Blues Legend, Larry McCray will headline an intimate gathering of friends in Old Town Lansing 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.
