Group Description

Let's celebrate great music! This group is set to discuss and enjoy Blues, Rock and R&B, both nationally, and right here in Austin, Texas.

We will also keep tabs on the Howard McLaughlin Band - music that stirs your soul and moves your feet.

Howard has shared the stage with many Austin musicians (Chris Layton, Ray McCarty, Joe Sublett, Ted Roddy, Bobby Mack, and others), opened for national acts (Junior Wells, Travis Tritt, Bonnie Raitt), and toured with performers like Freddie Fender and Billie Jack Collard. Howard’s sax player in the early nineties in Austin was none other than John Smith of Jerry Lacroix and the Boogie Kings fame.

His music is aired in Austin on KLBJ. (Loris Lowe loves playing Howard’s version of “Change is Gonna Come”.) C101 and KKED in Corpus Christi get regular requests for Howard’s tunes.

He played the Chicago Blues Festival for many years, headlined Bayfest in Corpus Christi and played the Texas Jazz Festival (also held in Corpus Christi).

In Austin, Howard has successfully played Joe's Generic, Babe’s, the 311 Club, The Filling Station, Poodie’s Hilltop, and many other local clubs and private parties.
