The Robert Cray Band 

When: Wed., March 11, 8 p.m. 2015
Price: $30.50-$45
When blues singer-guitarist Robert Cray came through town in 2013, we asked him how he felt about being labeled a "blues" artist when his music clearly crosses over into other genre. "People can look at us any way they want to — just as long as they look at us," he said. "The ‘80s, you had some MTV and radio play. The MTV thing was a new boost for folks making music in that era. But at that time with everything else that was happening around you musically, it seems like it could have been a difficult time to be in a band and get attention doing what you do. All of that stuff was going on, but at the same time the door was wide open for bands like ours and Los Lobos and the Fabulous Thunderbirds and the Blasters and Stevie Ray Vaughan and all of that." Cray is currently promoting last year's In My Soul, another album that features his phenomenal guitar playing ability. (Niesel)
