In some ways, Robert Cray has been a victim of his own mainstream success of the 80s — primarily within the most harshly critical of blues circles. But when he takes the stage, it is absolutely impossible to see or hear what these “scholars” of the sound supposedly do. In short, there is no denying that when he takes the stage, he comes to bring his all and leaves no stone unturned.
On this night in Charlotte, the 5 time Grammy winning Cray was with his band: Tony Braunagel (drums), Jim Pugh (keys) and Richard CousinsÂ (bass).
Photographer Brad Kuntz was on the scene to capture every hard blues riff and soulful note that graced the sold out Neighborhood Theatre crowd.
