The Will McBride Group

The Will McBride Group

Sunday, November 7 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm, Greenlight Stage

This band delivers energy and musicianship, with compelling original music and a great song selection from across the rock genres.

Openers for ZZ Top, Styx, Eddie Money, Leon Russell, The Temptations, Delbert McClinton, Aaron Neville, and more.  Imagine a funkier Steely Dan, a jazzier John Mayer, a more-vocal Santana, and an edgier Stevie Wonder...you get the picture. 

As the critics say, Will's “songwriting is extremely creative and clever” (Indie Music Digest), and music from the WMG “offers verve through juxtaposition-a real swagger” (Independent Weekly magazine), with an “impressive concoction of structure that felt natural but original” (DivideandConquerMusic.com).
