Stanley Bronstein Interviews Rusty and Laurie Wright


In 2004, Michigan guitarists Rusty and Laurie Wright put together the first incarnation of the group that would become the Rusty Wright Band. Both were veteran musicians, but it was only the band’s second show together when they opened for Lynyrd Skynyrd, a performance which garnered them a standing ovation and prompted Skynyrd guitarist Rickey Medlocke to exclaim “Dude – where did YOU come from?” Then in their early forties, the husband/wife team dedicated themselves to proving there is no expiration date on fulfilling an artistic dream.

Fast forward nine years: Three acclaimed studio albums, an album of live cuts culled from several years of live concert mixes, two concert DVDs, successful international tours, headliner status on well over half of their concert and festival performances, and a national TV debut on an hour-long syndicated PBS concert program that has aired repeatedly across the country for more than a year. The Rusty Wright Band has made the leap from regional favorite to enjoying international recognition and wowing audiences on three continents.
