Rusty Wright Blues Band
Throughout the history of showbiz, there have been married couples who have shared the stage together. Add to that list the names of Laurie and Rusty Wright, of the Rusty Wright Blues Band (RWB) from Flint, Michigan.

When Rusty was called upon to fill in for the guitarist for the band Laurie was playing with (so her band could honor contracts to which they were committed), Rusty and Laurie discovered they also enjoyed working together. After chasing the elusive dollar by playing the music they were playing at the time, they progressed to the musical magic that they knew they could share: they decided to play the blues.

That, you could say, was the beginning of the rest of their story. They are making beautiful music together.

Check out David King's entertaining and informative interview with Rusty and Laurie Wright, Rusty Wright Blues Band: I Ain't From Mississippi at AAJ today!

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
