Peter Lamb and the Wolves at Carrboro Arts Center

Peter Lamb and the Wolves will play a concert at the Carrboro Arts Center this Sunday, October 2, 2011. I will be joining the Wolves onstage for a few songs and so will Lucian Cobb, the Atomic Rhythm All-Stars‘ trombone player extraordinaire.

From the Arts Center website:

“The dance floor will be open for Peter Lamb and The Wolves’ Arts Center debut! Named best Jazz group in the Triangle, this young quintet lives up to their fairy-tale namesakes. The Wolves peddle languid sophistication that is always a little bit dangerous–their repertoire reaches back to New Orleans’ earliest syncopaters but also forward to hipster bards like Bob Dylan and Tom Waits. http://www.peterlambandthewolves.com. Recommended for fans of: James Hunter, Sam Cooke.”

Single Admission: $11
Members Single Admission: $9
Day-of-show non-members: $13

Atomic Rhythm All-Stars Named Finalist for Independent Weekly’s Best of the Triangle 2011

Due to a typo naming the band “Atomic Heaters,” recognition was delayed, but we’re excited to announce that they discovered the mistake and the Atomic Rhythm All-Stars was a finalist for the Best Jazz Group in the Triangle in the Independent Weekly’s Best of the Triangle 2011! The title of Best Jazz Group went to Atomic’s saxophone player’s band, Peter Lamb and the Wolves, so there are winners all around! Thanks to everyone who voted in the reader’s choice poll for both of these groups without being prompted or choosing from a list!
