 There’s something about rockabilly  music that just makes you want to move.  So Calgary’s Peter & the Wolves were just the ticket at the Owl Acoustic Lounge, April 24. Peter & the Wolves  wind up their show with a balancing act. Photo by Richard Amery

I only caught the second set of uptempo, really authentic sounding ’50s style rockabilly.

They began second set as a trio,with drummer Miss Cherry Kisses bringing her snare drum centre stage to sing. Together Miss Cherry Kisses, frontman Peter Cormier, dressed as a  ’50s style greaser with a slicked back pompadour and upright bassist Theo Waite took the crowd on a time 

travel trip back to the ’50s. they played a Twangy version of Nancy Sinatra’s “ Boom Boom” and an Elvis Presley sounding “Bee Bop a Lula,” Ms Cherry Kisses traded trades vocals with Cormier on“ Touch Me, ” then went back behind her drum kit as as keyboardist Paul Rodermond joined them on stage for the rest of the set.

He played upbeat boogie woogie rock and roll music on keyboards with great vintage organ sounds.

The tight band tackled the Stray Cats “Rock this Town, ” and Johnny Cash’s “I’ve Been Everywhere.”
 They ended their set on a jam as Peter Cormier climbed on top of  Waite’s bass and jumped off.
