Bluesman Robert Cray schedules Palace Theatre concert
Grammy Award-winning blues guitarist and singer Robert Cray will play The Palace Theatre in Greensburg on March 13.
The original Robert Cray Band came together in 1974 in Eugene, Ore. Its debut release was “Who’s Been Talkin’” in 1980.
Songs from the 1986 release of “Strong Persuader,” brought the band play on rock stations across the U.S. Singles from that album included “Smoking Gun,” “I Guess I Showed Her” and “Right Next Door (Because of Me).”
During the 1990s, the Cray Band was featured in concert with artists like Eric Clapton, the Rolling Stones, John Lee Hooker, BB King and Bonnie Raitt.
Over the years, Cray and his band have recorded 20 studio releases, 15 of which have been on the Billboard charts. They continue to play venues around the world.
Tickets are $35-$45, with limited Gold Circle tickets available for $59.
Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. for the show at 7:30 p.m.
