Shanda & the Howlers are a rhythm & blues revivalist band out of Las Vegas, NV. The group of five musicians solidified their line up in early 2015 and began writing songs immediately before performing their first show in the spring of 2015. Influences in their sound can be traced to such artists as Big Maybelle, Ruth Brown, Otis Redding, The Crystals, The Marvelettes, Gino Parks, LaVern Baker, and James Brown.

In the band's short history, they have played on bills with such legendary acts as Reverend Horton Heat, The Blasters, and Wanda Jackson. They have performed at numerous festivals throughout the Southwest, including the massive Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend in Las Vegas, NV. Their debut album, Trouble, came out May 20th, 2017, and their second full-length, Hurt for Me, was released on WILD Records in May 2018.
