Live on Excursions: Chris Wright
Local guitarist Chris Wright (of C.Wright’s Parlour Tricks) stops by Excursions to share his energetic, and standout, brand of instrumental rock.
Like the others members in his band, Wright is an incredibly talented and practiced musician, having played guitar for over 20 years in the Dayton area. Wright’s goal with this group is to create a fiery instrumental sound that draws from great artists like ZZ Top, Van Halen, and Jeff Beck. With a sound that jumps from jazz, to blues/rock, and even a little country, Wright and his band create a dense and complex instrumental sound that is truly unique.
Wright visits Excursions on WYSO to have a lively discussion with Niki Dakota about the challenges of heading an instrumental band, the complicated and difficult arrangements Wright creates for the group, and why Parlour is spelled with a “u”. “Pesky Phil and Nosy Parker” by C. Wright’s Parlour Tricks follows the interview in this installment of Excursions.
