Five-time Grammy Award-winning Robert Cray Band performs live in concert at the Downey Theatre Saturday, March 11, at 8 p.m.
Robert Cray has created a sound that rises from American roots and arrives today both fresh and familiar. In just over 40 years Cray and his band have recorded 20 studio releases, 15 of which have been on the Billboard charts, and played bars, concert halls, festivals and arenas around the world.
Cray is considered to be one of the most expressive vocalists and impressive guitarists on the contemporary rhythm and Blues scene drawing from R&B, rock, pop, and jazz.
Cray’s musical resume reads like a who’s who in contemporary music. He’s played with a cross section of greats from a multitude of genres, including Chuck Berry, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, and Tina Turner among others, and mentors like John Lee Hooker and B.B. King. These unique collaborations cement Cray’s unique status as an artist who bridges the gap between R&B, Blues and rock.
Four years ago Cray was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame.
