We humbly present the Sound Situations season one opener.
Combine some of the brightest and most talented jazz musicians in the triangle, give them striking personality and a passion for enjoying the hell out of music and you've got Peter Lamb and the Wolves. Lamb is joined by"Baddass belter and keyboardist" Mark Wells, stand-up bass and bass saxophone player George Knott, Al Strong on trumpet and The Beast drummer Steven Koffman. The group's sound is a kaleidescope of rich musical backgrounds, strong cultural influence and each member's personal relationship with his musical abilities. We'll hear the group talk about what keeps them going, how they feel about their music and what being a musician means to them. We'll show you 14 minutes of why they're our favorite and since they're local to Raleigh, you'll have ample opportunities to hear them yourself.
I Was Totally Destroying It is a five-piece powerpop band from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, featuring current and former members of Saddle Creek band Sorry About Dresden.
