Amaturo Theater at The Broward Center for the Performing Arts
Walter “Wolfman” Washington has been a mainstay in the New Orleans music scene since the early 1960s. He cut his teeth backing up some of the best singers and performers in New Orleans history including Lee Dorsey, JohnnyAdams, and Irma Thomas before putting together his long time band The Roadmasters, who have been burning down and burning up local and national stages since their first gigs in the 1980s.
Walter uses his voice to embody both those traditions with a slow burn intensity filtering his smooth croon through a unique, raw blues feel. The result is subtle, tasteful, and powerful. His guitar playing has that searing tone but also the well placed chords of a bebop player, jazzy and improvised in such a way that keeps you on the edge of your seat wondering what he’ll do next.
