Robert Cray is more than just a blues icon; he's a soulful maestro and a timeless rock and roller. Hailing from Georgia but raised in Washington, Cray's musical journey began after witnessing The Beatles on TV and later being mesmerized by Jimi Hendrix's performance in Seattle. Over the past five decades, Cray has evolved into one of America's most distinctive musical talents.

From his humble beginnings in a garage band to sharing stages with icons like John Lee Hooker, B.B. King, and Eric Clapton, Cray's commitment to his craft has garnered him millions of album sales, numerous Grammy Awards, and inductions into prestigious halls of fame. His breakthrough album, "Strong Persuader" (1986), remains the best-selling blues album of all time.

"I’ve always believed that nothing beats playing live," says Cray, reflecting on his upcoming tour. "Audiences inspire me and my band to reach for the top every night." As he celebrates half a century of leading a rocking band, Cray adds, "It’s been a great ride so far. And the best is yet to come."

Accompanied by his talented bandmates Richard Cousins (bass guitar), Dover Weinberg (keyboards), and George Sluppick (drums), Robert Cray promises an electrifying performance that transcends generations. This event is open to all ages, ensuring that fans young and old can come together to celebrate the timeless magic of American roots music.
