BLUES & AMERICANA AT ITS BEST
Rusty Wright is the leader. lead guitarist and lead vocalist of the Rusty Wright Band. Along with his rhythm guitar, vocalist wife, Laurie LaCross-Wright, Dave Brahce on keyboards, Andy Barancik on bass guitar and Pete Haist on drums they have been turning heads now for a few years.
I got to witness their full-on blues explosion at this years International Blues Challenge. Having shared billings with the likes of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Etta James and Charlie Musselwhite, you know this is a tight unit.
We will chat with Rusty (and maybe even Laurie) about their journey, their soon to be released album RWB3 and we will hear music from their past two albums Playin With Fire and Ain't No Good Life.
Then I sit with Ms. Gina Sicilia,a young woman from the Philadelphia area who exploded onto the blues scene in 2008 when she was nominated for “Best New Artist Debut” at the Blues Music Awards. She has performed on the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise and will be making her way to Memphis for this year's BMAs.
Her 3rd release, "Can't Control Myself", dropped March 1st on the VizzTone Label Group and we will get to hear selections from this great album.
Join me as I introduce you to musicians you should know.
