Rock, Hard Rock, Blues
Lone Wolf James – Vocals/Guitars, Brian Sachs – Drums, Ron Vieira – Electric Guitar, Jeff Holmes – Bass
Formed in 1997 as a solo acoustic act, Lone Wolf James was originally an outlet for the songwriting talents of Boston based musician Gary Lone Wolf James, performing his own unique hybrid of Hard Rock/Blues/Funk.
Lone Wolf James released several albums in the acoustic/electric rock genre and received many accolades, including the Alternative News Magazine’s award for ‘Best Male Vocalist’ and election into the Music Meter Hall Of Fame. After placing first in the nationwide Emergenza Festival and signing an endorsement deal with Millennia Guitars, Lone Wolf James was offered and accepted an invitation from Steven Van Zandt [Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band] to perform on the wildly popular ‘Little Steven’s Underground Garage Showcase’. Trading in the acoustic for a heavy duty electric setup and putting a talented band together, James continued his musical assault while on the local scene, building up a reputation as a hardworking, no- holds barred, take no prisoners rock band. Lone Wolf James has shared the platform with Theory Of A Deadman, Alterbridge, Candlebox, Black Stone Cherry, Jefferson Starship, Eddie Money, John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band, along with many others, always to rave reviews. The year 2012 had the band sharing the bill with rock legends ZZ Top and Lynyrd Skynyrd, a professional and personal highlight. Featuring James on guitar and vocals, the flame-fingered Ron Vieira on guitar, the thumping clockwork precision of bassist Jeff Holmes and the thundering pound of drummer Brian ‘Thor’ Sachs, Lone Wolf James is now a full-fledged hard rock act performing on the biggest stages with some of rock and rolls biggest names.
