Dave Ray Avenue!
The St. Paul City Council has approved the naming of a segment of Franklin Ave. in St. Paul, MN to be "co-named" Dave Ray Ave. in honor of the legendary blues musician. The segment of street between Berry and Eustis is the location of the offices where he sold insurance and many musicians would crash over the years.
This is all a part of the celebration of Dave Ray with the release of the 3-CD collection Legacy and the big tribute show on November 9th at the Minnesota History Center with 'Spider' John Koerner, Tony Glover, Charlie Parr, Bingham & Thorn, and more!
