Reputah the Beautah better start growing her hair because the J. Geils Band is reuniting for the opening night party at the new House of Blues on Lansdowne St. The line-up will include, of course, guitarist J. Geils, frontman Peter Wolf, keyboardist Seth Justman, harp player Magic Dick, and bassist Danny Klein. (Whither fish-head wielding drummer Stephen Jo Bladd? He sat out the 1999 reunion too, replaced by Rollins Band stickman Sim Cain. No word on who will man the kit this time as of yet.)
