ABOUT

I am a Retired Building Contractor and Guitar Player from Plymouth, MA. For 25 + years I played the Guitar as a member of "The Bud Wrightington Trio" trio for different functions ...dances...weddings...dinner cruises ...lounges ...clubs ...etc. In 1995 my wife & I relocated to Ocala, FL to get away from the COLD northeast. In 1995 I joined the "Ocala Jazz Society" ...now known as the "Ocala Jazz Club"...I am still the Guitar Player with the "Ocala Jazz Club" today....Also a Part-Time Guitar Instructor. Interested in playing music from the 40's, 50's, 60's.with 3 - 5 pieces.....Not interested in playing with backing tracks.
Music that I play is mostly from the 40' 50's & 60's (Old Standards) & Old Country music. I am available for Solo performances or as a fill-in. I don't use backing tracks or sing. My style of Solo Guitar playing would be best suited for easy listening in a Lounge or Small Venue such as Nursing Home Entertainment or Parties. I am also available to play with a Band or Group looking for a Guitar Player to play Old Standards & or Popular Music from the 40's, 50's & 60's. If I had to label my style it would be more of a Jazz Style mixed with a little bit of Old Country & Old Rock & Roll. I am flexible to some degree.
