“You gotta keep your ears open and expand your mind.”
– Robert Cray

robert-cray[1]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 its American roots and arrives today both fresh and familiar. In just over 40 years Cray and his band have recorded 20 studio releases, played venues and festivals around the world, received five Grammy Awards, a suitcase full of Blues Music Awards, and induction into the Blues Hall of Fame. His latest release, 4 Nights Of 40 Years Live, celebrates the epic journey that the Robert Cray Band has traveled throughout its extraordinary career.

On Wednesday, April 6, the Robert Cray Band will return to Portland — where it spent a good deal of its early years. They will be performing at Revolution Hall, 1300 SE Stark Street, for a 8;00 pm show. 21 and over only, with tickets available through TicketFly.com for $45.00. Robert Cray has had a huge following in the area since the band’s inception, so pick up your tickets early, as this performance is sure to sell out.
