Grammy Award-Winning Blues Group, The Robert Cray Band, Returns to The Orleans Showroom Jan. 23-24
Renowned rhythm and blues musician Robert Cray and his band will perform at The Orleans Showroom Jan. 23-24.

Formed in 1974 and based in the Northwest, The Robert Cray Band played gigs in Portland and Eugene, Ore., before branching out farther on the west coast, including Seattle and the San Francisco area. Early on, the band toured with electric blues guitarist Albert Collins, and by 1983, the group was sharing the stage at Carnegie Hall with the likes of John Lee Hooker and Willie Dixon.

Credited by “Rolling Stone” with reinventing the blues with his “distinct razor-sharp guitar playing,” Cray “introduced a new generation of mainstream rock fans to the blues” with his album “Strong Persuader” in 1986.

Since then, Cray has recorded 16 Billboard-charting albums and received 15 Grammy Award nominations, of which he won five. In 2014, The Robert Cray Band released the album “In My Soul,” which spent 20 weeks on the Billboard Blues Albums chart, peaking at #1.

Known for more than just his guitar skills, this multi-talented singer, songwriter and producer has played with a cross-section of legendary musicians, including Chuck Berry, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton and Tina Turner.

Cray was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2011. At 57, he was one of the youngest living recipients of the prestigious honor. The members of The Robert Cray Band include Les Falconer on percussion, Dover Weinberg on keyboards and Richard Cousins on bass guitar.

The show begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are available starting from $29.95, plus tax and fees, and can be purchased at any Boyd Gaming Box Office by calling 702.284.7777 or visiting www.orleanscasino.com.
