Blues guitarist and singer Robert Cray's smooth, seductive vocal phrasing and rhythmic R&B stylings have earned him a reputation as a modern blues poet. His signature blend of rhythm and blues, pop, rock, soul, and traditional blues have made him a standout. His latest studio album, This Time, came out in 2009. As ever with Cray's undefinable sound, the music on the disc remains stubbornly beyond category. "Blues is one of the foundations of our music, but it's not all that we play," Cray says. "When I first started playing guitar, I wanted to be George Harrison - that is, until I heard Jimi Hendrix. After that, I wanted to be Albert Collins and Buddy Guy and B.B. King. And then there are singers like O.V. Wright and Bobby Blue Bland. It's all mixed up in there."

Venue Description: A throwback to the fabled days of New York nightclubs, B.B. King Blues Club & Grill features top-caliber music stars and an American Continental menu with a Southern flair. The Showcase Room has video screens and state-of-the-art sound, table seating, a bar where you can snack and listen, and a dance floor. The Beatles Brunch is offered every Saturday at noon (doors at 11am), and doors open for the Gospel Brunch every Sunday at 12:30pm with music at 1:30pm.
