Not to be confused with Peter Wolf (who's best known as the lead vocalist for the J. Geils Band from 1967 to 1983 and for a few reunions since then), J. Geils was born John Geils on February 20, 1946 in New York city.   Geils is the lead guitarist, singer and founder of the J. Geils Band.

The band did a short tour of the states in August of last year, including a stop at the PNC Band Arts Center along with Susan Tedeschi, Derek Trucks and others, with B.B. King headlining.

This video of the band in Danbury, CT last August in concert at the Ives Center, shows the crowd they've still got it.
