Joyous Wolf – Mohegan Sun Arena, CT.

“Joining the veteran rockers are relative new comers, Joyous Wolf. These guys did a great job matching the intensity of their established headliners. I really like what I heard online as I prepared for the show, but live, blown away! Mixing old school rock vibes, with modern grooves and sounds. The stage show? oh, you need to see it for yourself.” –  I made THIS statement March 31st after seeing Joyous Wolf  for the first time in their support role of Buckcherry at The Chance Theater in Poughkeepsie NY.

Well here we are, seven months later and this statement needs a little editing:

“Joining the veteran rockers Deep Purple, are relative new comers, Joyous Wolf. I was blown away the first time I saw them live and listen to their album regularly. Well this time, they were performing in a 9,500 seat area, and they owned it. If the first time I saw them they were on 10, well this time 20. Does it go up that high? It was insane!

Mixing old school rock vibes, with modern grooves and sounds. Joyous Wolf is a band every rock fan needs to check out.

To learn more about them check out our interview from the March show HERE.

Being direct support for a band like Deep Purple put them in front of some big crowds, but I imagine getting, let’s be honest, fans of this generation to like something new can’t be an easy feat. If anyone can win over a crowd, its front man Nick Reese. He was relentless in his performance, working the crowd to win them over.

Pick up their latest album “A Place in Time” and check out their latest video for the song Quiet Heart. Make sure to check our photo gallery from the show as well as our previous coverage!
