Robert Cray Dazzles Variety Playhouse With Bewitching Blues

The evening kicked off with the bluesy chanteuse Shemekia Copland.  Her soul-filled melodies and natural charisma filled the auditorium and provided an electrifying start to the concert. 

And then it happened, Robert Cray, the multiple Grammy award-winning guitarist and Blues Hall of Fame inductee took to the stage.  He and his band received admiring applause as they performing a set of career spanning songs, highlighting some of the gems on his recently released album, In My Soul (2014).

Thank you Farrell Roberts for the great lighting and Todd Magee for keeping the sound in check.  Below are highlights of the evening:
