The son of a blues record-collecting father and a gospel-singing mother, Flint Michigan-native Rusty Wright has spent decades on the road and in the recording studio honing his singular take on improvisation-heavy blues rock. The sound of The Rusty Wright Band assimilates everything from hints of early prog-rock to the intricate harmonies and counter-rhythms of the Allman Brothers along with 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, partly the product of growing up in an auto industry town that’s been ravaged by circumstance and time. Formed in 2004, the band’s 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 latest album, “Hangin’ at the DeVille Lounge,” presently occupied the #4 spot on the Billboard Blues Album Chart for the week of 10/29/22.

Online advance ticket sales end at midnight the night before the show.

Day-of online ticket sales end at 3pm on show day. Walk-up tickets sales begin 30 minutes before doors.
