The 23rd Annual Bayfront Blues Festival kicks off this Friday, and Bluesfest  fans may remember Robert Cray's appearance here several years ago. Seems Robert is only to happy to step up to the plate and fill in. Cool Robert..

The  Robert Cray Band added to the festival's inaugural lineup, following the cancellation of the upcoming Gregg Allman tour.

Upon his doctor's orders, Gregg Allman is unfortunately being forced to cancel his August 26 through September 15 concert dates due to an upper respiratory condition. Treatment is going to involve several days of hospitalization and 4 - 6 weeks of bed rest at home. Allman continues to recover from his successful liver transplant and expects to return to touring in support of his highly acclaimed Low Country Blues album in the late fall.
