Peter Wolf Embarks On A Solo Tour of the West Coast
(Peter Wolf Facebook Page) Peter Wolf, one of rock music’s legendary showmen, has announced a long-awaited solo tour, in support of his critically acclaimed release, Midnight Souvenirs.
Midnight Souvenirs features duets with country legend and national treasure Merle Haggard, the soulfully transcending and dynamic Grammy award winner Shelby Lynne and the haunting and majestic voice of Neko Case. Wolf’s album integrates and embraces rock, R & B, blues, folk and country in a way that has distinguished his storied career. Measurable are his decades as the leader and frenzied focal figure of the J. Geils Band, with whom he showcased his talents on such hits as “Centerfold,” “Freeze Frame,” “Love Stinks” and “Musta Got Lost.”
Wolf’s musical roots precede rock and roll, and are personally entwined with friendships and performers such as the late Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Aretha Franklin and Van Morrison. His talents have continued into the music of tomorrow with tours and on-stage antics with The Rolling Stones, U2, Kid Rock, , and Bruce Springsteen.
An interview on NPR’s Fresh Air, a blistering performance on Late Show With David Letterman and a show-stopping duet with Shelby Lynne on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon gave audiences a taste of what to expect when Wolf is live with a microphone.
Peter’s band will include Duke Levine (guitar), Kevin Barry (guitar), Marty Ballou (bass), Marty Richards (drums), and Jonathan Carroll (keyboards).
