About the Event
Malted Shake is moving to Friday on this occasion just so we have the chance to host the brilliant Howlin' Ric & the Rocketeers for a rare London gig. 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.
After forming as a trio in 2016 their debut releases, Cannonball EP and Tears Before Bedtime EP, were championed by BBC Introducing and UK Rock and Roll Magazine. In 2018 the band expanded the line-up, adding saxophone and drums to the already rocking guitar and bass rhythm section.
Their debut album, Waiting By The Dance Floor, was released in 2019 and is a product 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.
Since the release, 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.
