Peter Wolf is 64 years old. But watching him perform live from a distance, you'd think he's closer to 24. Wednesday night, Peter Wolf and his band brought tons of energy and great music to Mr. Small's Theatre, playing music from his new album for well over an hour to a crowd of middle-aged fans.
Like a lot of older singers in the business, Wolf knew to back himself with an impressive band of experienced musicians, who he praised and shared the spotlight with, letting them take long solos and play some of their own music. Though Wolf dropped his New Orleans accent and persona once or twice between songs, he brought a lot of energy to the show and got the crowd cheering, moving and staying out past its bedtime.
