A Soulful New Year's Eve with Wesley Bright and the Hi-Lites with DJs Alright and Party Sweat

When: Wed., Dec. 31, 9 p.m. 2014

The Northern soul-inspired indie outfit Wesley Bright & the Hi-lites has had a great year. “It’s been a lot of building,” says drummer Nick Fritsch. “We had a busy period from April through September when we were gigging more often than not and gigging out of town. We had a couple of amazing shows. We did the Nelsonville Music Festival and that gave us a ton of exposure. The summer was a lot of festivals, which is great. We got to meet a lot of people in terms of new fans. That was really cool.” The last 45 has gotten big in the UK where DJs have been pre-selling the thing. “A Northern soul movie came out there and it’s not a documentary but based on that time period,” Fritsch says. “It’s been great for us. All the kids are getting back into the Northern soul scene. We can’t keep up with it. We sold out of last 45. It’s getting over there and DJs are emailing us left and right. I even got a letter from a DJ in Australia who spun our record.” Expect to hear some new tracks at tonight's NYE blowout, an event that looks like it's becoming an annual tradition. (Niesel)
