Joyous Wolf at The Roxy on The Sunset Strip

Road Runner recording artists, and Orange County natives, Joyous Wolf opened a night of Rock N Roll on the Sunset Strip’s legendary Roxy Theater.  My first encounter with Joyous Wolf was at The Whisky a Go Go earlier this year, when they opened for Tuesday’s Ultimate Jam Night.  My review of that show can be found here.  

Since then, they have been signed to Road Runner Records and have toured the nation extensively.  They have been on the bill for Rocklahoma, Carolina Rebellion, Rock on the Range, Rockville, Northern Invasion, and Rock Allegiance, among others.  In fact, at this year’s Las Rageous, their set was cut short when frontman Nick Reese scaled the stage truss pissing off security.  Words fall short for a proper and just description of the energy of a Joyous Wolf show.  It is said that youth is wasted on the young, however, it is clear that these boys are truly living life to the fullest and making Southern California’s Rock Scene proud.

Last night’s show was much more refined than the previous show I witnessed and even my colleague in the music business who was in attendance mentioned that this show was even better than last week’s show in Orange County.  Joyous Wolf have been steadily gaining a true and loyal well deserved following.  With so many bands that I come across, and some of which I am friends with in L.A., I am careful to not give away endorsements like candy.  However, I tell everyone I can about these guys, and highly recommend that you see them live.
