The Band

Classic Rock and Blues

With Kai on lead vocal, your patrons will sing right along with her. She knows how to squeeze every ounce of feeling and brotherly/sisterly love out of every song and the crowd knows it and feeds off it. The girl belts ACDC and Guns-n-Roses making the crowd sing, and dance, and shout. And then she sings that sweet love song so you can slow dance with your honey. 

  

Nikk on guitar is a phenom, whether he’s slinging his Les Paul shredding incredible leads or wowing the crowd with his slide guitar sound and sensations. He draws the crowd in with his moves, smile and energy, to get them moving out on the dance floor. Be prepared to be inspired.


Our Rhythm section has been touring their whole life and we are lucky to have them and their experience. Never a dull note with Bob on bass. The bass lines are magic, driving the song.  Steve or Carl on drums shows years of experience laying that solid foundation for the band. They both read our minds and keep us rockin’ steady.

The Musicians

NIkk Wolfe

image61

Guitar * Slide Guitar * Vocals

  

Born on the high plains of Dakota, Nikk grew up listening to the wind singing songs in telephone wires and telling stories in time with the cries of coast bound trains. He recognized those same sounds the first time he heard Robert Johnson playing slide guitar and was hooked, wanting to make that kind of music himself. Influenced by Sonny Landreth, Johnny Winter, and others, Nikk has forged his own voice from many years of playing music and paying dues in the Band Wolves at the Door.

Kai Ulrica

Guitar * Lead Vocals * Harmonica

  

Inspired by her grandma Jerrie singing on the radio and touring with great-grandpa Jack's big band, she took that guitar her parents bought her and found her own music. She started leading music in church, playing acoustic gigs and then joined rock-n-roll bands. Kai Ulrica is the voice of the Wolves, whispering soft melodies and screamin' the blues from her soul. Y'know, just like grandma said. "Stand tall and sing loud". 

Bob Whelihan

Bass * Vocals

  

Bob Whelihan bassist. Began playing in 1969. Started in a garage then graduated to teen dances, beer bars and ballrooms. Performed with many  Chippewa Valley groups: Carnaby Street, Kicks, Debbie Wild & the Sandmen, First Impression, Mickey Larson, Dixie Duffey. Then to Milwaukee & Chicago touring/recording with Rockabilly Hall of Famer member Jules Blattner & the Warren Groovy All Star Band. Toured US and Canada. Then back in Eau Claire: Bigg Grin, Dubiel and the Deafmen, Revolver and Nick Foytik Band. The Wolves are honored to have him on board.

Carl Wergyn

Drums

  

Which came first? Drums? Walking? Regardless, he formed his own band at age 9, continued music inundation throughout school, and went on to tour Canada & the US with different groups, as well as play percussion in pit orchestras for musicals. The most recent decades saw him in the studio with original bands (mostly with Alchemy VII), releasing several CDs as a drummer and three of his own as a symphonic New Age composer. A brief tour of southern England and Vienna rounded out the decade and brought him to The Wolves. His lifelong fascination with rhythm, timing, and percussion add up to a style that rocks when needed, and old-school-jazz-tasteful when least expected.

The ever welcome Guitar/Friend

  

A transplant from the music scene of Seattle, his musical narrative starts with a talented mother who filled their house with music and it's joys; a grandfather who fed his family by teaching music. Life progresses with a constant rediscovery of music, its importance in the constant kindling of the spark of life. He brings that feeling to you on stage while beltin’ a vocal or rippin’ out a lead.  He has been a constant, steady spark in The Wolves since 2007.  He's rockin' steady with Perfect Krime over in the Twin Cities!

Jeff Hilgert

Drums

  

Jeff was a music lover as a pre-teen, and at that time was influenced by Elvis Presley, the Everly Brothers, Sandy Nelson, Rick Nelson and Scott Nelson. He is fond of all Nelsons worldwide.He studied music throughout junior high, senior high, college and the local drum and bugle corp. He owned his first drum kit at the tender age of 12.He’s performed with various bands from the Chippewa Valley, Minneapolis, Chicago, Milwaukee, Madison, Chicago, Nashville, San Francisco, Chicago, Los Angeles, Oakland, Berkeley, Chicago and Mi Wuk Village. Now he’s right back where he started and is happy as (he) can be.Current influences too numerous to mention. Jeff’s musical horizons expand nightly.
