I'm a child of the 70's, but definitely remember more of the 80's J. Geils.

My jams growing up were "Love Stinks" or "Freeze Frame", that kind of thing. As I got older, I got more into the older stuff. I know for some people, it works the other way around.

Just the way he's always told stories onstage is enough to grip anyone's attention. As such, stories are part of the reason he's hitting the road for his "Waiting on the Moon" tour... A super limited run of 7 dates around New England, according to a recent press release.

When is this fantastic event?

This summer on July 5th and 6th at the Stone Mountain Arts Center, Wolf will be bringing his latest endeavor to the stage. He's about to release his memoir, and in line with that, he'll be performing all of his songs acoustic that night, as well as telling the stories behind songs. And probably just a bunch of crazy stories in general.
