Music on the Porch: Peter Lamb and the Wolves
Our fall concert series featured Triangle favorites Peter Lamb and the Wolves. An old-school jazz band with a contemporary twist, this group of talented musicians insists on having fun while they play. “If you watch videos of old big bands, people danced,” says Lamb. “It wasn’t just about the musicians–it was about the scene. I think that’s taught more in North Carolina than it is in New York.”
Lamb leads the group on tenor saxophone, aided by Paul Rogers on trumpet, Stephen Coffman on drums, and two musicians doing double duty — troubadour Mark Wells on vocals and piano, and Peter Kimosh handling upright bass as well as bass saxophone. The band holds forth at Raleigh’s hip Humble Pie on first and third Wednesdays. Take a listen to their performance of “I Put a Spell on You” from their September 20, 2018 performance at Music on the Porch.
