In his home state of Michigan, Rusty Wright was hailed as the most compelling blues rock act to emerge from the state in a decade, receiving accolades from Buddy Guy, Charlie Musselwhite; W.C. Clark; members of Lynyrd Skynyrd and Molly Hatchet, and even Question Mark of the 1960s iconic band Question Mark & the Mysterians.
"You don't need to take ---- from anybody. You're great."
~Buddy Guy, Kennedy Center Honors recipient
“Rusty you guys were smokin' tonight. Bravo!”
~Charlie, Musselwhite, Grammy Award winning blues artist
"They were awesome. Easy to work with and great people
You won't be disappointed. We certainly weren't!"
~Kevin J. Barry, Bonita Blues Festival
"Rusty Wright gained a whole slew of new fans with his
smokin’ hot guitar and great blues songs. His stage
manager Bob Willie said it ranked in his Top 10 acts of
all-time at the Unum Stage."
~Bob Payne, entertainment editor, The Chattanoogan
Rusty Wright is a masterful lyric storyteller who ignites his musical tales with world class fretwork. This Billboard Top 10 artist's innovative sound is a hot rod fusing of Texas and Chicago-style blues; swinging boogie & Southern rock.
Wright’s song lyrics run the gamut. Ballads like Trouble’s Always Knockin follow the traditional Blues path, while the powerful No Man is an Island was inspired by a story about an autistic child. Black Hat Boogie is a high-energy ode to computer hackers and the tongue-in-cheek Alarm Clock Blues pays homage to the ‘single most nefarious gadget invented by the mind of man’.Following a several year hiatus from heavy touring due to caregiver responsibilities, Rusty and Laurie Wright now perform 200 dates a year in Florida and are ready to once again undertake national & international tour dates to support their 2020 album release Hangin’ at the DeVille Lounge.
“Dude – Where the hell did YOU come from?”
~Rickey Medlocke, Guitarist, Lynyrd Skynyrd
“We Love you and Rusty! We hope to have you at Torre
Alfina Blues Festival more and more times!”
