Blues icon Robert Cray and his band will be performing at the Hard Rock Casino Vancouver on Saturday, February 21, 2015.
With five Grammy Awards, thousands of sold-out performances and millions of record sales worldwide, Cray is considered “one of the greatest guitarists of his generation”. Rolling Stone credits Cray with reinventing the blues with his “distinct razor sharp guitar playing” that “introduced a new generation of mainstream rock fans to the language and form of the blues” with the release of his 1986 album, Strong Persuader which featured the hit single, “Smoking Gun”.

Since then he has gone on to record fifteen Billboard-charting studio albums and has written or performed with such artists as Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan and John Lee Hooker. His most recent album, In My Soul was released earlier this year and features an inspired collection of original songs along with covers of Lou Rawls, Otis Redding and Bobby “Blue” Bland. Inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2011, Cray is one of the youngest living legends to receive the prestigious honour.
