With a solid 5 piece band that reminded me of the instrumentation’s of the J. Geils Band: 2 guitars, bass, drums, keyboards, one of the guitarist was multi-instrumentalist that used a lap steel, les paul and acoustic guitars.
Peter Wolf and his west coast (?) hired guns were well rehearsed, ran through his new material from the “Midnight Souvenirs” release, although the audience was never pitched the usual stage banter of “this next on is on my new release” promotion. Wolf seemed to connect with the keyboard player who worked both the piano and B-3 organ with horn, while the singer would work the small stage and blow some harmonica and double maraca’s.
Well into his set the singer made the comment of how he was giving the band a fit, how they had requested the formation of a set list, and making the comment that although one was made, that they had not played any 2 songs in their list order. One of the highlights was the the beginning of the heavy beat of the old J. Geils song: “Looking for Love” the crowd of 40-60 somethings erupted with dancing in the wings!
