Robert Cray Band
The Robert Cray Band includes Richard Cousins on bass, Dover Weinberg on keyboards and Les Falconer on drums. They are touring the US and UK for the first time since the 2020 release of their album, That’s What I Heard.
“Funky, cool and bad,” is how Cray describes the Grammy-nominated album, produced by longtime collaborator Steve Jordan, who adds, “I thought if we could get this thing that Sam Cooke had, the kind of sound that early Sam Cooke records had, that we could pull that off.
Guitar Player Magazine writes, “Robert Cray doesn’t just make music, he writes history. Over the past four decades, Cray has crafted a sound of American roots, blues, soul and R&B, with five Grammy wins and 20 acclaimed studio and live albums punctuating the Blues Hall of Famer’s career.
Moore has been called “the sexy prototype of neo-retro soul music” with roots in Austin, TX. He’s a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist with the talent, versatility and sexiness of music industry legends. Moore has sold out in over 20 countries, breaking No. 10 on the UK Soul Chart for her latest album, Black Privilege. He won five awards in Dallas, including Best Funk/R&B Group, Best Singer, and Best Album (Black Privilege). Her hit single, Natural Sista, charted at No. 1 on the UK Soul Chart for six weeks.
Performances start at 8 p.m. and doors open at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, September 30. Strauss Square is located at 2389 Flora Street in the Downtown Dallas Arts District.
