"GOD, CAN THIS WOMAN SING! It's as if a vocalist from the great post-war blues and jazz combos had been transported to the end of the century." - Blues Access Magazine
"Kim Nalley has pipes to burn and works the stage like she means it." - San Francisco Chronicle
Little Wolf and the Hellcats
Born in Chester, Texas, Little Wolf is a two-time Bay Area Blues Society Hall of Fame Award Winner. Besides being one of the few “real deal” blues singers on the scene today, Little Wolf is a fine drummer and a walking encyclopedia of the genre. We are proud to brag that David Sobel, SFHDC’s CEO, is a founding member of the Hellcats, having met and joined up with Little Wolf nearly a decade ago. This evening’s performance will also feature the incomparable Dave Workman on Guitar, Tony Coleman on drums and Ellen Schoenwetter on bass—all well respected veterans of the region’s music scene. Check them out HERE.
