Robert Cray is right.  I heard him about a month ago and it was a great show.  He is an amazing guitar player.

Albert Collins?

Sorry, not Albert Collins.  I'll admit to not knowing him either until I saw this photo with Robert Cray.  Here is some info I found about him:

Hall of Fame, Blues icon ______________ dazzles audiences with both his showmanship and special brand dubbed Folk Funk. Constantly evolving, his show evokes the nostalgia of Vaudeville while rendering a current high energy performance. According to the Blues Foundation,' he is the only performer to ever receive The Blues Foundation's Blues Music Award in both Soul Blues Artist and Acoustic Blues Artist in the same year. This shows the extent of his versatility and the extent of his popularity. Though his career dates back to the post-war Chicago, in recent years, he has become a mainstay at the Blues Music Awards, garnering 30 nominations since 1997.'  _____________ has performed in every major market in the world. In 2007, he became the first Blues artist to perform in China, garnering an audience of over 40,000

From left to right.... James Taylor & Robert Cray. Those Matchless amps do help part of my guess, and I MEAN guess. For all I know, I might be half right. Who knows. ???
