I just want to say that I owe a lot of Thankx and Gratitude to to Jimmy .. he revived my ambition in playing back in 2011 , after another unsuccessful stint in local band (s) .. I was looking for a gig , about to put the Bass for awhile when he contacted me .. he belived in me sight n sound unseen , And after a short stint it started to roll and roll fast .., and it turned into something magicial as you can tell by the photos .. .. A truly gifted musician , more so a friend. The project is on hiatus right now , and hopefully soon I will be holding the low end down once again for Jimmy .. You Rock , Brother ~ WolF ~*+*
. . It really goes without sayin' that in my short time back playin' bass, I have met alot of great people that I consider my friends, and really have received some good advice and encouragement about music mostly, but also on some other topics as well, serious and not so serious . . Also spending time gettin' back out after a few rough years, this has all been very Theraputic . . .
~*~ GOING AFTER THE DREAM ~*~ It has been awhile since I have posted a true update .. .. Alot has been happenin' since my last gig in July of 2012 , and am getting excited about the road that is opening up .. ..
I watched my son go off to a school , far away to take on a new challenge and to follow his dreams for his future , as hard as it is with him being 1,000 miles away , I am so proud that he wants to do this. And lesson learned from my son .. go after what you want and be your own person .. .. Love You , Ryan , and you opened my eyes .. ..
With that , I am taking my own direction with my music and playing .. .. I am currently involved in a couple of projects , that I am fully excited about , and has and will take my music into a strong direction .. ..
1) In July of 2012 , I was asked to audition for Al Smyth , in The Free Beer n Chicken Coalition .. .. never considered myself an outright blues player , but I must admit the music Al creates is infectious , and fun to play. It has brought a revived interest in my music via new challenges , and there is a good chemistry between Al , Joe ( drums) and myself that the project works .. .. Our first gig is Fri. , Sept 28th over at Bethel Road Pub ! .. .. hope to see ya' there ! 2) .. .. Aug. of 2012, I was contacted by another local guitarist , Jimmy Droz , who was working on a plan with his Jimmy Droz Project. A great guitarist that has been in the C-Bus scene for many years , great original Rock / Blues with infectious lyrics from the soul. With Lyric and Music collaborations from Julie Justus , the music he creates is something I can play from the heart and relate to. , giving my new Blues route a try and still Rockin' my Arse off .. The new project has changed names ... be on the Lookout for MEDICINE BAG .. ! I offically play my first gig with Jimmy , and Jeff Evans (Drums) on Oct. 5th , @ The Rack Tavern ! Can I get an "Oh Yeah ??!!?? and after a short Hiatus the Return of The Jimmy Droz Project in May 2013 !! Give me another Hell Yeah ! ., with JC Coleman on the drums .. .. .. and to top it off , in Nov of 2012 , I was asked to become the fifth member of Classic ReWind ! Rock Cover Band ..Talk about Fun times !!!

4) I would like to extend a great thanks to all that have supported me , and to my new musician friends that believe in the Wolf .. .. Al Smyth , Jimmy Droz , Joe Miller , JC Coleman , Jeff Evans , Fred Gablick , Julie Justus, Linda and Cary Dachtyl , So , since July of 2012 , I have been , and still , crammin' 80+ new tunes , all original and styles , into my head to work with these folk and bands. I feel it is going to pay out . . . I have always said that , I am sure I am not the best that is out there , but my work ethic and love of music will get me there .. .. and I am gettin' there
.. ... .. And Ryan , Thanks for giving your Ol' Man a lesson ... Love You very much !
Peace , my friends , and would love to see all of ya at a show soon !
