Francis and the Wolf: Longmont's American Rock and Roll Band

Francis and the Wolf is a self-described “American rock and roll band founded on love for a solid groove, melodic guitars, and a song that has something to say”. Over the past year, the Longmont-based four-piece have been delving into new sounds, added a new bass player, and have played a slew of shows at The Roost. Francis and the Wolf’s current lineup consists of Aaron Wardle (vocals), Sam Brewer (guitar), Joshua Quesada (drums), and Ryan Hartkopf (bass).

Listen to Francis and the Wolf’s live performance of their tune “Ol’ Lady”:

FATW first began jamming together at Groben Bart, and just a few months ago, made their debut into the Boulder music scene with a show at Shine. Since then, Francis and the Wolf have played a number of Colorado shows, and are actually slated to play Liquid Mechanics Brewing next Saturday, July 30th. Grab show details here.
