Welcome to Catfish Howl!

we are a zydeco band! Blues, Rock, Country Mardi Gras Style


The Catfish Howl Blues Band performed for several years, and released the CD Midnight Mojo in 2009. The accordion was used during the recording of Midnight Mojo and then as part of the shows. With the addition of accordion to the act, there were several requests to change the format to Zydeco. The set list was changed, full time accordion and rubboard added, and the CD 10 Bourbon Street was released in 2017.

 The Catfish Howl Zydeco Band has performed at several clubs, Gazebos, Private events, Crawfish-Boils / New Orleans-Mardi Gras celebrations. Blues is still featured along with Rock, Country, Cajun / Tex-Mex, Covers and Originals. A professional and fun band, it is Mardi Gras all year with Catfish Howl!

Professional and fun Band

"A perfect sound to dance and enjoy that atmosphere of undeniable romance, which they pour into the air. The accordion is a star: it's in every melody, every beat, and there's no lack of commitment to participate with excitement, even when the guitar presents its fingerings."
"Catfish-Howl puts us in a wonderful ball to wear out our feet and exhaust our strength, as it's impossible to sit still listening to this band. The blues magic really is irresistible!"

"There is a festive New Orleans feel to this New Hampshire band's music. The sound is a cross between what you would expect to hear on a countryside hayride and uptempo rural blues." Led by Accordionist Glen Robertson, Catfish Howl love to perform!
There is no typical show with the Catfish. You never know what you might see and hear from Catfish Howl, but we will all have a good time!
