The Robert Cray Band

Friday, February 16, 2024 @ 8:00pm



William Paterson University - Shea Center for Performing Arts
300 Pompton Rd, Wayne, NJ 07470

Since 1974, The Robert Cray Band has been touring and recording their unique groove, born from a love of Soul, R&B, Gospel, Blues and Rock n Roll. The 50th Anniversary Tour celebrates numerous accolades, including five Grammy wins, 20 acclaimed studio and live albums that punctuate his induction into the Blues Hall of Fame. He also earned the Americana Music Awards Lifetime Achievement for Performance. His 2020 release, That’s What I Heard, celebrates the music of Curtis Mayfield, Bobby “Blue” Bland, The Sensational Nightingales and more, alongside Cray’s own songs.

“Having had the opportunity to play with some of our heroes was more than we could have ever imagined,” says Robert.  “Albert Collins, Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, and the big stages with The Rolling Stones, Tina Turner, and Eric Clapton.”

Cray’s producer Steve Jordan adds, “People gravitate to his guitar playing first, but I think he’s one of the best singers I’ve heard in my life.” 

Robert’s band features Richard Cousins (bass), Dover Weinberg (keyboards) and Les Falconer (drums). The Robert Cray Band has released over twenty acclaimed albums and has sold millions worldwide.  “The Band continues with the same enthusiasm and joy in what we do, and no matter the accolades,” says Robert.  “Today is all that matters!”

Tickets: Gold Circle $65, Orchestra/Front Loge $55, Rear Loge $45
