Michael Ray – CANCELLED

September 29, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PDT

$10
Michael Ray is not your typical blues musician. While steeped in the genre’s tradition, he is clearly the product of a different era. Combining searing guitar and primal vocals with a unique approach to lyrics and consummate musicianship, Ray’s take on blues is influenced by as much by Lauren Hill and The Offspring as it is by Robert Johnson and Stevie Ray Vaughan.
 Picking up the guitar and harmonica as a child, Michael attended a national award winning high school music program where he performed at Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s inauguration and The Monterey Jazz Festival. A commitment to music as a full time career came in 2014, resulting in a rapid ascent through Sacramento’s thriving music scene. What followed was over 200 gigs in countless venues within a year that ended in a Sammie nomination. That momentum continued into 2016, which was highlighted by a sold out EP release, an appearance at Sacramento’s historic Concert In The Park series, and a set opening for blues legend Robert Cray.

The Acoustic Den Cafe

Thank you my friends, for allowing me to host you these past 3 years. Special thanks to those who came to The Acoustic Den Cafe Saturday afternoon. It was a heartfelt pleasure to share some of my music with you (I warned you about my lack of rehearsal.) But you were, as you always have been, gracious and considerate of the musician on stage.

The second to last song that I sang was "As Friends" which I wrote in 1980, inspired by my friend in Chicago. As I said when I announced the song, I added a final verse to the song yesterday morning, dedicated to all of you.

To have understanding, supporting a cause
Accepting shortcomings, accepting the flaws
Ever believing and never deceiving
As friends
Until the end...

Thank you my friends.

One last thing on yesterday, an earring was found on the floor at a table near the door.

Status updates on The Den will be posted.

We couldn't get enough of them, and will follow them. Local Auburn group that has toured in Europe. Fortunately I got their CD! The "Den" is a great place to hang out in a nice atmosphere.

So far I've been to different open mics and Acoustic Blues Tuesdays. It's always a lot of fun. There's a wide range of talent & abilities from people who are helpful, supportive and non-judgemental. P.S. The sliders and chocolate chip cookies are killer!
