Although Detroit has more than its fair share of 'name' musicians, Bobby Murray probably qualifies as one of the biggest names on the local blues scene – at least by association. Murray has for years served as lead guitar player for blues great Etta James. When he's not working with Etta, Murray fronts his own band here at home. Murray is an outstanding showman who knows how to excite a good crowd, sometimes by walking the bar, other times playing behind his head, other times ... who knows? Backed up by a great three-piece rhythm section plus lead vocalist Lenny Watkins, blues, funk and R&B are all fair game for this crew.
