Ray Fuller and the Bluesrockers
- This event has passed.
Guitar Player Magazine stated, “Ray Fuller sounds like Elmore James and Hound Dog Taylor tempered with the rowdiness of George Thorogood.” Natalie’s agrees, and is proud to present Ray Fuller & the Bluesrockers in a very special show to celebrate Ray’s birthday!
As a young 8-9 year old guitarist, Fuller was drawn to the sound of the electric blues guitar that he heard on radio and television. He learned quickly and very well, and several decades later, after paying their dues playing the Columbus bar-band circuit. Ray and the Bluesrockers are a tight, in the pocket band, and are touring nationally and internationally.
Fuller’s talent and strength as a singer and guitarist has allowed him to share the stage with many blues legends, including Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Albert Collins, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Buddy Guy, and The Fabulous Thunderbirds. As an eager student of the blues, these opportunities to hang out and learn at the feet of the masters were not wasted on young Ray; he paid close attention to every pearl of wisdom and every nasty riff and blues lick generously shown to him.
The Bluesrockers consist of harmonicist Doc Malone (who brings a wealth of stage presence with his performances!),and bassist Manny Manuel and drummer Darell Jumper are the driving force behind their tight rhythm section. Or, as Living Blues Magazine exclaims, “Together, they are an unstoppable force of rockin’ blues energy!”
