Lone Wolf One Man Band, Ashley Rivera and Jeff Banks perform for an evening of Blues, Country, Appalachian, Southern Folk and more!
Lone Wolf is a one man band (OMB) that consists of Bruno Esposito singing raspy, dirty, vocals, playing slide banjo, bass drum with his left foot and giving a thumb tap rhythm against the banjo's snare like drum, while picking the strings and playing harmonica. This style creates a unique, real, authentic sound that is unlike anything you've ever heard. His love for the blues, Appalachian, and Punk really stand out in his music.
Growing up, singer / songwriter Ashley Rivera was influenced by the traditional country music her mother sang and the legendary rock music her father loved to play. Later, this mixture would form her own musical style. "I love the truth, the pain in country music, and I love the guts of rock 'n' roll."
Rivera began singing professionally at the age of ten. Since then, she has built a resume worthy of envy. She has been named the Georgia Country Music Association's Female Entertainer of the Year twice, and has also garnered accolades for Vocalist of the Year, Songwriter of the Year, and Band of the Year at both state and national levels. She has opened in concert for Little Big Town, The Atlanta Rhythm Section, The Average White Band, Ronnie Milsap, and many more artists. (Her favorite so far? "Ronnie Milsap! I am a huge fan of his. He's one of the best performers I've ever seen.")
Ashley has performed well over 1000 shows in her young career, and today she continues to tour with her live band and record new original songs.
