Gregg Wright, began his professional career on the U.S. Southern circuit in the mid-1970's. He honed his craft with years of playing one-nighters across the Carolinas, Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Louisiana and Texas, often opening shows for the big national touring acts of the day. “I was privileged to work and learn around greatness!” says Gregg. “I opened several times for Albert King and Freddie King, and learned a great deal from watching them up close. Their words of encouragement really energized me. I owe them a huge debt of gratitude!"
An '80's move from Louisiana to Los Angeles saw Wright become a session man and "hired gun" touring guitarist. His reputation grew over the next decade doing albums and tours with Mick Fleetwood, Michael Jackson, the Gap Band, Berlin and Spencer Davis.
Wright's incredibly precise, high energy live performances have brought many a crowd to its feet and screaming for more. Total audience satisfaction is guaranteed with Gregg Wright . . . "King of the Rockin' Blues!"
