The International Blues, Blues/Rock &"real" R&BReview Magazine(used by permission)       GREGG WRIGHT  @ THE TAWE DELTA BLUES CLUB, SWANSEA, U.K. Gregg Wright is no stranger in these parts - he's welcomed onto the stage by a full house, and I mean full house! The place is awash with people! He's given a hero's welcome, and sets about bringing the house down in no time at all. This man is not given to gentle introductions or formalities - he's straight down to business and his business is Rockin' Blues! If you like your Blues dosed up in  easy to swallow chunks, don't bother coming. Gregg's medicine is served up in massive infusions straight into the jugular. Overdoses are regular and the poor victims are seen staggering down the stairs at intervals, and at the end of the evening's session. There's no antidote available at these gigs so I'm afraid to say that victims have to "cold turkey" it out, post performance! His rhythm section maintain the high octane performance demanded by the Schumacher of Blues. Musicians in the audience had eyes like kids in Toys 'R' Us just before Christmas. Several surreptitiously played air guitars during some of the numbers and were singing along to many a song and psalm from the Gregg Wright Book of Hymnals. His set contains a nice mix of golden Blues oldies, stirred in with several numbers off his CDs. I tell you, the crowd not only likes this guy, they love him! Gregg hung around to sign  several autographs and posters for the admiring crowd. This, I believe, is his only stop over in Wales and audience and band made the most of it. Next year we will have to get a few more venues sorted for him. Another great night. And by that I DO mean as great as Queen Elizabeth I, Winston Churchill, Isaac Newton......Diane Gillard - Sister Feelgood ” - Sister Feelgood

Blues Matters

THE BLUES & SOUL FESTIVAL July 1-2, Skopje, Macedonia  As is always the case, this year's edition of the festival was a huge success, due to an excellent choice of musicians  who did a great job and  confirmed their high status in the blues hierarchy. Weather conditions were great and Blues fans enjoyed every moment of the proceedings, not to mention the cold beer! We are talking about July!  The Festival's natural closer was Gregg Wright and his band. What a musician and what credentials he has! He played 75 concerts as Michael Jackson's guitarist on his legendary "Victory Tour" in the Eighties! Not to mention work with Mick Fleetwood, Gap Band, Spencer Davis and many more or his session work or sharing the stage with the likes of Albert and Freddie King in earlier stages of his career. His gig was absolutely a scorcher, no wonder people in the know dubbed him as "King of Rocking Blues guitar!" His standard set included numerous classics between Albert King and Jimi Hendrix, plus his own material which is on the same level as other people's material he did. Spirits of Albert and Jimi were haunting the stage and blues fans were mesmerized! Gregg Wright fired from all arms and easily confirmed his high ranking within the blues and rock community. A gig to remember!           Author: Vasja IvanovskiSkopje,    ” - Vasja Ivanovski
