Robert Randolph & the Family Band
Apr 9, 2016 at 8:00 PM

With a new label, a new dedication to his craft, and a new sense of responsibility in his life off-stage, Robert Randolph is bringing a new vitality to all of his efforts these days. "I'm still undiscovered, and that's really the best thing about it," he says. "Now we have the chance to present the music right, and have the story told right, and for me to be focused on being an ambassador for inner-city kids and a role model, and also an ambassador for my instrument and as an artist. As all these things happened, it got fun again."
