Walter “Wolfman” Washington & The Roadmasters
Walter â€œWolfmanâ€ Washington cut his teeth backing up some of the best singers and performers in New Orleans history before putting together his long time band The Roadmasters. His singing is emotional and heartfelt. His guitar work is intricate, intimate, and full. Few musical acts, if any, do what he does. He is real, authentic, and unique.
The result is an energetic blend of classic soul and modern pop, as the band transcends the “retro” tag that described their early releases in favor of a more unique sound reflective of all ten personalities, with influences running the gamut from James Brown to Michael Jackson. Bright, bold horns dance and leap over a funky rhythm section, while Harkrider’s soulful voice shimmers out alongside gorgeous female harmonies.
