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!
WESLEY BRIGHT & the HI-LITES
“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.
