The group will perform two free shows in the venue that night, at 8 and 10:30 p.m., and Tom Cantone, the Sun’s President of Sports & Entertainment, will formally host a ceremony before the first set.

    The Cartells will be the 15th act to go into the Wolf Den Hall of Fame, joining elite names like Eddie Money, Chubby Checker and Little Anthony and the Imperials. To date, The Cartells have performed in the Wolf Den 42 times.
