Hungry Like the Wolk

Amy Wolk

Amy Wolk brought in a great supporting cast to aid her in her first solo show in half a decade. She also brought a lot of confidence, a little sass, and a winning smile. She talked the talk and strutted her stuff in a black dress and sparkling gold, red, and blue heels. Her show was well designed and, although she is no Adele, her cover of “When We Were Young” brought out the best of her own voice.

Wolk wrote some fun songs to add to her feel-good selections.

Her “I’ll Title This Tomorrow” (music and lyrics by Wolk and William TN Hall) about procrastination had a little bit of everything and its clever lines caught our imagination and laughter. A pair of my favorites were the combination of “You’re Moving Out Today” (Carole Bayer Sager/Bette Midler/Bruce Roberts) followed by “Goodbye to You” by Zack Smith.

Wolk’s talented friends helped to create a wonderful atmosphere.

Backup singers Gerard Salvador and Stefan Basti and their smooth voices turned each of Wolk’s choruses into a medley of pleasant vibrations. The band of Tim Lykins on drums and Dan Fabricatore on bass added that sense of class to the evening that seems to always follow a warming bass line. Additionally, musical director Steven Ray Watkins complemented Wolk well on the piano.

Hungry Like the Wolk and Amy telling her stories appeared to set her at ease with life’s challenges.

Amy returns October 15.
