I wanted to give you a big thank you for coming from Reading and racing through your set, you were awesome and just what was needed. You guys did your set, you were great, you were the best band to have in that slot.
What excites you with Selina & the Howlin’ Dogs is the pure energy that buzzes around them and in turn whips the crowd up into happy jelly’fied Funksters… As a lover of the music you became so embraced believing they are much, much, more than the next band, they are beautifully good… Musically very tight with super sharp vocals. Book them, I would… Over & over again.
Selina and The Howlin Dogs played for us at the 2015 Choko Beer Festival in Cholsey and put on a superb set of original material and covers. In my experience it is always difficult to introduce original material to an non-partisan audience, but with the talented vocals of Selina supported by a great bunch of musicians they carried it off well and had us dancing or humming along to a very accomplished sound, with covers that were well selected and performed to complement their original material. A great band that clearly enjoy what they do, which is evident in their accomplished show, you have to watch for Tobi on the drums and backing vocals, quite a performer. From our point of view it was a delight to have them play for us and we hope to have them back again in the future.
Selina and The Howlin Dogs were a great hit with our audience. From the moment they stepped onto stage there was a high energy interaction, great tunes and calls for more at the end of the set. It will be a pleasure to have them back!
