To those of us who followed the rock scene in Boston in the 1980’s, the name Peter Wolf has an almost familial ring to it. He’s most well-known as the front man of the J. Geils Band, but he joins us now in-studio with a new band comprised of some of the best jazz, bluegrass and R&B musicians in the region.

Peter Wolf will be performing at the Stone Mountain Arts Center in Brownfield, Maine, on New Year’s Eve.
