About Kat Wright
Kat Wright, whose voice is both sultry and dynamic, delicate yet powerful; gritty but highly emotive and nuanced, has been described as "a young Bonnie Raitt meets Amy Winehouse". Add to that voice enough stage presence to tame lions, and the combination of feline femininity proves immediately enchanting. There's soul flowing in and out of her rock 'n' roll with a serpentine seduction. Some of soul music's sweet, grand dames belt, shout, seethe, and succumb, while Wright sings gently like a heartache's apology. It's funky in spots and beautiful all over. And it hurts a little … like it should.
About Jake Kulak
Jake Kulak picked up a guitar at age 11 and instinctively knew what to do with it. Within a couple of months he was playing at open jams in the CT blues and jazz scene. At age 13 he made the first of many trips to Memphis where he played in clubs on Beale Street as part of the International Blue Challenge Youth Showcase, and to Clarksdale, MS where he attended the Pinetop Perkins Masterclass in Guitar, learning from living blues legends like Bob Margolin. He was also recognized with a merit scholarship by the Honeyboy Edwards Fund for the Blues at the National Blues Museum. Several years later Jake was playing 60+ professional gigs a year, all while still attending High School. Locally he has studied with CT guitar legend Frank Varela and Jake is currently attending the Berklee College of Music in Boston where he has studied with Thaddeus Hogarth. He can play solo acoustic, solo electric or rock out with his full band.
