2010 Blues & Arts Fiesta to Feature Gregg Wright

Sometimes you have to wonder how a great fund raising event can bring out the best in people. In this case the “Ambassador for the Blues” Mr. Gregg Wright will be gracing our stage at the Blues and Arts Fiesta this March in San Felipe Baja!

Just coming back from a European Tour, Gregg Wright has found time in his touring schedule to perform at this worthwhile fundraising event to be held Saturday March 27th in our San Felipe stadium.

In the 1970’s Gregg did a Southern States tour playing one night stands and sharpening his guitar skills with some skilled musicians. Later, and during some of those years, he became well known as an “A-List” session guitarist. He recorded and performed with Mick Fleetwood, Michael Jackson, (his Thriller Tour), the Gap Band, Eric Clapton, Muddy Waters, Jimi Hendrix, Ike Turner, Santana, and Stevie Ray Vaughn. Even B.B. King wanted his talent for playing blues guitar.

Gregg Wright has an international fan base and the British Music Press dubbed him “The King of Rockin’ Blues Guitar”. The man fuses rock and blues together and not just with typical licks but with blues from the gut; the type that keeps the crowd movin’ and beggin’ for more. He won’t duplicate other famous musician musical styles. He is quoted as saying “I’m gonna sing my post-atomic digital reality!”

Fame has not impressed him over the years. He has ridden that train with some of the best and recognized that fame doesn’t make his music better. Gregg started his own record company label called Left Hook Records because he wanted to control his own product and his own destiny.

Gregg Wright is a featured soloist on the IMAX film soundtrack “Ocean Oasis” where he performed with the Prague Philharmonic. You will not be disappointed listening to a man who has made his life his music! What a thrill it will be to hear him play by our glorious ocean and ideal venue! Get your tickets as soon as possible.
