howard & the white boys*Can’t say that we’re a fan of this band’s kind of music, but we can’t help loving’ their name: Howard and the White Boys! 🙂 Hence, we just have to show bro’ man Howard and his ” white boys” some love.

This past weekend H&TWB recorded their long-awaited new album (and follow-up to the critically-acclaimed “Made In Chicago”) at Rosas’ Lounge in  Chicago, scheduled for a late-Summer release date. Read more about it here.

The veteran blues quartet continue to perform through out the U.S., bringing audiences to their feet and out onto the dance floor – much as they have done for over twenty years. Longtime band member Rocco Calipari has also branched out with his successful side project Head Honchos’, who have released a well-received debut CD and play regularly throughout the Midwest as well as the rest of the U.S. and Canada.

The members of Howard and the White Boys first met at Northern Illinois University in Dekalb in 1988 and began jamming together just for fun, but their fast-growing popularity soon convinced them they could make a career of it. After only a few months, they got their first big break by opening for Blues legend, B.B. King. The band soon made the move to Chicago and began performing with the biggest names in Blues: Koko Taylor, Albert King, Junior Wells, Lonnie Brooks, Luther Allison, Bo Diddley, and Chuck Berry (the latter whom they were the backing band for in a headlining capacity at the 2002 Long Beach Blues Festival in Long Beach, CA).
