He planned a career as an artist, but landed a job in the late 1960s as a disc jockey on then-cutting edge Boston FM radio station WBCN and began exploring his interest in blues and rhythm and blues music, giving himself the nickname "the Woofer Goofer", sometimes expanded to "the Woofer Goofer with the Green Teeth". He formed a group called the Hallucinations, then saw the then J. Geils Blues Band in concert and quickly joined. He was the vocalist and frontman, and often acted as a sort of manager. He was known for his charasmatic stage antics of fast-talking quips and "pole-vaulting" with the mic stand. He and keyboard player Seth Justman were responsible for most of the song writing, but Wolf left the group in 1983. He and the group felt their creativity was stagnating and they were faced with a decision to follow the path they had been on, or the new path which had won them chart success with "Centerfold", a pop music record with very little traditional blues or rhythm and blues content.

Geils Band reunited for several appearances, with Wolf resuming his duties as lead vocalist; however, despite the eager anticipation of fans, ticket sales were extremely disappointing.
