Shane Piasecki and the Lone Wolf Hippies will perform Saturday, July 29, at 7 p.m. on The District Stage in downtown Port Clinton.
Piasecki formed the band five years ago, teaming with bassist David Morris and drummer Mark Sentle, both with extensive experience on the Toledo music scene. Sentle came up on the jazz playing with Gene Parker.
Morris, who attended Toledo School for the Arts, started performing with The Good, the Bad and the Blues when the band was a finalist in the International Blues Competition.
The trio can play “authentic versions of covers” and a lot of Piasecki’s originals. The band also performs tunes from his earlier recordings because they’re popular with his local fans.
Piasecki has also has benefited from working with his musical elders in Nashville. He records with bassist Dave Roe, who played in Johnny Cash’s last band. Roe has hooked him up with talented session players in Nashville. That’s also affected his song writing.
Whether it’s country, blue rock, or jazz, he said he “respects the songwriters and legends” who came before him.
