Wesley Bright & The Honeytones are a soul band from the funky rust belt town of Akron, OH. Although he’s only been on the scene for several years, Wesley has grown to be a regional favorite amongst true soul-lovers and vinyl collectors. As a vocalist, he is quoted to be a honey-voiced frontman who’s got the pipes and the moves to keep the crowd going all night! Backed by the Honeytones, Wesley is stepping out on his own to create a new soul sound that bridges the gap between classic soul and the modern sound. Being compared to greats like Al Green and Otis Redding, there is something really show stopping about him. His way of getting the whole crowd to sing and dance together has earned him the reputation of a true dynamo on stage!
Singer Brent “Wesley Bright” Wesley and a different backing band played their first gig a few years ago and quickly became one of Cleveland’s favorite live acts, and he’s been going strong ever since. Because of its terrific live show — sharp-dressed Wesley is a real dynamo on stage — the soul/old-school R&B band is constantly in high demand. Songs such as “You Don’t Care About Me” feature a steady bass beat and soulful, Otis Redding-like vocals, and embody the band’s soulful catalog. Last year, Bright reemerged with a new backing outfit, the Honeytones. The band plans to release a series of 45s throughout the year, the first being “You Don’t Want Me/Work it Out: Part 2,” a cheeky soul pop tune. Don’t miss it.
