Blues Legend Larry McCray and special guest Tony Purifoy
Blues Legend, Larry McCray will headline an intimate gathering of friends with special guest Tony Purifoy.

McCray, 58, was born in Arkansas and moved with his large family to
Saginaw in 1972. For years he balanced working full-time on a General Motors
assembly line with his budding musical career. He finally committed to music fulltime
25 years ago and issued the first of nine albums. His hard-rock guitar playing
combined with soulful vocals continues to attract legions of fans worldwide.

The second youngest of nine children, McCray credits older sister, Clara, as
his greatest musical influence. She gave him his first guitar at age 12 and taught
him how to play. He formed his first band with brothers Carl (on bass), Steve (on
drums) and nephew Tony Purifoy (vocals), Clara's son. The band broke up when
Larry signed his first recording contract, although younger brother Steve has
stayed with him.

Purifoy has performed with several premier soul and funk bands which have
opened for The Commodores and KC and the Sunshine Band. He brings a high-energy
style of soul, funk, and R&B to every performance.
