The southern California rockers, officially joined together to form Joyous Wolf in 2014 but have known each other since the 6th grade and it comes across on stage. Morphing together musical influences ranging from straight forward in your face heavy metal to blues Joyous Wolf pours out energy from the word go and never lets up.
Casually, vocalist Nick Reese, guitarist Blake Allard, bassist Greg Braccio and drummer Robert Sodaro take their place on stage, greeted by a great ovation. In an instant, the lights come up and Joyous Wolf catapults into “Undesired,” “Place in Time,” and “Had Enough” and the night is off to a great start.
Joyous Wolf has a new album set to release on April 19th called Place in Time, The next song is from the album “Feel The Low” is for anyone who “has a friend who is feeling something – Get it out – Don’t keep it inside”.
