Why you should see this show…

Guitarist Wally Bryson was the engine that fueled Cleveland’s beloved and influential Raspberries, whose signature power pop is still worshiped in many circles. Say what you will about Eric Carmen’s songwriting, the band would have lacked crispness and sizzle without Bryson’s guitar tricks.
