The Howlers are a four piece band based in Wellington, New Zealand. We cater to audiences of all shapes and sizes, and have been lucky enough to play at a vast range of functions all around the country.


The Howlers played at our wedding in January. I was a little concerned as I hadn't heard them live but they came with an excellent recommendation. Having a live band was important to us because we love live music and we thought a band would give the day that extra 'special' something that our guests would enjoy and remember. We were so pleased with The Howlers. They were very easy to deal with from the get-go. Although I live overseas and all communication was by email I never felt that they were 'out of touch' and was completely confident that they would be reliable and on time - which they were. I liked their enthusiasm and helpfulness when deciding on the setlist. They were more than happy to learn our 'first dance' song and invited our input with other tunes for the evening.I was excited to hear really positive comments from many of our guests on the night. There were people dancing to the very end. Overall I couldn't have been happier with them!

The Howlers are a four piece covers band. Our great sound consists of 3 vocalists, 2 guitars (acoustic/electric and electric), harmonica, bass and drums.

We have a dynamic range from acoustic, easy listening through to upbeat dance and rock songs.

In addition, we gig with a full lighting and P.A. set up - one less thing for you to worry about organising! We also have a dedicated sound and light engineer working with us to make sure everything runs smoothly.

We have a huge number of gigs under out belt, regularly playing at bars around the Wellington region. We've also had the honour of playing for many weddings and corporate functions all around New Zealand.

Don't hesitate to get in touch!
