The Avery Wolves Bio
The formation of the hard-hitting and high energy psychobilly band from Fairbanks, Alaska began with founding members Nathan Harris and Jason Dahlke in 2010. Nathan and Jason's love of psychobilly led the two on a search for a guitarist, Danny Palomino, who coined the name. Danny later left the band and Dave Keller joined as the new guitarist the following year.
What followed the formation of the band was an onslaught of shows at local venues, fairs, festivals, the winning of three band Battles, and a quick growing fan base from across the state. The Wolves released their first album in 2011, a five song EP entitled Wreckin' with the Wolves, recorded at a mortuary where Nathan worked and lived in at the time. With the release of the album, the band made plans to do a west coast tour, which was planned to end in Long Beach, California at the Ink N Iron festival where they were accepted to play. Because of issues with transportation, the tour had to be canceled, which only added more fuel to the fire for the band to want to expand shows out of state. The band's popularity and reputation have contributed to them opening for The Reverend Horton Heat, Papa Roach, Andrew W.K., and The Young Dubliners.
With roots in punk, rockabilly, country, and surf music, The Avery Wolves are influenced by many artists ranging from Glenn Danzig and The Nekromantix, to Zombie Ghost Train and Mad Sin.
After several lineup changes within the band over the years and a small hiatus, the band reunites to continue wreckin' with the original upright bass player and singer, Nathan Harris, guitarist Dave Keller, and Barbie Keller on drums.
