Howlin’ Ric & The Rocketeers

“UK rock ‘n’ roll kings”Jumpin’ Hot Club

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.

Their two albums, Waiting By The Dance Floor (2019) and Cautionary Tales (2022) are both products 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, JD McPherson and the amazing bands that have been coming out of Hi-Style Records but not before refracting the sound through his record collections, drawing on classic Rock ‘n’ Roll and Rhythm & Blues.

Over recent years, they have set their stall out as a hard-touring outfit, headlining shows across the UK as well as performing at a multitude of festivals including Rhythm Riot, Atomic, Underneath The Stars, SummerTyne Americana, Great British Rhythm and Blues and made lauded debuts across Europe in Belgium, Holland, Germany, Austria and Italy.

Howlin’ Ric & the Rocketeers deliver an exciting take on a great American tradition. Presenting original Rock & Roll and Rhythm & Blues with a classic and fresh sound and are back in the studio recording their next album, for release in 2025.  A full UK tour will accompany this release.

“Howlin’Ric flips effortlessly between powerful rasps, soulful wails and shattering high notes and the band are tight as hell … wild rockers, dance floor fillers and dark blues … jaw-droopingly good”Vintage Rock
