Howdy!s version of gothic-backwoods-mountain music continues to gain attention from the Bay Area music community with each show out-shining the last. While self described as Americana Rock, Howdy!s music is actually a little more difficult to categorize the music can run the gamut from traditional bluegrass inspired to Grateful Dead inspired jams soaked in moonshine with a little rooster claw thrown in to keep it real. Saying you can dance to it (most do) is an understatement. All this and wailing voodoo vocals and harmonica. In Howdy! songs lycanthropic lovers are decried; victims of civil war fratricide exact revenge and mythical figures weave battles for your dreams.
The band is Dave Nanstad singing and playing acoustic guitar and harmonica, Sean Hancock playing mandolin and singing, Brian Vandemark playing upright bass and some singing and, lately, phenomenal keyboard player Ben Jacobs has been performing with Howdy! as well as Johnny Christian on drums. In addition to these fine musicians, one will usually see a notable Bay Area musician or two pop up to sit in at any one of their shows. Howdy!’s popularity continues to grow as does their musicianship and the maturity of their songwriting. For more information, check out their official website: www.outlawfolk.com
