Wild Honey Presents Peter Holsapple and Rob Laufer for the Autism Think Tank
This incredible afternoon of music will feature separate, equal sets by Peter Holsapple, founder of the dB's and member  Continental  and Wild Honey Orchestra musical director Rob Laufer in the intimate Wild Honey Backyard.  Profits from the show will go to the Autism Think Tank.

Tickets are $20 general admission and $40 with food.  Doors at 3:30pm.  Music starts at 4pm and ends 7pm.

Peter Holsapple!  You would think being an integral member of one of the most beloved power pop bands, The dBs, would be enough for a guy and his resumé. But no, Peter Holsapple just had to tour with R.E.M. and Hootie & the Blowfish, join Continental Drifters, and collaborate with John Hiatt, Indigo Girls, the Troggs, the Cowsills, Juliana Hatfield Three, Better Than Ezra, and so many others. Not one to rest on laurels, Peter has continually been in motion since his first recordings in 1972 with Rittenhouse Square.

Perhaps thats why hes releasing his first solo album in 21 years  hes been a busy, busy man. And, as Peter himself says, And its really solo, too! I played and sang 99 44/100ths of the notes on this record. I wanted to be responsible for all of it, so I dove deep inside myself and the songs and came up with
Game Day.

The album is set for July 27, 2018 release on Omnivore Recordings.

Game Day contains 13 new tracks, a bonus track, and two super bonus tracks  Holsapples critically acclaimed single Dont Mention the War b/w Cinderella Style, originally released in 2017. After putting the single out on my own last year, I made the decision to put out an album. Some tunes are brand new, some have been in rotation for a bit, but all are worthy. My middle-aged Pet Sounds fantasy is real, with the issues of middle age put to memorable melodies.

The old guy at work in Tuff Day, watching my parents place get cleared out in Inventory, a decades-late thank-you note to a college girlfriend in Commonplace  theyre all a part of the present-day me.

Game Day is prime Holsapple, whose recording career spans nearly five decades. It contains all the hooks, clever lyrics, and deft instrumentation one would expect. As he paraphrases Jeff Beck in the packaging, Today, with all of the hard competition in the music business, its almost impossible to come up with anything totally original. So I havent, but I had a lot of fun making Game Day, and I hope it comes through when you hear it.
