Blues at the Beach with B.B. King and guests
July 13, 2014
For more than half a century, Riley B. King – better known as B.B. King – has defined the blues for a worldwide audience. Since he started recording in the 1940s, he has released over fifty albums, many of them classic, and featuring hits like “The Thrill Is Gone,” “Rock Me Baby,” “Baby I Love You” and “Lucille.” "The King of Blues" has been bestowed fifteen Grammy Awards by his peers, including the Grammy "Lifetime Achievement Award" and has been inducted into the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame. Joining King for Blues at the Beach will be virtuoso pedal steel guitarist Robert Randolph and his long time accompanists, The Family Band. Robert Randolph and The Family Band continue to tour in support of their 2013 release Lickety Split, an album that showcases the unique chemistry of the Family Band—comprised of the guitarist's actual family members. Also on bill is two-time GRAMMY® nominee Shemekia Copeland.
