The Alrights offer a diverse range of music from pop, rock, and punk that's smooth, raw, and soulful. The Duluth-based trio features Toby Churchill, whose lyrics are no less diverse. He is also lead vocalist, guitarist and pianist; Danny Cosgrove plays a mean bass and sings a sweet harmony creating a larger sound; and drummer Chad Chavo Amborn knows when to hold back, but has the chops to bring down the house. In 2005, they signed a record deal with NYC City Canyons Records and toured nationally.
