The Paradise was Packed

Our BLUES BASH FOR DIABETES live at The Paradise Grill and bar in Tallahassee was an incredible evening. The crowd, employees and staff, and loyal fans turned out in flying colors, dancing, drinking, eating and enjoying a phenomenal, action packed show.

We played a great variety of blues and rock songs. Shaw's harp playing got everyone up and dancing. Yvette's vocals were incredible, Bert's guitar was downright dirty and bluesy sounding all night, Phil's bass was driving and in the groove as well as his rhythms, Neil's playing was sweet and "perty", and Sean's drumming was extraordinary, as always, featuring a couple of incredible drum solos.

Even though it was a rainy night to start off with, it came together as a great, memorable party. We are looking forward to returning to the PARADISE GRILL AND BAR as soon as possible to bring an even bigger crowd. So ask them to bring us back asap.

Keep tuned in with our up coming shows so you can enjoy some great music presented in the Wailin' Wolves own unique arrangements.
