"Shanda & the Howlers are the real deal!" - Lord Rutledge // "Gals' got a hell of a set of pipes." - Jittery Jack // Shanda & The Howlers is a Rhythm & Blues revivalist band from Las Vegas, NV playing 50s-60s influenced R&B, Blues, Garage & Soul reminiscent of the Stax & Sun Studios Sounds.

Influences in their sound can be traced to such artists as Big Maybelle, Ruth Brown, Otis Redding, The Crystals, LaVern Baker, and James Brown.

In the bands' short history, they have performed 4 years in a row at the celebrated Viva Las Vegas Festival (unheard of for any artist to be asked 4 years in a row), performed many festivals in Europe and US, played on bills with such legendary acts as The Blasters, Wanda Jackson and Rev.

Horton Heat. Their third full length album "It Ain't Easy" delivers 12 soul seared, stated out garage stompers that speak directly of breakups, heartaches and moving on after surviving both.

Lead singer Shanda Cisneros' raw vocals seem to claw their way through your speakers as the band locks tight behind her with gritty saxophone riffs, a Motown inspired heart beating thump of the rhythm section and the occasional slide guitar.

Shine up them shoes, polish your blade, grease back the hair and get ready to rumble.
