Ray Fuller Band BIO

The Ray Fuller Band was formed in 1974, evolving into Ray Fuller and the Bluesrockers in 1978, releasing a self-titled album on vinyl, and Fuller has not looked back since. Mastering his craft throughout the ’80s and ’90s, Fuller was quick to become the “go to” act throughout Ohio to open for iconic blues musicians such as Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Buddy Guy and more.

MUDDY WATERS after witnessing an opening act performance by Fuller exclaimed for all to hear, “That was some hot slide boy, I could smell the smoke backstage!”
JOHN LEE HOOKER was so impressed that he took Ray Fuller as his special guest at his next show!
FULLER has toured 10 countries, including three very successful Europe tours with plans to return in 2025.
Living Blues Magazine said it best “RAY FULLER AND THE BLUESROCKERS’ performance is the promise of tight, “smokin’ hot” slide guitar, Ray Fuller style, and pure blues entertainment, Ray Fuller style.”

This year the Tennessee Riverboat Company has some changes in ticket pricing. Every cruise ticket (no matter what type) has a “port fee” of $1.50. In addition, if you buy your ticket online, there is an online fee of $1.75. The fee of $1.75 is not charged for buying tickets over the phone with a credit card or in person (credit card or cash).  As usual, sales tax is applied.

We want you to be informed of these incidental changes

We are looking forward to seeing you on the water enjoying our Blues Cruises.
