Kevin Moore, in short, is Keb’ Mo’, a three-time Grammy-winning singer-songwriter and California native whose true blues roots might as well sink deep into the Mississippi River. The most casual fans might recognize his theme song to the hit CBS comedy, “Mike & Molly,” while the die-hards have been tracking him since 1980, when he released his debut album, “Rainmaker” under his birth name. More than three decades later, Mo’ is touring to promote his 13th album, "The Reflection," which continues to offer his signature blend of blues, jazz, R&B and soul.

When: 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20

Info: The Bardavon Theater, 35 Market St., Poughkeepsie; 845-473-2072; www.upac.org; $44-$64
