Our Story

The Wright Trio is a New Jersey based group putting their own spin on classic jazz standards, soul, R&B, and pop hits of today and yesterday. The sounds of guitar, upright bass, and the female voice create a luxurious and mellow musical backdrop for any affair. 

Singer Natasha Wright, who exhibited a vocal prowess at a very young age, has been performing as a professional vocalist for 14 years. She has performed with several of the top wedding bands on the East Coast including Mission Dance and The Fuzzpops. Additionally, in 2007 she was a contestant on the popular television program, "American Idol." 

Guitarist Sean Villere is one of the top call session guitarists in the tri-state area, recording and performing with countless different artists and bands for the last 20 years. His versatility in all genres of music has led to him working with members of Kool and the Gang, Billy Joel's saxophonist, Richie Cannata, and performing at New York's premier jazz club, the Blue Note. 

Bassist Mike Noordzy plays both upright and electric bass and holds a masters degree in Jazz Performance from the Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University, where he is currently employed as an adjunct professor. From 2007-2009 he toured the U.S., Canada, and Australia with '60's teen pop icon, Lesley Gore ("It's My Party," "You Don't Own Me," "Sunshine and Lollipops," etc.). Mike's masterful bass playing can be heard on dozens of recordings and most nights of the week in various clubs, restaurants, bars, and stages in New Jersey and New York City. 

The Wright Trio would love to play at your club, restaurant, lounge, private party, corporate event, or wedding. We specialize in weddings, working with couples who would prefer to have live music but are overwhelmed by the cost of a full size band. The Trio often performs during a wedding's cocktail hour, providing the couple with the affordable opportunity to hire a DJ for the reception whilst still honoring their love of live music. Beyond cocktail hours our services include music for a wedding ceremony and/or reception and we are able to expand the size of the group by adding more instruments (drums or horns, for example) to cater to our clients' musical preferences.
