Peter and the Wolves bring back old style rock and roll to the Casino


Calgary rockabilly trio Peter and the Wolves always play a great show as they did Friday, Sept. 14 at Casino Lethbridge — the first of a two night party at the Casino.

 I was pleasantly surprised. As I arrived, sweaty frontman Peter Cormier was busy brushing his pompadour out of his eyes, occasionally whipping out his comb to brush his hair back while tearing it up on the keyboards.

He played a few rock and roll classics as dancer whirled in front of the stage, but most of their set focused on music from their latest CD “Howlin’ and Prowlin’.

Some of the new highlights were “Hot Foot Woman,” “Beatrice”and Sundae Monday Blues.”

They played pure, old school rock and roll though  “Lonely Man” had a Stray Cats feel.

He switched to electric guitar mid-way though the set.

They played a few older songs including “Rock it Back in Time” from their first album which ended the set.
