In the arena of music George Howard is considered in the heavyweight division. When he takes the stage, the audience quickly senses that this band is something special. And when they hit the first chords of their opening number, it becomes apparent that these guys are master musicians. The words most frequently used to describe this band are high energy, versatile, and unique. “High energy” because their love for their music emerges with each performance. “Versatile” because they interpret an unusually wide range of music styles and dance rhythms. And “unique” because whether they are performing an old classics or an original, these individuals have a style that is very much their own. The George Howard band plays all types of contemporary music with close blues and R&B origins: Muddy Waters Chicago electric blues, Texas swing blues, and the compelling sounds of Motown and pop. George Howard is the band’s founding member. As the band’s lead vocalist, George brings forth the band’s soul, spirit and humor. And when drumming, his chops propel the wide variety of infectious dance rhythms behind the expert musicians who are the George Howard Band.

The George Howard sound varies from pop and traditional to contemporary Rhythm and Blues, makes it impossible for listeners to sit quietly. Rather, the audience always finds themselves unable to stop shimmying, shaking or twisting either in their seats or on the dance floor.
