Western Australian act WOLFPACK has performed under various aliases since the early 90’s.

From the raw sounds of Chicago juke joints to the swamp blues out of Baton Rouge, WOLFPACK cover classic songs by Muddy Waters, Slim Harpo, Jimmy Reed, Magic Sam, Little Walter and more.
Featuring: Geoff Busby: Blues Harp/Vocals; Al James: Guitar/vocals; Marc Gordon: Guitar: Vern Tebbutt: Cajon/Drums/Percussion; Chris Harwood: Upright/Electric Bass.
