The Todd Wolfe Band Set To Unleash Live CD & DVD From American Home Entertainment On January 11, 2011 November 12, 2010Posted by David W. King in Uncategorized.
NEW YORK, NY – American Home Entertainment announces a January 11, 2011 release date for The Todd Wolfe Band Live on CD and DVD. The new project was recorded live under a full moon one night this summer at McCoole’s Arts Place in Quakertown, Pennsylvania, in front a wildly appreciative audience and showcases The Todd Wolfe Band in all its blues-rockin’ glory, wailing on 10 tracks of original songs that have become fan favorites over the course of six previous albums.
Guitarist/singer Todd Wolfe’s music is deeply rooted in the blues origins of artists such as B.B., Freddy and Albert King, Otis Rush, Hubert Sumlin and Buddy Guy, but amped up to 10 with an energy level that recalls guitar superstars like Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Winter, Leslie West, Peter Green and Jeff Beck. In addition to his incendiary guitar work, the new CD/DVD also shines a spotlight on Wolfe’s extraordinary songwriting, which while true to its influences, carves its own path as original and powerful. With Roger Voss on drums and Suavek Zaniesienko on bass, The Todd Wolfe Band has developed as a major road band, with constant touring in the past two years both in the U.S. and overseas.
Todd Wolfe was born and raised in Forest Hills, New York, and got his first guitar at age 13. Through a succession of early bands and now with his own group, he’s become a guitarist of immense power and passion, capable of captivating audiences with his intense, yet melodic, playing. During his formative years, he opened shows for such artists as Gregg Allman, Dickey Betts, Albert Collins, Johnny Winter, Robin Trower and The Neville Brothers.
In the ‘80s, he also met and played with both Carla Olson of the Textones and Sheryl Crow, who when she needed a band to tour after the success of her debut multi-platinum-selling album Tuesday Night Music Club, asked Todd to be her lead guitarist. Over the course of the next five years, Todd played with Sheryl Crow in her band, touring world-wide on concert stages with such legends as Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, The Eagles Robert Plant/Jimmy Page and Elton John.
Now, with his own band and releasing his seventh album, Todd Wolfe is front and center, and the critics have been paying attention. Blues Revue said of The Todd Wolfe Band, “Their sound recalls bands like Gov’t Mule and Cream.” And Hittin’ the Note magazine described the band thusly: “Imagine some power trio mixed into a Texas blues foundation and overlaid with trippy psychedelia – that’s the essence of Wolfe’s music.”
With the release of The Todd Wolfe Band Live on CD and DVD, fans everywhere can hear and see what everyone’s been talking about – the pure, unadulterated power of a band in its prime.
