Friday, November 13th – TITLE TOWN Soul & Funk Party is pleased to announce the return of its “DANCE & SHOW” series featuring THE RETURN of Akron Ohio’s eight-piece, high-energy soul revivalists – WESLEY BRIGHT & THE HI-LITES!

The band will perform two sets with TITLE TOWN DJ’s spinning soul and funk 45s throughout the evening – a truly a wild, one-of-a-kind show and dance party not to be missed!


“From the crisp, dapper suits to the skilled orchestration, the ensemble has proven they’re studied performers through and through. But still, they leave no doubt that soul music is about the heart and that it stirs feet as much as it stirs emotions, which is how they’ve wowed so many crowds. They light fires under people. It might even be unsafe—certainly unwise—to sit through a Wesley Bright and the Hi-Lites performance, as the audience rises to dance, sparked out of their seats by a hot, sonic roar and the kind of showmanship you might have feared had been lost if you weren’t witnessing it firsthand.” – Brittany Nader, The Devil Strip

“The first thing you notice about a Wesley Bright & the Hi-Lites show is the dancing. This crowd is moving. They’re doing the watusi, the mashed potato, the twist and then some. Young, old, white, black, dressed in jeans and dressed in suits, pumps and pearls, they’re moving, “ writes Laura DeMarco of Cleveland’s The Plain Dealer.

Then your eyes are drawn to the man on stage, Wesley Bright himself, a honey-voiced frontman who’s got the pipes and the moves to keep the crowd going all night.

Then, of course, the band: a seven-piece Northern Soul group with a horn section straight out of the ’60s. Like Bright, they’re clad in sharp suits and have been regulary selling out venues in Northeast Ohio and beyond.

Wesley Bright & the Hi-Lites are no typical Northeast Ohio band circa 2014. And a Wesley Bright and the Hi-Lites show is no ordinary gig.

Since the band was formed in Akron in spring 2011 by bassist Bob Basone, drummer Nick Fritsch and singer Bright, the enthralling group has become one of the biggest draws in town.

With sold out shows at Cleveland’s Beachland Ballroom, two singles on Hi-D-Ho Records, the band is currently at work on a full-length release, while expanding its touring base across the U.S and fielding offers to tour the U.K., where their singles have been getting rave press and regular spins.

Don’t miss THE RETURN of Wesley Bright & The Hi-Lites in Pittsburgh!

TITLE TOWN ‘Dance & Show’ featuring Pittsburgh’s own SPANKY WILSON & The All-Stars performing LIVE!


TITLE TOWN Soul & Funk Dance Party presents:

TITLE TOWN ‘Dance & Show’ featuring Pittsburgh’s own
SPANKY WILSON & The All-Stars performing LIVE!

Friday, September 18th at Thunderbird cafe
4023 Butler St. (Lawrenceville)
Doors open 9 pm, 21+, $10 at door


For those of you who have been following TITLE TOWN since day one, you surely remember the event we did with the one & only Renaldo Domino (Twinight Records) backed by JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound. This was back in November 2009, in the Shadow Lounge days. After relocating TITLE TOWN to Brillobox (2013), we did another live event with Wesley Bright & The Hi-Lites at Thunderbird Cafe. We called it TITLE TOWN ‘Dance & Show’ and it drew the better part of three hundred people!

On Friday, September 18th we are doing another TITLE TOWN Dance & Show, once again at the Thunderbird, and this one will include a live performance by Pittsburgh’s own, world-renowned songstress, Spanky Wilson & The All-Stars!

Spanky Wilson should need no introduction. Her first three albums (1968-1970) were produced by Aretha Franklin’s musical conductor H.B. Barnum. She subsequently recorded for Westbound Records (1975), where she was label mates with the likes of Funkadelic, The Ohio Players, The Detroit Emeralds, Denise LaSalle and many others. After spending many years in France, her career was rejuvenated a decade ago by a UK-based DJ, Will Holland aka Quantic of the Quantic Soul Orchestra, who released her 2006 full-length album I’m Thankful. The All-Stars are comprised of A-list Pittsburgh-based musicians: Max Leake (keys), Paul Thompson (bass), Thomas Wendt (drums) and Lou Stellute (sax).

This will be a TITLE TOWN event for the record books. Doors open early at 9:00 pm. TITLE TOWN resident DJ’s J. Malls & Gordy G. will be spinning Soul & Funk 45′s through out the night. You are all encouraged to stay late and close the night out TITLE TOWN Soul & Funk Dance Party-style after the live performance!

Mark your calendars and stay tuned for more information on pre-sale tickets.

TITLE TOWN returns to Brillobox the second Saturday of each month and this time we are joined by DJ SMI. The former Shadow Lounge owner (where TITLE TOWN first began) is a musician and disc jockey, an all around creative guy and way back in the day he paid his crate digging dues while acquiring a massive amount of 45′s, which he will share with us on Saturday, September 12th. This is a rare opportunity to catch an all-45 set from the ubiquitous Pittsburgh DJ and co-founder of popular local events including Afro Heat and Classic Material.

Early arrival is always recommended, especially since the college students will be back in town this month. As an extra incentive we offer half-priced admission before 10 pm.

Bring your open minds and ears and be prepared to dance to FIVE HOURS of vintage Soul, Funk, R&B, Boogaloo, Disco, Boogie and MORE!!
