Our weekly gig at Looney's is over
The city of Oakland has cracked down on Looney's having live music without a cabaret license. Hopefully they will get licensed soon and we can start up again. It's a shame that the city insists on impeding businesses and entertainment by requiring such stringent licensing for live music.

New Weekly Gig in Oakland!
Starting in 2010, Little Wolf will be appearing at Looney's Southern BBQ in Oakland every Thursday evening from 7-11pm.   This is a new Looney's location just opened accross the street from the Children's Hospital on Martin Luther King Blvd.  We have been doing some shows there already and the crowd is growing.  Come on out and check this out.  Great bar and excellent food, in a large quality venue.

Video of our show at the Vacaville Creek Walk Concert: WATCH NOW
This was a great event. We were really surprised by the turnout and enthusiasm of this town. We are told that there were over 3000 people at this concert, and we were the only band. The weather was great, the sound was great, and the fans were great. Thanks Vacaville, hope to see you again next year!

Festivals in June 2008:
Little Wolf and the Hellcats played two festivals in June: the Novato Art, Wine, and Music Festival; and the Vacaville Creekwalk Summer Consert Series. The Vacaville show drew 3000+ people to the Little Wolf only early evening music event. Needless to say we were very happy to be there and the crowd seems pretty pleased as well.
