Frontier Days Starts Tonight, But Closing Night Sunday’s Got the Blues Band with “Howard and the White Boys”

“CHICAGO’S HARDEST-WORKING BLUES BAND,” HOWARD AND THE WHITE BOYS will be at Frontier Days on Sunday July 6, 2014 at 5:00 p.m. (official Frontier Days schedule reports 5:45 p.m. start time) The celebrated longtime blues/rock ensemble recently recorded their long-awaited new album (and follow-up to the critically-acclaimed “Made In Chicago”) at Rosas’ Lounge in Chicago, scheduled for a Summer 2014 release.

Howard and the White Boys continue to perform through out the U.S., bringing audiences to their feet and out onto the dance floor — as they have done for over twenty years. Longtime band member Rocco Calipari has also branched out with his successful side project Head Honchos’ who have released a well-received debut CD and play regularly throughout the Midwest as well as the rest of the U.S. and Canada. The members of Howard And 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 Blues legend, 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 (the latter whom they were the backing band for in a headlining capacity at the 2002 Long Beach Blues Festival in Long Beach, Calif.).

Here’s Howard and the White Boys killing it live on their song “Black Cat Bone,” recorded at Rosa’s Lounge in Chicago …
