BY GEORGE J. DACRE

The Todd Wolfe Band will be making their way to Piermont’s Turning Point this weekend.

Screen Shot 2014-09-26 at 2.45.52 PMWolfe, who has written songs and toured the world with Sheryl Crow, will be featuring his own band’s music “out of the 60s” at the Turning Point Cafe this Saturday, September 28 at 9 pm. Wolfe told the Rockland County Times the Turning Point is a favorite venue for him and he is looking forward to this engagement with opener Ginty, a premier acoustic organist.

“We play rock and blues and music of the late sixties,” says Wolfe, who is featured on instrumentals and vocals. The Todd Wolfe Band is made up of bass and drums and two guitars.

The band first played Piermont in 1999 and comes back once or twice a year. Starting out playing in garage basements, the Wolfe band has always been that, a band, says Wolfe. Their first club date was in the Chelsea in New York, where they also played at the Lone Star. Among their highlight opening gigs was an opener for the late Johnny Winters. Touring-mates Ginty once opened for country superstars The Dixie Chicks.

Wolfe, a native of Forest Hill, Queens, has lived and worked in Los Angeles, New Jersey and the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania. His band has toured the lower 48, Canada and Europe and now has plans for a Japanese tour.
