Bluesy Rock n Roller Peter Wolf is best known for his stretch as the front man with long-time band the J. Geils Blues Band, where he was known for his stage antics and quick wit. After seeing the J. Geils Band in concert for the first time Wolf immediately joined the band and became not only the leader of the group but also handled much of the group’s business affairs. The band soon became well known for their vivacious and exciting live performances.
After gaining recognition in New England, they caught the attention of Bill Graham, a well-known promoter who continued to book them, helping them gain fans in every city they visited. After the band parted ways in 1983 due to creative differences, Wolf took on a solo career releasing seven solo albums and collaborating with countless musicians such as Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.
His sixth solo album “Sleepless” was listed as one of the 500 “greatest Albums of All Time” by Rolling Stone Magazine in 2002.
Some of his best hits include “Come as You Are”, “Lights Out” and “99 Worlds”.
Peter’s band the "Midnight Travelers," consists of a unique assortment of the finest blues and rock musicians working today. An evening with Wolf takes you on an eclectic musical journey interwoven with his spellbinding stories- new music, old favorites, and hopefully that charismatic stage presence he is so well known for.WATCH VIDEO: "Musta Got Lost" LIVEWATCH VIDEO: "I Don't Wanna Know" LIVEROY SLUDGE
Roy Sludge plays classic country and rockabilly music with a heaping helping of humor thrown in. With a deep, rumbling voice reminiscent of Jr. Brown or Ernest Tubb and his biting sense of humor, Roy’s been entertaining roots music fans for over 3 decades and he's not stopping anytime soon. His live shows have been described as “lightening in a bottle." He was a sideman with the original Barrence Whitfield & The Savages, Tarbox Ramblers and fronted the roots “supergroup” The Spurs. Boston's NPR station, WBUR-AM wrote: "Roy Sludge and his band sound like they just flew in from Memphis, but this rockabilly band is home-grown and Boston-based."WATCH VIDEO: 'Beer Bottle Mama'
