Formed in Worcester, Massachusetts these American rockers are known as “The Bad Boys from Boston.” What began as a group of five guys singing the blues transformed into a rock and roll band opening for Aerosmith. Their hit song, “Centerfold,” lasted six weeks at the number one spot on Billboard Hot 100 and helped land them as a finalist nominee at the 2011 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. According to lead vocalist Peter Wolfe, “we’re no frills, no tricks, just hard, sweaty rock 'n roll and when we hit the stage it’s showtime!” Join The J. Geils Band as they Rock the Harbor on August 31st. Special guests for the evening will be The Matthew Facciolla Band and Handsome Jack.
