to receive the prestigious honour.
