Eddie Shaw and the Wolf Gang

Fronting his own band, the Wolf Gang, former Howlin’ Wolf sideman Eddie Shaw cranks out an impressive and explosive set of blues. The band also features former Howlin’ Wolf bass player Shorty Gilbert.

Shaw first made a name for himself with a gritty sax tone while backing such legendary performers as Muddy Waters, Magic Sam, and Otis Rush. He and the Wolf Gang received nominations for W.C. Handy Awards in 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, and 2003 and have released two live albums, Papa Told Me and Live at the Time Out Pub.
