Reared in a fertile musical environment that included spinning his auto plant worker dad's vast collection of vintage blues records and playing guitar in his mother's touring gospel group at 13, Rusty Wright knew from an early age what he was born to do. His decades or writing, recording and performing led him to form The Rusty Wright Band in 2004.

Their discography includes five original albums with his 2015 release "Wonder Man" achieving Top Ten status on the Billboard Blues Charts as well as being nominated for Album of the Year by Vintage Guitar Magazine alongside Jeff Beck, Joe Bonamassa, David Gilmour of Pink Floyd and Sonny Landreth.

The band's sound seamlessly assimilates everything from hints of early prog-rock to the intricate harmonies and counter-rhythms of the Allman Brothers; the passion and flamboyance of SRV to the cool riffs and right-in-the-pocket grooves of Chicago blues guitarist Hubert Sumlin. It's all blended with the forthright, honest nature of Wright's plight-of-the-common-man lyrics which are partly the product of growing up in an auto industry town that's been ravaged by circumstance and time.

Join us on June 9 at 8 p.m. as we kick off our Blues Weekend with The Rusty Wright Band.
