About Robert Cray Band

After seeing legends Albert Collins and Muddy Waters in concert, Robert Cray was inspired to pursue musical professionally. He started playing local shows with his band, and by 1983 he had released his first album with Hightone Records, "Bad Influence." Although the album has gone on to sell over a million copies, it wasn't until his 1986 album, "Strong Persuader" when he became a huge star. The album was a sensation, and helped Cray break into the mainstream. The album has been certified 2x platinum, and it was listed as one of the 100 greatest albums of the 80s by Rolling Stone.

After the release of his phenomenal record "Strong Persuader," Robert Cray was invited to join Eric Clapton on tour, and he was also featured in the Chuck Berry film, "Hail! Hail! Rock 'N' Roll" in 1987. Throughout the years to come, Robert Cray played with the likes of John Lee Hooker, Bob Dylan, and Cream, and he also played at the Guitar Legends concerts in Spain. He remains a fixture in American rock and roll, and continues to tour. His influence on the contemporary blues movement is undeniable, which is evidenced by his induction into the Blues Hall of Fame. His album "Strong Persuader" also enjoyed a lot of play on MTV, which allowed him to reach a wider audience than ever before. In fact, he is credited with introducing a younger generation of rock fans into the blues genre by breaking into the mainstream. Because of this, he helped to reinvigorate the genre, and blues as we know it today has Cray to thank. Because of his incredible talent and contributions to music, Robert Cray and his band are a delight to see in concert for any fan of blues and rock and roll.


Robert Cray Band's Breakthrough Album

Robert Cray exploded onto the mainstream with his unforgettable record, "Strong Persuader." The album, which later earned him the nickname Strong Persuader, was certified 2x platinum, and produced the hit song "Smoking Gun," which made it to the number 2 position on the Mainstream Rock Tracks, and number 22 on the Billboard Hot 100. The success of "Strong Persuader" paved the way for his future success, and he later won five Grammy Awards for Best Contemporary Blues Album in 1987, 1988, and 1999, and Best Traditional Blues Album in 1986.
