Peter and the Wolves get people moving at the Slice

After a Calgary run, a Peter and the Wolves show was just what I needed.


 As expected the Slice was packed for Peter and the Wolves’ March 24 show.

 Frontman Peter Cormier was playing guitar as I arrived with Meg Thomson adding extra rhythm guitar and a new bassist on the upright bass.

 The dance floor was full of people showing off their favourite ’50s dance moves.


 Meg Thomson sang lead on a couple of songs including a cool version of classic country hit “ Thanks A Lot,” giving Cormier a bit of a vocal break and switched to saxophone as Cormier took a seat behind the piano to tap into the spirit of Jerry Lee Lewis.


 They were playing a lot more country than usual, but  the show ended up being a nice slice of the 1950s including classic country, lots of rock and roll and ’50s pop music plus Peter and The Wolves ’50s style originals.


They ended their second set with one of my favourite Peter and the Wolves originals “ Wolfman Rock.”


 Peter and the Wolves have a busy week in Lethbridge. They were at the German Canadian Club for the Geomatic Attic, March 30 and will be playing a special Red Tie Gala at the Coast Hotel on Saturday, April 1 for the United Way. Tickets for the show incuding dinner and the presentation of awards for individuals and community organizations are $150.
