Peter and the Wolves rock an extended Windy City Opry

E-mail Print PDF

I couldn’t make it to Coaldale for Calgary rockabilly trio Peter and the Wolves on the weekend, but thankfully they returned to the Slice for a late announced Windy City Opry show at the Slice, Wednesday, March 14.Peter Cormier from Peter and the Wolves does his best Jerry Lee Lewis impression on piano at the Windy City Opry, March 14 at the Slice. photo by Richard Amery

I usually miss most of it due to being on the air, but this time they played an entire second set and outlasted promoter Shaela Miller, whose band opened the show and who had to leave to take care of her kids and even me.
 They always put on a great show for people who like rockabilly and ’50s rock and roll.

 Frontman Peter Cormier ended the first set by playing guitar behind his head and duckwalking across the stage for an audience full of swing dancers and people raucously applauding, before  ending the set with blues chestnut “St. James Infirmary.”Shalea Miller joins Peter and the Wolves, March 14.

 After a break, many of the audience had trickled away however Cormier began the second set by channelling Jerry Lee Lewis on piano.

 He played a variety of new music including “Sundae Monday blues”  from a new CD  due out  April 21 as well as rock and roll classics from the likes of Ray Charles and , of course, Jerry Lee Lewis.

“Girl Can’t Help it”  and “Jailbird Josephine” were highlights as was “Veronica.”
Shaela Miller joined them on stage for “Jackson” and another song.
