Friday, January 31: Catfish Kray Blues Band. 8 p.m. Boulder Outlook Hotel & Home of the Blues, 800 28th St., Boulder, 303-443-3322.
Since its debut in 1997 this Colorado blues ensemble has thrilled almost every venue in Denver, and its 2009 CD Splash has garnered international airplay. Influences include Albert Collins, Robert Jr. Lockwood and Joe Walsh. Live shows remain the group’s specialty. Twangy slide guitar and some added soulfulness with the recent addition of gospel singer Larea Edwards challenge the audience to resist dancing once they start!
