“Wulfers is a gifted and clever songwriter. The songs convey inspired stories that practically fill the emotional continuum. Add to that his strong rich vocals and you have got a 1st class, 1st-rate artist”
-Roots Music Report

“If you look up the phrase ‘Renaissance man’ while flipping through a dictionary, it will describe such a person as someone “who has acquired profound knowledge or proficiency in more than one field.” Being a professional musician in the new music paradigm fairly requires a level of acumen in diverse disciplines. Even artists with management need to be versed in social media, recording technology and the Internet, in addition to being accomplished musicians with a tireless and diligent work ethic. And being a successful musician also takes luck, and luck favors the prepared. Ted Wulfers is just that sort of artist. He has recorded five albums in eight years, including Lucky No. 7, which was released in January of 2013. He tours nationally as well as holding court at a weekly residency in Los Angeles, while splitting his time between L.A. and his hometown of Chicago. Wulfers owns and manages his own vintage recording studio, makes appearances on other artists’ albums, scores music for video games, and still found time to catch a fish sizable enough to be featured in an exhibit in Chicago’s Field Museum of Natural History. His live shows are sometimes a Springsteen-esque three to four hours in length, and if you want to learn how to earn a living in music, listen up, but stay out of Ted Wulfers’ way.”
-Joe Armstrong of Independent’s Day Radio

-“His music speaks from the soul. Midwestern rock n’ roll is the distinct style of musician Ted Wulfers.”
-ABC, WLS Chicago

“If I had a car, I’d definitely want this sticker”

November 4, 2016

Ted Wulfers writes and releases “The Cubs Won It All in 2016″ Thursday morning, November 3 and by Friday, November 4 it is a hit song and a new Sports Classic!!

It’s not very often that a song is written and recorded in a couple of hours and then hours later is featured on one of the biggest radio stations in the United States! It’s even more unique that within hours of the radio play, people are buying the song and taking it to the cemeteries where their loved ones are buried and playing the song for the headstones.  But then again, it’s not very often that the Chicago Cubs win the World Series.

After the Chicago Cubs won the 2016 World Series in Cleveland, OH in the early morning of Thursday, Nov 3, around 2:30am PST, singer/songwriter Ted Wulfers was driving on the famous Mulholland Drive on his way home from a celebratory Hollywood gathering of Chicago natives cheering, crying and hugging, still in disbelief that the Chicago Cubs had finally won the World Series.  They had finally won it all in 2016.

While driving the twisting and turning roads, basking in the silence and the open window breeze, Wulfers recollected all of the people in his life who were no longer with him who he wished he could tell in person that the Cubs had gone all the way.  And suddenly, this idea turned into a song.

Wulfers arrived at his San Fernando Valley recording studio around 3am with most of the song written in his head but he knew he had some work to do.   By 4am, he had finished the lyrics and recorded the lead vocal and acoustic guitar track live in one take.  He then overdubbed some electric guitars, an electric bass, a pedal steel track, a tambourine and some harmonica.  By 6am, the song was mixed and ready for release.  By 7am, it started to sell and be shared on social media and later in the day it was cued up for the radio and television airwaves.

The legendary Chicago radio DJ Lin Brehmer cued it up on Chicago’s 93.1 WXRT for airplay throughout the day on Friday, Nov 4 as 5,000,000 Cubs fans flocked to the streets of Chicago to celebrate at the Cubs rally parade and be a part of the largest gathering of humanity at one time in American history.

The reaction to the song was enormous and Ted’s new song provided the perfect soundtrack to these joyful Cubs fans and captured the emotions that so many of them were feeling as they were celebrating. Amidst the happiness, there were also tearful that so many of their ancestors and loved ones were never able to share in that joy while alive.   People began buying the song and taking the recording to Wrigley Field and playing it for the names of the people they had written in chalk on the hallowed walls of the friendly confines.  They took the recording to the cemeteries where their loved ones are buried and played the song for the headstones.  The connection was real and the emotions at an all time high. Wulfers tapped into just what they were feeling and how they were reacting during this incredible moment in history.

Whereas other famous sports songs are hopeful, “The Cubs Won It All In 2016″ is an historical account of the happenings of Game 7 of the 2016 World Series.  Wulfers mentions in the lyrics how the game was tied in the 9th inning and the rain began to fall forcing a rain delay.  He also describes the winning play where Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant fielded the ball and threw to first baseman Anthony Rizzo for the final out to win the World Series.  Wulfers sounds like he’s crying into the microphone when he says “Holy Cow.”  And who can blame him…emotions run high for sports fans, and this particular subject and game will go down as one of the all time greatest moments in sports and American history.    Fans of the song have had special connections with some of the Cubs history that Wulfers talks about.  He alludes to Harry Caray, Jack Brickhouse, Ernie Banks and Ron Santo and mentions members of the last Cubs team to win a World Series in 1908. The famous triple play combo of Joe Tinker, Johnny Evers and manager/first baseman Frank Chance made legend in the poem by Franklin Pierce Adams. He even makes a reference to the Lakeview Baseball Club Rooftop’s famous expression of “Eamus Catuli” which means “Go Cubs Go,” in latin and how the original rooftop kept a time and day reminder of how long it had been since the Cubs last won a World Series and how now the Racky family would finally have the honor of turning all the numbers back to “AC 00 00 00″ 

“The Cubs Won It All In 2016″ is also a brand new song that is a continuation of the troubadour tradition of Chicago Cubs songs that Steve Goodman began, Eddie Vedder continued and now Ted Wulfers carries on as part of a younger generation summing up the feelings so many lifelong Cubs and sports fans are basking in.  In one of the verses, Wulfers pays an homage to the story line of the Steve Goodman classic “A Dying Cubs Fan’s Last Request” where Ted proudly tells Steve somehow through the ether that the “Cubs are finally the best.”

Wulfers’ connection with Goodman is big since in 2008, Ted became the subject of international sports and world news as the singer who lost a gig because he played Steve Goodman’s classic “Go Cubs Go” at Miller Park in Milwaukee and landed Wulfers on the cover of many newspapers and magazines and as the subject of many TV and Radio talk shows during the 2008 Chicago Cubs playoffs run.

The Cubs winning the World Series is the joy and beauty that Cubs and sports fans are celebrating around the world.  All of the failed seasons or blown plays are forgotten.  The curses are over and the water is under the bridge.  Humanity has been cleansed and slates wiped clean and human spirit is given a boost.  It is a reminder of the power of faith, hope and persistence that remains eternal and every now and then shines a sunny light on the human existence.   Those lights shined extra bright under the cloudy skies of Cleveland’s Progressive Field on November 2nd into the wee hours of November 3rd.

What Wulfers created in a matter of hours will supply Cubs and sports fans a lifetime of joy and happiness and although “having another catch” or telling them in person is no longer an option, Ted’s song will allow them to speak through music to those no longer with them, and celebrate the emotional and historic fact that there is no longer the need for the phrase “maybe next year” because……

Yeah The Cubs Won It All In 2016
Hey Chicago…whammy say?”

“Santa Fe Reporter Pick of the week – Ted Wulfers is a singer-songwriter multi-instrument from the Chicago area.  Ted Wulfers has reportedly drawn comparisons to Tom Petty and Wilco (both pretty sweet acts).  You want to see Ted Wulfers”
-Santa Fe Reporter

“Wulfers says that he’s on a mission to “save” rock ‘n’ roll. He unabashedly plays a straight-ahead mix of country, rock and his own secret sauce. In his talented hands, it comes across as kick-ass, no-pretense rock.
-Pasadena Weekly

“Ted Wulfers is a pop-rock cowboy that follows influences of Cajun music along with equal parts Motley Crue and John Cougar Mellencamp with energy reminiscent of early Lenny Kravitz.”
-Maximum Ink

“Ted Wulfers might be a Midwestern Jimmy Buffett and like Bruce Springsteen and his E Street Band, Wulfers takes his roots pop to the big stage for big-time guitar grandiosity and epic calls to romance. Rising above your average blue-collar rocker, Wulfers wraps all the elements of his band together stylishly.”
-Daily Herald

“Ted Wulfers provides some nice thrills”
-PopMatters.com

“Even while performing with the sole-companionship of a guitar, his stage antics resembled those of a full-band show. Emulating trumpet and slide guitar sounds and creating the illusion of rhythmic drumbeats with several taps to his microphone, he satisfied both new and old fans.  He has the ability to infuse old music with new music and has an eclectic, unique style.”
-University of La Verne Campus Times

October 20, 2014 – The Examiner

“Ted Wulfers, born and raised in the Chicagoland area and based in Los Angeles, is an American Singer, Songwriter, Recording Artist, Multi-Instrumentalist, Producer and Composer. He has released eight albums including six as a solo artist and two with his 1990s band, Beggar’s Bridge. Primarily known for Heartland Rock ‘n Roll, Americana, Blues, Pop, Alt. Country and Ukulele, Wulfers has also scored and performed soundtracks for video games and films in the Classical and Jazz Genres. Classically trained on Piano since the age of 3, Wulfers taught himself Guitar, Bass, Organ, Drums, Ukulele, Lap Steel, Pedal Steel, Dobro, Mandolin, Banjo, Cello, Harmonica and employs much of his four and a half octave vocal range throughout his recordings and live shows. Well known for playing most of the instruments on his albums, he has also featured some of the world’s best and well known musicians to back him up. His ability as a performer to connect with listeners keeps him busy for 50-200 shows a year. [from Ted Wulfers biography]

“I met MER through mutual friends on the interwebs,” states Wulfers. “I respected him from afar, but that respect grew immensely after seeing him perform live. He is a special talent with a wonderful spirit and a kind heart. He is doing big things for Chicago music. I grew up in Chicago and cut my teeth in the music industry in Chicago. Even though I live in Los Angeles, Chicago will always be my hometown and it is a few folks in a musical community like MER that make coming back to Chicago special. It’s always fun to play Chicago and I’ve played almost every venue in the market, but what makes MER’s showcase really great is his sense of community and bringing artists together to share their talents but who also may be inspired to form friendships and work together. MER rocks, so I feel great and honored to be a part of his showcases.”

Listen to Here We Go by Ted Wulfers (released January 8th, 2013) on SoundCloud here.”

December 18, 2013 – The Examiner

“Once again your rockin’ writer felt the need to resurrect his “Listen Again” series. For those of you just joining us, the “Listen Again” series is a series in which we revisit albums that for one reason or another didn’t receive the attention or acclaim they deserved when they were originally released. Whether it was the recording was ahead of its time, broke away from the artist’s usual style, was poorly publicized or initially misunderstood, the “Listen Again” series urges music fans to listen again.

This time we revisit Ted Wulfers’ What Would Santa Do? But first, for those readers who may not be up on all their indie artists, Ted Wulfers is an L.A.-based singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist. His signature sound is a blend of what he calls “ Heartland rock, Stadium pop, Stonesy swagger, California cool and Texas twang” the likes of such other artists as Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen. It’s basically real, honest rock.

In this case, the album in question is an 8-track collection of seasonal songs unlike the holiday hits to which we’ve all grown accustomed. This 2009 Patchwork Records release is a refreshing change of pace from the usual festive fare.
Wulfers who wrote all but one song on the album leads the way with his lead vocals, guitar, bass, ukuleles, keys, lap steel, drums, vibraphone, percussion and jingle bells.

The album opener is titled “Wishin’ It Were Xmas”. It’s a good, upbeat holiday intro featuring Aaron Weistrop (guitar and backing vocals), Dave Raven (drums), Taras Prodaniuk (bass) and Diana Rein, Mark Cantwil and Mark Lonsway (backing vocals).

The second selection is the titular track “What Would Santa Do?” This one is an almost swampy blues rocker that focuses on the dilemma one has when faced with a woman who doesn’t want anything fancy for the holiday just some quality time. It ponders: “What would Santa do” in the situation? It includes Dave Raven (drums), Steve Leinheiser (saxophone), Carey Deadman (trumpet), Dan Johnson (trombone), Mark Lonsway (backing vocals) and Prodaniuk encores on bass.

The next number is “Mistletoes”. This is a nice number with an apropos holiday wish. Yes, it’s unfortunate we can’t have mistletoe all over so that we could kiss a woman whenever we chose to do so. It includes Jeff Kelly on drums.

“The Ditty Bop Hop” follows here. This is more of a jazzy swing number that might not have much of a tie-in to Christmas but the holidays are about enjoying ourselves and listeners can certainly enjoy this one. Guest artists include: Aaron Weistrop (lead guitar), Dave Raven (drums), Gary Morse (pedal steel), Ruben Ramos (upright bass), Carl Byron (piano and accordion) and Diana Rein (backing vocals).

“San Luis Obispo” comes in next. This tuneful tip of the hat to Wulfers’ then present home is also not exactly a Christmas song. Still, it’s a nice number and comes across almost as something Jimmy Buffet would do. It’s a laid back song that tells the tale of Wulfers’ search for a place to hang his hat (and store his instruments) between live gigs.

(Having spent a couple of romantic weekends there your rascally writer can assure you from what he saw driving to and from the motel Wulfers’ description is quite accurate.) The song is fleshed out with the aid of Ted Russell Kamp (trumpet) and Dave Phenice (backing vocals). Additionally, Byron returns on accordion, Deadman encores on trumpet, Johnson sits in again on trombone and Cantwill is back on backing vocals.

While “The Hanukkah Blues” does, indeed, fulfill the unspoken obligation to mention Hanukkah, it brings the focus back on the winter holidays. It’s another good blues cut and while one might feel for the character in the track’s tale, one cannot help but smile at the choice of lyrics. This was co-composed with Weistrop (guitar and mandolin) and Raven returns on drums.

The seventh selection is “Ukulele Xmas”. This seasonal song also has an island influence. (In fact, it makes your pensive penman pause to reflect on his birth state Hawaii.)

The album’s end-note is “Xmas In A Bar”. While the title might bring to mind Randy Stonehill’s “Christmas At Denny’s” there is little comparison in terms of musical mood. Wulfer’s song seems to have been written from a bar and the alcohol surely seems to make things merrier. It’s a rockin’ closing cut (featuring the return of Kelly on drums and Lonsway on backing vocals) and beforeChristmas concludes some folks might find themselves secretly wishing to be at that very same bar.

With a running time of almost 32 minutes, Wulfers’ version of a seasonal song fest could be just the thing to add some variety to your own winter wonderland. If you’ve never listened to Ted WulfersWhat Would Santa Do, listen to it. If you’ve already listened to it . . . listen again.

My name is Phoenix and . . . that’s the bottom line.”

April 17, 2013 – The Examiner

“Your crusty chronicler is an individual who does his own thing. Still, when Examiner asked for support for their new “List” format, it was nigh impossible not to be open-minded about it. So, with that spirit of unity and teamwork in mind, your rockin’ reviewer presents this series—“Track by Track” in which we shall review certain select CDs literally “track by track”.

L.A.-based singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Ted Wulfers’ most recent release, Lucky No. 7 is 15 tracks of his signature sound born of a blend of what he calls “ Heartland rock, Stadium pop, Stonesy swagger, California cool and Texas twang” the likes of such other artists as Tom Petty and even Bruce Springsteen. It’s essentially real, honest rock ‘n’ roll that seems born of a near passionate love of the genre.

Wulfers leads the way with his vocals, acoustic and electric guitar, ukulele and percussion. While he plays bass and keys on some tracks he is generally backed by a bevy of other artists as well. The album opens on “When You Run”. It’s a strong opener although doesn’t fully demonstrate Wulfers capabilities. It includes Stonehoney’s Phil Hurley on lead guitar, Shooter Jennings’ Ted Russel Kamp on electric bass, Dave Raven (Keith Richards) on drums, Gary Morse (Brooks and Dunn) on pedal steel, Carl Byron on keys and backing vocals by Mark Cantwil and Mark Lonsway.

The second selection is “Dreams Come True”. This one is highlighted by Aaron Weistrop on lead guitar, Kenny Aronoff (John Mellencamp/John Fogerty) on drums, Chris Lawrence on pedal steel and Taras Prodaniuk (Lucinda Williams/Dwight Yoakam) on electric bass. Byron encores on keys and Cantwil and Lonsway return to provide backing vocals along with Stonehoney (Hurley, Shawn Davis, Nick Randolph and Dave Phenicie).

The next number is “Here We Go”. This is the first single off the album and appropriately so as it screams single. It has already garnered Top 40 and Hot AC radio play across the country. Here Wulfers is backed by the tuneful talents of Gyron encoring on keys, Kamp again on electric bass, Raven on drums and Cantwil once again on backing vocals.

“Break My Heart” follows here. The music takes on a slightly alt-country tinge here thanks in part to Lawrence’s pedal steel. Also featured on this cut are Aaron Weistrop on electric guitar, Matthew Baumann on tambourine, Aronoff on drums, Kamp on electric bass, the ever-present Byron on keys and Dave Carducci, Cantwil, Davis and Randolph again on backing vocals.

“Me & Miss 4th of July” is one of those songs that would go great on a July 4th playlist. It’s vaguely appropriate, new and yet of a familiar genre. This track is highlighted by the work of Doug Pettibone (Lucinda Williams/Mark Knopfler) on lead guitar and Gina Cappella-Drohl on percussion. It also includes encore performances by Aronoff on drums, Kamp on electric bass, Baumann on tambourine, Byron on keys and Cantwil, Lonsway and all of Stonehoney again on backing vocals.

“More Than a Mystery”

The sixth selection is “More Than a Mystery”. It’s a great piece that reflects upon the wonder of a supportive, constant lover who is always there for you. It includes Pettibone on lead guitar , Byron on accordion, Prodaniuk on electric bass, Raven on drums and Cantwil and Stonehoney providing backing vocals.

“Heavens to Betsy”

“Heavens to Betsy” follows here. Wulfers’ welcomes the bass work of Aron Topleski bass and the vocals of Claire Holley. His signature sound is once more backed by Baumann on tambourine, Byron on keys, Lawrence on pedal steel, Raven on drums and Weistrop on electric guitar. The track is fleshed out with the supporting vocals of Cantwil, Carducci, Davis and Randolph.

“Stars”

“Stars” is another example of Wulfers abilities. Here Wulfers introduces the audience to the work of Mike Fratantuno (Black Eyed Peas/Gossip Girl) on electric bass, Rami Jaffee (Foo Fighters/Wallflowers) on Hammond organ and John Payne (ASIA/ELO) on backing vocals. Returning to strengthen the song is Aronoff on drums, Lawrence on pedal steel, Cappella-Drohl on percussion and Cantwil and Lonsway also on backing vocals.

“The Rock & the Roll”

“The Rock & the Roll” adds the voices of Gia Ciambotti (Bruce Springsteen/RodStewart), Diana Rein and Nicole Gordon, Haroula Rose and L.P. on backing vocals to the disc. (Cantwil remains as well.) Wulfers, who throws in a bit of cowbell a laBlue Oyster Cult remains ably backed by Aronoff on drums, Jaffee on Hammond organ and Kamp returns on electric bass.

“Stay (for a Lil’ While)”

“Stay (for a Lil’ While)” is a song on which Wulfers acknowledges some of the artists who inspire him: “Bob Dylan gets me thinkin’ and Tom Waits gets me drinkin’”. Guest musicians are still plentiful including Lawrence again on pedal steel, Cantwil and Lonsway again on backing vocals, Byron on keys, Raven on drums and Weistrop on electric guitar and backing vocals.

“What R U Doin’ 2nite?”

“What R U Doin’ 2nite?” is another noteworthy number. Wulf’s signature sound continues to prevail and Lawrence’s pedal steel is almost a constant as well but the addition of other artists and different instruments make a difference in each song’s musical identity. Byron returns on keys, Jeff Kelly adds his drums and Holley encores on backing vocals.

“Jade in My Pocket”

“Critic’s Choice” goes to one of the fan favorites–“Jade in My Pocket”. This is truly one of the best tracks on the album. It just plain works thanks in part to Carducci Payne, Davis and Cantwil on backing vocals, Raven’s return on drums, Weistrop on electric guitar and Byron on keys.

“Carolina Stars”

“Carolina Stars” comes next. This one somehow manages to add something to the mix while not stealing the thunder of any of the other cuts. This track introduces the new voice of Robin Wiley. Morse encores on lap steel, Cantwil, Ciambotti, Gordon, Holley and Rose return on backing vocals as Raven remains on drums. Prodaniuk picks up the bass again with Byron and Weistrop on keys and lead guitar respectively.

“Friday Night High”

Fan favorite “Friday Night High”introduces Matthew Ciccone on Hammond organ and Nate Britsch on bass. Wulfers once more adds cowbell for accent to his tuneful talents backed by Weistrop on lead guitar, Aronoff again on drums, Capella-Drohl on percussion, Cantwil and Lonsway back on backing vocals and Baumann with a touch of tambourine again.

“Think of the Good Times”

The album ends on perhaps the finest, most heartfelt song on the entire disc.“Think of the Good Times” is a tribute to the father he lost to cancer while recording the record. In fact, part of the proceeds from the sales of this project goes to the American Cancer Society. It’s initially a slow song which grows into the longest track on the album as Wulfers picks it up with a New Orleans-flavored refrain which musically recalls the good times.

The closing cut introduces Eric Schneider on clarinet and Russ Phillips on trombone. Returning musicians include Jaffee doing double duty on Hammond organ and styolophone, Lawrence on pedal steel, Kamp on upright bass and mandolin, Prodaniuk on electric bass, Raven on drums, Weistrop on electric guitar, Byron on keys and a great backing chorus featuring Ciambotti, Gordon, Holley, Lonsway Rose and Wiley. The album was produced by Wulfers and co-produced and engineered by David Rieley (Elvis Costello) and Eric Corne (Anne McCue).

The musical back-up here is almost overwhelming if not for Wulfers strong, consistent lead vocals. On this release he takes us on a personal journey in song. If you like original tunes steeped in old school rock with plenty of hooks then putTed WulfersLucky No. 7 in your CD player because “Here We Go”!

My name is Phoenix and . . . that’s the bottom line.”

******************************************************
Three songs about San Luis Obispo
Ted Wulfers will be singing the praises of San Luis Obispo when
he comes to Frog & Peach Thursday night.
Literally. The Chicagoan’s song “San Luis Obispo,”
which includes the line “It’s the
only one for me,” was inspired by visits to the Central
Coast.
“I wrote the song, just kind of in my head, driving down
to L.A. from a
show (in San Luis Obispo),” he told me in 2009. “I
play in so many
different towns — I’m just kind of always
wandering. But I just wanted to
document the good times of the town and to give a gift to all
the good
people there.”
The catchy tune, which calls for a Jimmy Buffet cover, does have
one
fault, though: It pronounces it “San Louie
Obispo.”
“I’ve heard San Lou-eece, and I’ve heard
San Louie Obispo,” said Wulfers,
whose new song “Here We Go” has been getting Top
40 radio play. “I have to
say the way I sing it is a little more harmonious. San Luis
Obispo has a
lot of S’s for radio.”
It also has six syllables, which might explain why Weird Al
Yankovic named
his song about San Luis Obispo “Take Me Down”
(three syllables.) Weird Al,
who returns to the Performing Arts Center in SLO Nov. 2, was no
doubt
inspired by his time in San Luis Obispo as a Cal Poly student,
when he
sang, “Where the grass is green and the air is so clean
that when the wind
is right, you can even smell the cows.”
“It talks about Morro Rock, Pismo Beach, the bathrooms at
the Madonna Inn
and how all the stores closed at 5 p.m.,” he told the
Tribune in 2003.
And if that doesn’t meet your San Luis Obispo song needs,
the latest comes
from an unknown Portland band called Quiet Life. Their rootsy
rock song
“San Luis Obispo,” driven by harmonica and slide
guitar, doesn’t say a lot
about the SLO Life, but it does tackle the 7-syllable town with
a correct
pronunciation.
Quiet Life’s website doesn’t say anything about
the band, and when I
emailed them about the song, they never responded. (It’s
called public
relations, boys — figure it out!) So I can’t
really tell you what inspired
their song, why they wrote it, or if they’ve ever even
been to San Luis
Obispo.
And that’s pretty much all the songs I know about San
Luis Obispo. If you
know of any others, drop me a line.

San Luis Obispo The Tribune News – Oct 5, 2011
Morso Wine Bar hosts emotional tribute tonight
It has been an exciting year for Los Angeles Based
Singer/Songwriter Ted
Wulfers. Throughout 2011, his hit single “Here We
Go” has been all over
Top 40/AAA/Hot AC/Americana Radio stations throughout the
country. He has
enjoyed a successful tour throughout 27 states and his Holiday
CD What
Would Santa Do? is selling well and receiving a lot of radio and
TV play.
He was looking forward to several shows throughout the U.S. in
December
including Michael ONeill’s Americana Showcase Series at
Morso Wine Bar in
Gig Harbor Dec 9. Things were going quite well until
last Friday, Dec. 2,
when Wulfers’ father John Wulfers passed away after a
long
illness.
The Chicago born singer was fortunately in Chicago for his
father’s
passing and decided to cancel all shows for the remainder of
2011. That
was until he began flipping through his father’s
calendar/diary and
learned that his father had been planning to try to attend the
Gig
Harbor
show since October and was trying to arrange travel
plans
that he inevitably was unable to make. The Dec 9
performance was the very
last event inputted into John Wulfers’ calendar and Ted
knew he could not
cancel this one.
In August, Wulfers was approached by Gig Harbor’s own
Michael ONeil when
the Singer/Songwriter, Radio Host and Americana Icon approached
Wulfers to
do a radio interview for ONeil’s Who’sBadNow radio
program while Wulfers
was on tour in Seattle. The two hit it off and ONeill
invited Ted to
be
one of the performers at his Americana Showcase Series
featured
at Morso Wine Bar this December.
This will be a very special and emotional performance for
Wulfers, as well
as his last of 2011. This is not a show to be missed.
Ted Wulfers will
be in Gig Harbor at the Morso Wine Bar opening up for Jaime
Wyatt this at
8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 9. Tickets are $25 and the event is almost
sold
out.
Get your tickets now.

time out. Both Jaime and Ted are performing as part of the
Americana Music
Series produced by Michael ONeill and Morso. Tickets are $25 and
can be
purchased at Morso or by calling Morso at 530-3463.
“Last January the Americana Music Series brought us all
Vicci Martinez
just when she was hitting both national and the international
stage. Here
is another artist we want you to catch before they hit their
stride” said
Michael ONeill. Song-writer producer Pete Droge said of the
first time he
heard Jaime Wyatt, “What struck me most was the magnetism
of her voice. It
was so appealing. You hear it and you want to get closer to it.
You can
tell if somebody has that natural presence.”
Jaime is a local girl, graduating from Gig Harbor High School in
2004. At
14, she was avidly writing lyrics in notebooks and working out
chord
progressions on guitar. “I’ve always written songs
and come up with verses
and lyrics,” Wyatt notes, “But I never wanted to
sing in front of people
until I picked up a guitar.” She started performing at
Tacoma’s Antique
Sandwich Club and signed with Lakeshore records at age 17 before
graduating from high school.
Since moving to LA, Jaime has been writing and touring from her
home.
Between her own studio recording and tours, she has shared the
stage with
Lucinda Williams, John Fogerty, John Mellencamp and even landed
on the set
of Desperate Housewives. Writing and recording for nearly a
decade, Jaime
has thrived in working songs into the movies. Wyatt describes
her material
as roots rock with a pop sensibility. The roots part
incorporates some
blues and country influences and there’s a little R&B
groove sometimes,
too.
Jaime also plays with Jane and Jonathan Sheldon in the American
Bloomers.
Their voices blend seamlessly over jangling acoustic guitars and
electric
riffs. They just released their new Part One – EP
Novemebr 15, 2011.
Opening the evening is Ted Wulfers. Ted’s from Chicago
and brings that
mid-west party rock to the table. He is a rootsy rocker and his
combination of heartland rock, stadium pop, stonesy swagger,
California
cool and Texas twang has earned him comparisons to Tom Petty,
Wilco, The
Foo Fighters, Chris Isaak, Dierks Bentley, Kid Rock, Kings of
Leon, Lyle
Lovett and The Wallflowers. His ability as a performer to
connect with
listeners keeps him busy for 50-200 shows a year.
Ted has released 4 CDs and is working on his next one having
released the
single Here We Go in March 2011. All of Ted’s music has
received
significant radio and TV airtime. He has also been featured on
CNN, CNN
Europe and ABC World News as well as in ESPN The Magazine, The
Chicago
Tribune, the LA Times, and the NY Times.

One-Minute Interview: Michael ONeill (Ted Wulfers is Mentioned)
AMERICANA MUSIC SERIES HOST TAKES THE STAGE SATURDAY >>>
Great songwriters are storytellers. Through song they voice
their ideas,
their characters, their feelings and their thoughts. Songwriters
have a
need to not only explore these universalities of the human
experience, but
serve them up in an out-loud voice in front of strangers.
Some things, quite simply, are better said through song.
Michael ONeill has mastered the ability to weave a tale into a
comprehensive tune, evoking deep conviction and stunningly
tender
compassion.
He’s been at it for some time, too. ONeill spent more
than 20 years as a
touring rock and blues troubadour, including stints with Stevie
Ray
Vaughan, Bob Weir and Steve Cropper. Today, he prefers to tell
stories
with a country fiddle and steel guitar.
This past year ONeill has expanded his voice into radio and
concert
promotions. He hosts the area’s only Americana, roots,
alt-country radio
show, “Who’s Bad Now Radio,” Tuesday at
7 p.m. on KGHP-FM. And he brings
stories to the stage with his Americana Music Series, Saturday
nights at
Morso Wine Bar in Gig Harbor. Kevin Montgomery, Steve Poltz,
Vicci
Martinez, Tommy Tutone, Peter Case, Grant Peeples and Robbie
Walden have
all performed before the wine-swilling crowd.
Saturday, the music series celebrates its first anniversary.
ONeill will
take the performance reins on this one. The Weekly Volcano
tossed a few
questions at ONeill before the party.
WEEKLY VOLCANO: Congratulations, Michael. Where are you taking
Saturday
night’s performance?
MICHAEL ONEILL: Thanks. I will be doing songs from all six of my
recordings – songs and guitars – from Dream On,
From the Beginning, Who’s
Bad Now and the others.
VOLCANO: The promotional materials state you’ll be bring
in special guests
for the show.
ONEILL: Yup. I have confirmations from Jon Parry Fiddle, Orville
Johnson,
Gary Ballard and my old pal Tommy (Tutone) Heath. I am looking
forward to
a wonderful crowd of friends and family to gather Saturday night
and lift
up songs and glasses then bring on the new season.
VOLCANO: So the Americana Music Series lives on. Who’s
performing this
coming year?
ONEILL: Hell yes. The rest of the year will feature Colin
Gilmore – son of
Jimmie Dale Gilmore – Oct. 6, Take Three Girls Oct. 22,
Elizabeth Cook and
Tim Carrol Nov. 19 and Ted Wulfers Dec. 10.

WOBBLEHOUSE.WORDPRESS.COM – April 23, 2011
From an interview with Ted Russell Kamp. (Ted Wulfers is
Mentioned)
“8.0 – How is the spring tour going? how was
Martyr’s in Chicago?
This spring tour is going very well. It is the cd release tour
too. I am
just finishing up a Midwest run that started in Nashville and
worked it’s
way north to Minneapolis – 12 shows in 12 days. Tonight
is my last show of
the trip. I have toured this part of the country with Shooter
numerous
times but never on my own. It is definitely a step down in terms
of
smaller venues and no tour bus, but I am really proud to be out
on my own
and getting my music out there. I am constantly amazed by the
music lovers
in this world. It seems we are a minority but people really are
looking
for good music and when they find something they love, they
really do
spread the word. It has been really inspiring to see the support
I have
been getting, and fans and friends who really loved some of my
older
records that are very excited to see me live for the first time
and get my
new record. And Martyrs’ was a great show.
It’s a great club. I did that
night with an old friend of mine Ted Wulfers from Chicago. We
have written
a bunch of songs together and have played and sung on each
others’ records
so it was great to do some shows together finally. We called
those shows
the “Ted and Ted” tour. I have also wanted to
play Martyrs’ for years
because there’s a great Chris Whitley record
‘live at Martyrs’ and he is a
musician and artist who is one of my favorites.
9.0 – What tracks from the new disc are you doing live,
does it vary?
It changes from night to night, but I am doing a bunch of the
new ones.
California Wildflower is one. If I Had A Dollar, which has an
old school
Bakersfield sound, goes great acoustically or with the full band
so I have
been doing that a lot. I have been doing Lonelytown, which I
wrote with
Ted. It is a classic California country rock tune with a real
strummy
Byrds influence. We were both playing at the Sturgis Motercycle
Festival a
few years ago so we started writing that one about small town
life. Aces
and Eights is another. It’s a real southern soul tune on
the record and
live it has taken on a J.J. Cale kind of vibe. It’s been
nice to add the
new songs to the set gradually to keep the set list changing so
people are
not seeing the same songs every time they come to see me play.
Changing up
the set also keep me on my toes.”

SCENE 262 – April 16, 2011
I’m With The Band: This Saturday (April 16) full of
great live music in
Racine, Kenosha By Paddy Fineran
The great baseball pitcher Satchel Paige was quoted as saying,
“How old
would you be if you didn’t know how old you
are?” I bring this up because
I’ve been told that my birthday is this weekend. My
birthday wish is that
you act whatever age you want this weekend as long as it gets
you out to a
club to hear some live music. I’m going to go with about
27 years old
myself until people try to buy me shots. Then I’m going
to be 87 years
old.
A good place to head to this weekend, no matter what age you
want to be,
is McAuliffe’s Pub. That’s because the music by
Ted Russell Kamp and Ted
Wulfers is pretty much timeless. Kamp is a roots rocker of note
with
praise for his solo work – his last release was named
one of the top 100
Americana releases of 2008 and the CD before that had Top 40
genre chart
success – and as bass player, songwriter and touring
member of Shooter
Jennings’ band. Ted Wulfers is an established writer and
performer with
radio backing on Hot AC (Alternative Country) and AAA (Adult
Album
Alternative) stations including a lot of adds for his brand new
single
“Here We Go.” While that track is the first
single off his upcoming June
release and is certainly solid, he could very well have more
radio success
with “When You Run” which is a fist pumping,
scorched earth slice of
Gahd-Damn Boy which will connect equally well in small clubs,
Country
Thunder type venues and even stadiums. Well Done.
Ted Russell Kamp and Ted Wulfers perform Saturday, April 16, at
McAuliffe’s Pub, 3700 Meachem Road.

Wulfers started playing piano at age 3. By 13, he had taught
himself
guitar and began playing in bands. In addition to guitar and
piano, he’s
also learned his way around organ, bass, drums and harmonica,
and is a
dynamic frontman who prides himself on the rhythmic variety and
energy of
his live shows. When he realized he was spending more time
onstage and in
recording studios than the classroom, Wulfers left Denison
University
after three years to focus on his flourishing music career.
After spending
more than a decade writing and recording songs and finessing the
finer
points of entertaining in bars, theatres, festivals and clubs,
you could
say he’s earned his master’s degree in audience
communication at Pub Rock
U. His ability as a performer to connect with listeners sets him
far apart

Brewers Ban Musician For Playing “Go Cubs Go!”
This Cubs-Brewers rivalry is really starting to heating up. How
do we know
things are getting serious? A Chicago musician lost his gig at a
Milwaukee
ballpark restaurant – all because he played “Go
Cubs Go!”
The CHICAGO TRIBUNE tells us the ballad of Ted Wulfers, who was
scheduled
to perform Sunday at the TGI Friday’s located inside
Miller Park. Wulfers
had done the same gig back in July – heck, he even sang
the National
Anthem at Miller Park back in May. But it was Ted’s
previous TGIF
performance that had him eliminated from the eatery’s
musical lineup.
Wulfers sang “Go Cubs Go!” during his set at the
restaurant after the
North Siders had defeated the Brewers earlier. And local partons
didn’t
appreciate the enemy-praising encore:
“It was not taken kindly by the Brewers fans,”
said a spokeswoman for TGI
Friday’s. “Friday’s and the Brewers made
the decision not to have this
band back this year.”
Wulfers counter-argued that he was giving the crowd what it
wanted:
“Basically I had compared this to playing ‘Free
Bird’—the crowd just kept
asking for it,” he said, while conceding the crowd was
mostly Cubs fans.
Saying that he’s been both a Cubs & Brewers fan all his
life, Wulfers adds
that he’s “being kicked in the backside for no
reason.”
Maybe Ted should take a page from Billy Sianis, and write up a
little
curse of his own to bedevil the Brewers. And who knows –
maybe Eddie
Vedder will cover it.

CAN’T STOP THE BLEEDING – Sep 29, 2008
Ted Wulfers Didn’t Claw His Way To The Top Of Wisconsin
Show Biz To Go Out
Like This
Tensions are high along the Illinois-Wisconsin border following
the
Milwaukee Brewers’ September 28th clinching of the
National League Wild
Card. Chicago musician Ted Wulfers was the first to
fall victim to the
regional instability when he was expelled from a long-running
performance
engagement at a Milwaukee TGI Fridays.
Jason George of the Chicago Tribune reports:
Ted Wulfers never thought that singing Steve Goodman’s
“Go Cubs Go” could
get you fired, but that’s just what happened to the
Chicago musician over
the weekend. Wulfers was scheduled to perform Sunday at a TGI
Friday’s
inside Milwaukee’s Miller Park. But he was uninvited
last week. The
reason? The last time Wulfers performed there in July, he played
“Go Cubs
Go” after a Cubs victory over the Brewers.
It was not taken kindly by the Brewers fans,” said a
spokeswoman for TGI
Friday’s. “Friday’s and the Brewers made
the decision not to have this
band back this year.”
Wulfers, who sang the national anthem in May at Miller Park,
said he had
no idea Brewers fans would be upset with “just one
chorus” from “Go Cubs
Go.”
“Basically I had compared this to playing ‘Free
Bird’”the crowd just kept
asking for it,” he said, while conceding the crowd was
mostly Cubs fans.
“I understand the Brewers are trying to fight for the
wild card,” Wulfers
said before Milwaukee beat the Cubs on Sunday to secure a
playoff spot.
“I’m just kind of the guy being kicked in the
backside for no reason. I’ve
been a Cubs fan and a Brewers fan all my life.”

****************************************************** ESPN THE
MAGAZINE October 2008 By Rick Paulas “A musician caught
in the middle of an intense baseball rivalry,” is how
Ted Wulfers describes himself, a narrative he coined during the
day’s media blitz that saw him interviewed by everyone
from NPR to Fox News, all trying to get his take on “the
incident.” Is he also a good luck charm for the Cubs, or
curse for the Brewers? When we spoke to him Wednesday night,
Wulfers should have been ecstatic—his Cubbies were up
2-0 at the time—but he was still a bit miffed.
“It doesn’t make sense when you’re hired
to entertain everyone and everyone has a good time, and then you
get fired.” Let’s start at the beginning:
Wulfers is a musician based in Chicago whose band specializes in
“American rock-and-roll.” He’d performed
a number of shows at Milwaukee’s Miller Park over the
years. They had become so beloved that Wulfers was invited to
sing the national anthem for the club back in May. He performed
another four shows at the park in July. On July 31st, it all
changed. After that day’s 114 win by the visiting Cubs
over the Brewers, Wulfers and band took the stage at the TGI
Friday’s connected to the Miller Park exterior. They
were playing in front of a crowd of about 500, “490 of
which were Cubs fans.” There, Wulfers took an innocent
request for the popular North Side rally song “Go, Cubs,
Go.” He relented, played the song, and completed his
set. “We played one verse of the song and everyone loved
it,” Wulfers said. “People stayed and bought
thousands of dollars of beer and everyone was happy.”
Everyone, except one very important splinter group. After the
show, Wulfers and his band were immediately booked to come back
September 28th during a Cubs-Brewers tilt that would ultimately
clinch the Wild Card for the Brew Crew. Last Thursday, a mere
three days before the show, while he was getting ready to head
back north, he received notice from the team. The show was
cancelled. Officially, over the “fear and
suspicion” that he was going to play “Go, Cubs,
Go.” “They could have asked me not to play it.
They didn’t,” said Wulfers. “They just
fired me.” “My family was in Milwaukee, I grew
up knowing the Brewers,” Wulfers said. “I was
actually a bat boy for the Brewers during the Paul Molitor/Robin
Yount years. My grandfather was a personal physician for several
of the Milwaukee Braves back in the 50s and 60s.” Which
is precisely why it’s time to take a moment for a brief
commentary: (Since everyone knows you’re not a true
October contender unless you have a well-known curse, the
suggestion in this commentary is that when the Brewers lose this
year‚Äîwhich, let’s be honest, is
inevitable—they should spin this story into a new team
“curse.” The Curse of the Cancelled Gig. Or
maybe, The Curse of the Scorned Ex-Ball Boy. Something like
that. The copywriters can do the heavy lifting. The important
thing is that the Brewers brass don’t miss an
opportunity for a new marketable curse. Besides the
Cubs’ Curse of the Billy Goat, there’s not
really much left for us baseball fans. End commentary.) For his
part, Wulfers wants to make clear he doesn’t hold
anything against the team or the Brewers fans. But, “for
someone constantly on the road like we are, you can’t
afford to cancel a show when you could have booked another show
that day.” Time will tell how the incident can be
parlayed financially. Wulfers admits, “it’s
certainly put my name on Google quite a bit more.” But
for now, Wulfers is just going to enjoy his team in the
playoffs. “It’s 100 hundred years. It’s
an experience. It’s a passion. They’ve had great
pitchers, they’ve had great hitters, they’ve had
great managers, they’ve had great sportscasters, they
have an amazing stadium, but they don’t have a World
Series. It’ll be interesting to see the reaction when,
and if, they finally do.” When asked for a final verdict
on the current Cubs-Dodgers series—Wulfers splits his
time between Sweet Home Chicago and L.A., at least when
he’s not on the road and calling home “anywhere
where he’s standing”his answer was clear:
“Go, Cubs, Go!” Cute. Ted Wulfers can be seen
this Saturday in Cincinnati and Sunday at the Apple Grove
festival in Long Grove, IL. Please visit TedWulfers.com for more

COUNTRYSIDE – October 9, 2008 “Go Brewers
Go” doesn’t have the same ring By Jay Kist
“Go Brewers Go” Doesn’t Have The Same
Ring In what could be his big break moment, songwriter Ted
Wulfers was caught up in a baseball controversy that broke on
the eve of the playoffs. A seasoned and talented musician,
Wulfers played many shows at Milwaukee’s Miller Park
over the summer, including the national anthem in May. At a July
31st show at TGI Friday’s inside the park, where
“490 of the 500 people in the audience were Cubs
fans,” said Wulfers, he played a verse of Steve
Goodman’s unofficial team anthem, “Go Cubs
Go.” Brewers officials were not pleased and 63 hours
before a scheduled Sept. 28 show, he was
“uninvited.” “He got kicked out of
Miller Park for singing ‘Go Cubs Go’ to Cubs
fans,” said WGN radio personality John Williams during
one of numerous media interviews last week. He sang it again
during a local FOX television broadcast from Harry
Caray’s Tavern before the first playoff game. He also
sang “Blue Cubs Hat,” a song he wrote for the
Cubs years ago. “I’ve heard I’ve been
banned,” said Wulfers. “The story was on CNN
Europe. I guess it’s a good rock ‘n roll thing
to be banned from a city and a stadium. But I love the people in
Milwaukee. They’ve been so good to me over the years.
It’s just that I’m a musician caught in a
baseball rivalry.” Wulfers also appeared on ABC World
News TV, ESPN radio and others. His next gig is a benefit in
Cincinnati where legend Mary Wilson opens for his band, then a
European tour in November. Go Ted Go!!!
========================== WISCONSIN STATE JOURNAL – OCT
2 2008 Moe: Goodman’s songs not just for Cub fans by
Doug Moe There is a pretty good song to be written about Ted
Wulfers getting uninvited to sing at Miller Park on Sunday, but
unfortunately Steve Goodman is no longer around to write it. It
was a Goodman song that got Wulfers in trouble in Milwaukee in
the first place, as baseball fever grips the Midwest and the
playoffs begin today. There are all manner of plot lines the
Brewers making the playoffs for the first time in a quarter
century, the Cubs looking for a World Series trip for the first
time in forever and one of them is Wulfers getting uninvited
less than 72 hours before his scheduled Miller Park appearance.
I look on it as an opportunity to pay homage to the late Steve
Goodman, one of the greatest (if not most celebrated)
singer-songwriters of all time, and a Madison favorite. But
first, some details of what happened with Wulfers and Miller
Park. Wulfers is a veteran rock and roll singer-songwriter, a
Chicago native well-known around the Midwest for his relentless
touring and energetic shows. In an interview Tuesday, he told me
he was asked to play the national anthem at Miller Park back in
May. “That went really well,” Wulfers said. The
Brewers subsequently invited him back for several dates in July,
he said, performing before and after the game in TGI
Friday’s outdoor beer garden that’s within the
confines of Miller Park. Those went well, too. “Upbeat,
fun, outdoor American rock and roll,” Wulfers said. But
the last date, July 31, was a Brewers/Cubs game, and during
Wulfers’ performance after the game, he played after
many requests one chorus of the Steve Goodman song, “Go,
Cubs, Go,” which is often played at Wrigley Field after
Cub victories. Wulfers said that when he was contacted late last
week by the Brewers, and his scheduled Sunday appearance was
canceled, he was told the team feared he might again play
“Go, Cubs, Go.” When I called the Brewers on
Tuesday, a spokesman steered me to TGI Friday’s. My call
there was not returned, but on Monday the Chicago Tribune quoted
a Friday’s spokesperson saying this: “It was not
taken kindly by the Brewers fans. Friday’s and the
Brewers made the decision not to have the band back this
year.” What I think Wulfers should have done is made a
counteroffer: “What if I come to Miller Park and play
another Steve Goodman baseball song?” It would have been
great to hear Wulfers or anyone, anywhere, for that matter sing
“A Dying Cub Fan’s Last Request.”
It’s a truly great song, and not even really anti-Cub,
although I suppose some Cub fans might disagree. In an interview
Tuesday, Clay Eals, author of the definitive Goodman biography,
“Steve Goodman: Facing the Music,” told me the
song came to Goodman “in a dream.” A Chicago
native, born in 1948, Goodman spent one year at the University
of Illinois before leaving to pursue his musical career. He
toured and wrote constantly (the American standard “City
of New Orleans” is Goodman’s) and produced
himself and other artists. (Malvina Reynolds’ song
“The Judge Said,” based on controversial remarks
from the bench by Dane County Judge Archie Simonson in the
1970s, was produced by Goodman.) For Goodman, baseball was a
passion almost equal to music. He had been trying to compose a
baseball song ever since he started writing, without success.
Eals quotes Goodman explaining: “I get about
three-quarters of the way through it, and then I walk somebody
and take myself out.” He finally succeeded in 1981, with
the funny, rueful, elegiac “A Dying Cub Fan’s
Last Request,” in which an old Cub fan, on his death
bed, looks back at the long years of futility at Wrigley Field
and asks that he be cremated at home plate and his ashes swept
over the left field wall onto Waveland Avenue. The chorus is
classic: “Do they still play the blues in Chicago/When
baseball season rolls around/When the snow blows away/Do the
Cubbies still play/In their ivy-covered burial ground/When I was
a boy/They were my pride and joy/But now they only bring
fatigue/To the home of the brave/The land of the free/And the
doormat of the National League.” While the song is about
the Cubs’ losing ways, and is genuinely funny, it is
also affectionate, speaking to loyalty, perseverance and
continuing to try in the face of long odds. When Goodman debuted
the song in Chicago on Roy Leonard’s WGN radio show in
1981, listener reaction was frenzied. A woman said:
“I’m one of the nuts that believes.”
There was a poignant back story to the song. While Goodman
insisted it was not autobiographical, he was, in fact, sick with
leukemia when he wrote it. Steve Goodman died in September 1984.
He was 36. His friends and family scattered his ashes in Wrigley
Field. Doug Moe 608-252-6446 dmoe@madison.com
