The Stateline blues trend continues with another soulful gig at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe, when Robert Cray takes over the venue for a night on Saturday, Dec. 10.
“Open ears and an open mind are the essence of singer, guitarist and songwriter Robert Cray’s approach to writing, recording and playing music. He 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. There are five Grammys with Cray’s name on them, and he has a suitcase full of W.C. Handy blues awards,” states the artist’s online biography.
Cray, a member of the Blues Hall of Fame, is joined by three additional musicians. Together, bassist Richard Cousins, drummer Les Falconer and keyboardist Dover Weinberg make up the Robert Cray Band.
The Robert Cray Band’s latest release was 2010’s “Cookin’ In Mobile,” which features songs like “Chicken In the Kitchen,” “Time Makes Two” and “That’s What Keeps Me Rockin’.”
Cray’s solo career is marked by hits such as “Smoking Gun” and “Right Next Door.”
Tickets for the concert are available at http://www.ticketmaster.com beginning at $52.29, plus tax and fees.
