I can offer two different experiences for you. One is Ray Edward's Blues Express, which is a rockin Blues band, and one is Cold Shot, Michigan's premier tribute to the great Stevie Ray Vaughan. IN Blues Express, we play a mix of classic and modern bluesrock, from Clapton all the way to Jonny Lang and Kenny Wayne Shepherd. In Cold Shot, we work hard to ensure very detail is adhered to, and we play a large sampling of Stevie's catalog along with some of those who played with Stevie, like Hendrix, Clapton, and Buddy Guy. We provide the entire Stevie experience.
Price Range: $500-$2000
Gig Length: 60 - 180 minutes
What to Expect
We provide all of the instruments, stage props, signature guitars, and outfits that are expected of such a band. We can provide our own sound system, but need to know upfront, as we only travel with what we need. This will be a medium volume (can be loud if wanted) show, with all of Stevie's recognizable hits, plus a couple from Jimi Hendrix, Clapton, and Jeff Beck.
Cold Shot is a tribute to the music of guitar legend Stevie Ray Vaughan. While Stevie was an original who nobody can truly match, we pride ourselves in providing the best interpretation, or imitation, that we possibly can. Our show is a celebration of Stevie's music. We include songs he covered, songs we wish he had covered, and songs he played with his brother, Jimmy. If you want to hear and see those great songs played live again, in a true concert format, look no further than Cold Shot, a premier tribute to the music of Stevie Ray Vaughan.
Additional Booking Notes
We will setup in any space, so long as it is big enough for a 3 piece band. We mic every instrument, so If you provide sound we will need to have the ability to run at least 6 microphones. Basic lighting is fine, we also can bring our own if needed. We also will need to have power available at the stage area.
