Hackettstown, N.J. – Former Sheryl Crow guitarist Todd Wolfe and the Todd Wolfe Band are headlining a WNTI Benefit Concert 8 p.m. on Saturday, October 26, 2013, at the Historic Blairstown Theatre located at 30 Main Street in Blairstown.  Opening the show is New Jersey’s own The Spuds.

Wolfe and his band mates, Roger Voss on drums and Justine Gardner on bass, have been touring nonstop in 2013, starting with an Atlantic Coast tour of four weeks, into a seven- week, 43-show European tour, followed by another seven-week tour through the Midwest, Canada and West Coast.  They are stopping in Blairstown for the WNTI event before returning to the road for one last five-week tour through Heartland America that takes them north of the border into Alberta and then back home for 2013!

“Todd Wolfe is one of the best guitarists I have ever played with,” says Sheryl Crow.
Members of thhe Todd Wolfe Band recall the days when “men were men and amps were amp,” real tubes crackling with a “bluesdelic” sound reminiscent of the best rock and roll bands of the ‘60s and ‘70s.  This band jams and rocks, but its music is deeply soaked in blues.

“A deep bluesy soul with a tinge of Southern rock and psychedelic vibe…Wolfe’s bandmates are incredibly skilled musicians, each adding a unique element to the band’s overall sound,” claims Blues Rock Review.

Based out of Flemington, N.J., The Spuds are best known for their sterling wit and the perpetual embarrassment of their wives.  Formed in 1976 and continuing to this day, the basic band philosophy has always been, “whoever shows up to play is in the band.”  The Spuds combine their Punk/Folk roots into what they like to think of as “Polk Music.”  Whether performing as a duo, or at full orchestral strength, they strive to fulfill their favorite post concert review. 

Tickets cost $20 and can be purchased by calling (908) 979-4335, ext. 1 or online at wnti.org.
