The band are a threesome from Newcastle, NSW and were originally members of The Witchdoctors.
This power trio offers high-energy blues, heavy with rhythm, edging closely towards rock boundaries, with John Baillie's deftly executed guitar always in the fore.
Their debut album Howlin', included spirited renditions of classics like Mustang Sally, Hand Jive and Hoochie Coochie Man, along with a number of original compositions. The Howlers are augmented by Rex 'Honeyboy' Hill on harmonica on a couple of tracks as well as fellow ex-Witchdoctor Simon Chapman on piano.
They performed at the 10th Thredbo Blues Festival in 2004, as well as the East Coast Roots Blues Festival at Byron Bay in 2005 and the 1998 Australian Blues Festival at Goulburn
