CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Louisiana Shows for October/November 2013


"KING OF THE ROCKIN' BLUES!"
October and November 2013 Louisiana Shows!
Greeting friends!
Been a while since I published one of these newsletters. Man, I am crazy focused on the new album. We have some great surprise musical guests on this one, along with my regular cast of characters. 

Having said that, it's nearing year's end and that means it's time to get out on some live dates and break some serious sweat. So it's back to Louisiana for a series of shows  starting at the end of this month.To be honest, it'll be good to take a break from recording and re-acquaint myself with a strange substance known as fresh air!

I look forward to seeing you there!

Gregg Wright Fret King Signature Guitar/HOB Show!


"KING OF THE ROCKIN' BLUES!"

FRET KING PRESENTS THE NEW CORONA
"GWR" GREGG WRIGHT SIGNATURE GUITAR
AT THE 2013 NAMM SHOW!
Trev_1_.jpgThe UK's Fret King Guitars http://www.fret-king.com/ will unveil its new Corona "GWR" Gregg Wright Signature guitar at the 2013 NAMM show in Anaheim, CA., the weekend of January 25-27. Legendary guitar luthier Trev Wilkinson designed the guitar according to Gregg's specs. "The "GWR" is based on my "Kamikaze" guitar I had made for the Jackson's Victory Tour back in the 80's, but with  huge innovative improvements  only Trev Wilkinson could come up with.  When it comes to innovative guitar design, Trev Wilkinson is about the most brilliant guy I've ever met! It is a thrill and an honor to work with him on this project. I cannot wait to start making some noise with what I'm sure will be a sonic weapon!" says Gregg. "Trev, Dennis Drumm and I have talked at length about the specs for this guitar.  The original "Kamikaze" hangs on the wall at the Hard Rock Cafe in Cozumel Mexico. I got my little little name plaque and piece of Rock & Roll immortality I suppose, but quite frankly, a bit of regret has always lurked in the back of my mind about letting that guitar go. It's bugged the Hell out of me for twenty years and in hindsight, a guitar is a much better musical tool than wall decoration!" I've visited Trev Wilkinson's shop in Southport near Liverpool and I assure you, the "GWR" will surpass anything I've played before!" The Fret King Corona GWR Gregg Wright Signature model will be commercially available at Fret King dealers worldwide. To find a dealer near you, check Fret King's website:  http://www.fret-king.com/

Gregg Wright Fret King Signature Guitar


"KING OF THE ROCKIN' BLUES!"


FRET KING TO UNVEIL GREGG WRIGHT SIGNATURE GUITAR AT 2013 NAMM SHOW!
Trev_1_.jpgThe UK's Fret King Guitars http://www.fret-king.com/ will unveil the new Gregg Wright Signature guitar at the 2013 NAMM show in Anaheim, CA., the weekend of January 25-27. Legendary guitar luthier Trev Wilkinson designed the guitar according to Gregg's specs. "When it comes to innovative guitar design, Trev Wilkinson is about the most brilliant guy I've ever met! It is a thrill and an honor to work with him on this project. I cannot wait to start making some noise with what I'm sure will be a sonic weapon!" says Gregg. "Trev, Dennis Drumm and I have talked at length about the specs for this guitar. I've been extremely unhappy and dissatisfied with the quality of the guitars the so-callled "big name" brands have been putting out over the last several years. There's been too much poor craftsmanship coupled with cheap materials. This is why guitar companies like Charvel took off big in the '80's and the big names damned near disappeared. The same thing appears to be happening all over again. History is repeating itself. Instrument and gear manufacturers in general don't seem to understand that splashy ads with pretty girls in bikinis do not sell instruments! Somebody playing the Hell out of one does! I've visited Trev Wilkinson's shop in Southport near Liverpool and I can personally attest to the superior sound,  feel and solid craftsmanship of his guitars. Trev's innovative ideas, attention to detail and the quality of materials he uses are sure to make Fret King the go to guitar making company for the forseeable future. Once a guitarist or bassist plays one, they won't want to go anywhere else!"  The Gregg Wright Signature model will be commercially available at Fret King dealers, worldwide.
