Bryan Chrisman lit up the drums with ease and style. His crisp, tight drumming probably deserves a solo here and there. But then again, the Wright Brothers Band offers such great variety and never seem to fixate on only one performer.
John McDowell on bass, Tom Wright on Guitar, and Tim Wright on guitar (for the moment.)
John McDowell sang lead on many songs and always provided an excellent drive-line on bass.
Frank Bradford displayed the characteristic versatility of Wright Brothers performers, kicking off the night with lead guitar and keyboards on "Sweet Home Alabama."
Tom Wright introduced a series of musical selections ranging from Mr. Sandman and I.ll Be Seeing You from the 1940s, Jail House Rock from the 50s, through to hits of the 90s.
Lauren Wright joined the boys and riveted the crowd with "Feel Like a Woman."
Emily Wright Gosser soared with "Landslide," "Somewhere over the Rainbow," and "A Change Will Do You Good."
Tom Wright got the audience laughing between songs with commentaries on central Indiana life.
Geepers, John! I nearly dropped the camera when I saw that look :-).
"Somewhere Over the Rainbow."
"Love Will Keep Us Alive"
When the party songs started, the crowd had to get up and dance. They were "Takin' Care of Business" on stage while folks danced on the sidewalk. I hated to use the flash, but it was the only way to get the picture.
Did they really get folks to sing along to the theme from The Beverly Hillbillies? You betcha!
Tim Wright displayed his string skills on guitar, banjo, steel guitar, and acoustic. And harmonica, 'ceptn that ain't a string instrument, so I needed a new sentence.
"Life in the Fast Lane" got everybody rocking again.
There could be no better way to end than with "America the Beautiful."
