Act Profile

Captain Howdy

Captain Howdy are an excellent, fresh, 3-piece ROCK/POP covers act that come fully equipped and are always ready to provide an interactive, friendly and professional level of performance to suit any establishment.

Fantastically charismatic with great vocals Captain Howdy are reliable, professional and pride themselves on putting on a full-on stage show! They are based in London but regularly travel throughout the country.

Captain Howdy have toured extensively throughout the UK, Europe and Worldwide and have developed a terrific live show. Their live set can feature lots of rock classics but are also adaptable and able to play sets suitable for any type of audience.

Captain Howdy 'unplugged' is the acoustic alternative to the electric band. More suited to low volume and more intimate venues, this line up features acoustic guitars rather than electric. The aim of 'unplugged' is to provide as versatile a band as possible that is enjoyable for a wide age range and can be made mellow enough for background music and exciting enough to be the centre of a party.

The band have developed a great reputation and are in demand providing live music with an edge, and as a 3-piece they are affordable making them the perfect choice for a wedding or function.

Testimonials

Completely awesome on rock the boat cruise and people chose these guys over headliners night after night. Great friendly company before and after their sets as well as great music for all tastes.

-David


Saw this band recently on a "Rock the Boat"cruise, they made all the so called big name acts look tame..Very tame. Thank goodness for You Tube, i can relive this bloody fabulous band again and again.Thanks for the memories.

Hi Mags,
Just wanted to say a big thank you for Saturday. You guys put on a hell of a show for us and it was enjoyed by all, especially Rage Against the machine at the end. Also it was good to meet you all, what a great bunch of guys!!
Cheers

Hey Mags,
Just a quick note to say thanks for playing at our wedding at Fulham Palace last month!
You guys were fabulous and such great sports for jamming with us and generally getting involved in the carnage!
I hope you enjoyed yourselves - please thank the other dudes as well.

Cheers

Hi Mags,
Just another final thank you. Had lots of emails in to thank me for you guys and saying you were great so thanks for making me look good.

Hope the marathon double session goes great tomorrow and I�ll be bringing myself and new fans to see you again soon.

Guys,
Just a quick note to thank you all (and John) for a spectacular night -

I think the most important one - and definitely the hardest part to get right is the music. It's so difficult to even know what makes one night such a blast and another very average - but you guys totally nailed it. Saturday night was one of the best ever for me and Mandy and we have been smiling ever since saviouring the evening. You got a lot of compliments from three generations of my family (from my Dad to Rudy!) and a load of people in between.

I very much hope you get some work from some of our friends - and that way I'll get all the benefits of Scratchwood again without paying for it!

I hope you guys had fun too.
See you soon,
Philip

Hi Mags,
Hopefully you remember - you guys played at our wedding at Addington Palace on the 19th May!

Sorry, it has been quite a while in sending you this but Rachel (my wife!) and I wanted to thank you for making what was an amazing wedding. I don't think I've ever heard so many positive comments about a band before - you really were awesome.

If you can thank the other band members for us, and a big thank you as well for you not only for arranging it, build up etc but also for taking the time to perform our first dance - don't want to miss a thing. There must be a very proud Steve Tyler kicking back with a Sambuca somewhere!

Thanks again - really was amazing. I've included some photos that we gathered of you from that evening - didn't know if you'd like them for your own website, etc..?

I'm sure if we need a band in the future we'll be in touch.

Cheers

Hello Mags,
We have just got back from the honeymoon and I wanted to say a huge thank you to Scratchwood who were absolutely brilliant!!!! The acoustic set at the beginning was a great start to the evening and it just got better and better as the night went on. Everyone enjoyed themselves - from my young nephews that sat enthralled on the edge of the stage (groupies in training) to my seventy year old mum dancing to the Red Hot Chili Peppers! So many people came up to me and said it was the best wedding they had ever been to and commented on how good the band were - we are just trying to think of another excuse for a party now so that we can hire them again!!!

Best regards,
Lara and Nick Pearce. Xxx
