Robert Randolph & The Family Band
Robert Randolph & The Family Band - "Travelin' Shoes" live at the 2010 Crossroads Guitar Festival
When Robert Randolph & The Family Band perform, audiences are as swept up by the energy on stage as they are are by the bluesy riffs of Robert's pedal steel guitar. The band—made up of four Randolph family members and guitarist Brett Haas—packs each set with rousing, catchy choruses, driving beats, and drawling guitar wails. It all blends into a winning combination of funk and rock, a sound that the president of their label Blue Note Records describes as "equal parts street-corner church and Bonnaroo." He's not the only one taking notice—Randolph's talent inspired the [New York Times](http://gr.pn/Jh4ygf) to remark that songs such as "I Need More Love" brim with a "soulful urgency" and led Rolling Stone to place him on their list of the [100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time](http://gr.pn/Kqp23t).
