Howlin' Dan and the Riondelics is a group of hard working guys based out of Riondel B.C. (near Nelson) in the beautiful Kootenay mountains. The most heartful and talented musicians in the area have teamed up to play the catchy, inspiring, powerful original blues and funk songs of Howlin' Dan.

Besides Dan (vocals, bass, and rhythm guitar) the group's core is "Wailing" Ted Wallace on harmonica (you'll be mezmerized by his soul!) who is also a visionary painter, and "Bongo" Ben Johnson on the drums playing tastei and irresistable grooves (he's also our resident computer geek, and a player of Greek and Aribic music on a miriad of instruments).

As well we feature two master guitar players: Josh Trowbridge, music teacher and co-writer of many of the songs you'll hear, and John "Woody" Woroschuk, a St Albert, Alberta guitar man (who is also celebrating the release of his second solo CD Slight O' Hand) whose lead guitar playing is the foundation of the new CD!
Howlin' Dan & The Riondelics bring you lively, original music from the East shore of Kootenay Lake. This is the band that will get you off your seat and keep you groovin' on the dance floor with their dynamic mix of funky, bluesy, original R'n'B numbers and powerful folk ballads. 'Howlin' Dan Silakiewicz fronts the ensemble with a larger-than-life presence and a voice which reveals both sensitivity and raw power, together with evocative, often light-hearted songwriting that's sure to entertain.
