The members of Howard & 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 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. Tight blues chops—coupled with a natural versatility at handling the funk, R & B, and rock styles have become Howard & the White Boys trademarks. With a signature sound that is exciting, youthful exuberant, Howard & the White Boys are top contenders among the next generation of blues artists.
