Blues Wolf

“Blues Wolf” is a fixture on the Rhode Island blues scene. Mr. Wolf and four of his friends play as “Wolf & the Jam Daddies” at a number of revolving venues, but particularly at Boundary Brewhouse in Pawtucket, where they’ve hosted a Sunday evening blues jam for ten years.

Moonie and I had a great time checking out Wolf & the Jam Daddies (Moonie particularly liked polishing off my “Jesse James,” a burger with smoked bacon and cheddar, and trying to take little sips of beer when no one was looking). No one said you had to eat healthy to enjoy Blues Wolf, especially as he kicked off the evening singing about the chocolate-covered cookie blues.

The best part was when Wolf played a fantastic tribute to the late B.B. King titled “The King is Gone.” You can guess the inspiration, but with a slightly different arrangement. B.B. would have been proud.

Moonie really enjoyed meeting Wolf, who gave him a little Moonie family history. Moonie’s ancestors, Wolf told us, were called “wishnicks” before they were more recently called “troll dolls.”

Moonie has decided he’s good with being called Moonie, so I guess that’s settled.
