Bert Wray Blues


Charlotte, NC

Bert Wray – Slide Guitar/Lead Vocals
Dave Wall – Bass Guitar
Mitch Cooper – Drums

Bert Wray Blues brings together slide-guitarist/singer Bert Wray with drummer Mitch Cooper and bassist Dave Wall. The band’s music merges the vintage juke joint sound with plenty of Carolina twang and fresh songwriting. Equally inspired by Delta blues pioneers, rockabilly cats, and 1960’s blues-rockers, the trio hits the sweet spot between classic blues and good ol’ rock and roll.

Mixing the past with the present is what it is all about at Bert Wray Blues. The trio emerged from the players’ deep North Carolina musical roots. In fact, Mitch once signed Bert’s band to his Third Lock Records back in the alternative music revolution! Dave and Bert met while working in a greasy kitchen, and they bonded over their record collections and blues guitars. It was inevitable that these guys would one day join forces to create Bert Wray Blues.

Bert Wray Blues‘ new album, Gut Bucket Radio, will be release on March 10th.  The band will from there be taking their blues message to stages all across the Carolinas and beyond.
