 I only caught the first set, Feb. 14. I was pleasantly  surprised to see frontman Peter Cormier brought along his multi-talented back up singers to fill out the band’s sound and to allow Cormier to play a little more keyboards.

 One of the backup singers, Sydney Zadravec also played lead guitar for a few songs, while another backup singer, Meaghan Thompson added saxophone. Deicha Carter  added background vocals and sang lead on a couple of songs.

 Peter and the Wolves played a lot of energetic piano and guitar driven, ’50s style vintage rock and roll including obscure Buddy holly songs, several new songs from their next CD. Some highlights were Boogie Down baby, ” “ My Eyes Track Faster Than my Feet,” and an older song “Wolfman.”

 Cormier switched to guitar midway through  “St. James Infirmary.”

 And, when he found it was going out of tune, left the stage to fetch another guitar while his band vamped on a cool cover of Peggy Lee’s “Fever.”

 They also played a few blues, rock and roll and jazz classics including “Traveling Light.” Their version of blues/ jazz standard St. James Infirmary featured a hot saxophone solo. “Switching In the Kitchen,” was also a highlight.

 As expected, they had a dance floor full of people showing off their best two stepping  and ’50s dance moves.
