Jeff McCrae & The WolfPack
Jeff McCrae & The WolfPack was formed in May of 2012 as the result of Jeff's desire to put together a band whose members truly believed in the art of crafting great songs. Through a mutual friend, he caught the attention of Rip "The Wolf" Wagner ( Bass and Guitars), and they got together along with Jeff's lifelong friend and drummer Allen "The Allosaurus" Tavel at Jeff's place in the Rockaways. They worked up a funky version of Donovan's " Season of the Witch" that same night. They started rehearsing and the search began to find people of like minds to round out the band.
And then.....Superstorm Sandy hits the East Coast.
As Jeff and the people of Rockaway struggle to deal with the devastating aftermath of the storm, the band still manages to get together weekly at a studio in Brooklyn to audition new members. There they meet up with an old band mate of Jeff's from his Urban Outlaw days, Angelo Zervos ( Percussion and Vocals). They soon hook up with Richard Louis-Pierre (Keyboards, Bass) and Bill Gailyard ( Keyboards) and the line-up for Jeff McCrae & WolfPack is complete.
Drawing on their many influences and ability to play multiple instruments, the band is creating a wide variety of American Music that should resonate for years to come.
