Howlin' Ric & The Rocketeers over for a few shows in the Netherlands with "Cautionary Tales"27-09-2022
Leeds-based Howlin’ Ric & the Rocketeers play vibrant and authentic rock and roll, roving from raucous rhythm and blues right through to dreamy popcorn love songs. Wailing vocals, virtuosic sax and biting, grooving guitar will have the audience bouncing, swinging and sweating from start to finish.
After forming as a trio in 2016 their debut releases, Cannonball and Tears Before Bedtime, were championed by BBC Introducing and UK Rock and Roll Magazine. In 2018 the band expanded the line-up, adding saxophone and drums to the already rocking guitar and bass rhythm section.
Their debut album, Waiting By The Dance Floor, was released in 2019 and is a product of band leader Richard Colley and his life long love of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Rhythm & Blues and Rockabilly. Over recent years he has immersed himself in the new great roots artists such as Nick Curran, The Bellfuries and JD McPherson.
In February Howlin’ Ric & the Rocketeers released Cautionary Tales a release on which the band is presenting original Rock & Roll and Rhythm & Blues with a classic and fresh sound. With this the band comes over to the Netherlands in February.
