Bert Wray Blues
Bert Wray Blues is a blues rock band from Charlotte NC. The band formed in 2016 with slide-guitarist/singer Bert Wray, drummer Mitch Cooper, and bassist Dave Wall.
The music merges the vintage juke joint blues sound with plenty of Carolina twang and original songwriting. Equally inspired by Delta blues pioneers, rockabilly cats, and 1960’s blues-rockers, the trio hits the sweet spot between classic blues and good ol’ rock and roll. Their innovative twist on the blues places them in a camp with recent bands like the Black Keys and Jack White.
The band has released albums Gut Bucket Radio (2017), Hometown Hostage (2018), and Cyborg Juke Joint (2022).
The live performance schedule has included such bluesy venues as Smokey Joe's Cafe (Charlotte NC), The Blue Note Grill (Durham NC), and many more dive bars, rock clubs, breweries, and festivals in the South East. Bert Wray Blues has also performed events for the Charlotte Blues Society and the Triangle Blues Society.
