Houndogs (The) from £1125Add to Your Favourites
The Houndogs are quite simply one of the best Rock and Roll bands in the UK. The band was formed by the three Wilson brothers nearly 15 years ago, and since then they have built up a wide reputation for their exhilarating live performances.
The wild energy of their shows has to be seen to be believed and includes members of the band jumping off the drum kit, standing on the double bass and even setting fire to the cymbals! The guys always give 110% to their performances and have the crowd begging for more.
The band have gained a huge following from their performances at festivals, clubs, theatres and private events all over the UK and abroad. The guys have also been featured on TV numerous times including Sky1 when they appeared on 'Must Be The Music' with great comments from Dizzee Rascall and Jamie Cullum. Check the video tab above!
The Houndogs are a popular choice for wedding receptions, birthday parties and corporate events, offering a refreshing change to the more standard function bands. If you want an exciting and memorable event, book The Houndogs!

Also, discounts may be offered for special public events and festivals.

Loved The Houndogs! You have to book these again as their entertainment value was first class but everything about this group was brilliant.
Stephen and Caroline - Oundle Festival - 21 Jul 2017
Saturday did indeed go very well, thank you. The Houndogs are extremely nice people and amazing performers. How they manage to sustain such a high energy performance is extraordinary, including great tricks - dancing on the bass, playing it upside down, cymbals on fire etc! They really got the crowd going. It was a pleasure to welcome them to Oundle Festival.
Kenneth Richardson - Oundle Festival - 19 Jul 2017
Just want you to know how much we enjoyed your gig at the Oundle Party at the Wharf Saturday last. Fantastic! As someone who's about to visit Graceland (Memphis) I particularly enjoyed the Elvis numbers... Thanks again it's a joy to listen to and watch you - really entertaining.
Anne Kilgour - Oundle Music Festival - 19 Jul 2017

I am a big Houndogs fan, and now many of my colleagues are as well so I hope that we will see you again in the future!

Best ever group I have ever seen at Sywell , you should have played in hanger 1 at the night time which would have made our weekend. Keep up the good work, you are all great artist .
Derek Everitt - Sywell Classic Car Show - 26 Sep 2016
Just wondered if you could pass on our thanks to the Houndogs for their incredible set at our wedding on 3rd September. All of the guests, young and old, were really blown away by how good they were - even a few weeks later people keep talking about them.
They are fantastic at what they do - the performance was so tight and the energy and showmanship were incredible. They were also very professional, friendly and a pleasure to deal with on the night. Overall a real highlight of our wedding. Thank you so much!

People haven’t stopped talking about The Houndogs… you should definitely use them again, I will be if I can ever find another suitable event. Their energy when they are on stage is insane… they nearly spent as much time on the dance floor playing their instruments there as they did up on stage.

Thank you again and kind regards.
Claire Radley - NFU Mutual - 3 Mar 2015
Absolutely fantastic!! Everybody loved them. Had so many comments on them on the night and yesterday. Loads of people asking where I found them and a couple of people wanting to book them for events they organise including one in Belgium.
Had people saying they didn't know whether to get up and dance or just sit and watch as they didn't want to miss anything. One guy in particular who usually hates bands absolutely loved them. Head was going, toe was tapping! He said he would pay to go and see them.
They were the icing on the cake for a fantastic day.

I just wanted to drop you all a line to say a huge THANK YOU for playing at our wedding at Blake Hall in Ongar, Essex, on July 26th. It is fair to say that you ‘made’ the wedding – we have had hundreds of compliments (on your behalf!) and lots of queries that I hope might result in some extra bookings for you guys. We were really looking for something different – and it wouldn’t have been as perfect as it was without you.

Tina Russell - CIPD - 8 Jul 2009
Dear Robert, Ian and David, I am writing to thank you for the wonderful performance you gave at my daughter’s wedding on 6th June at The Bell Inn Stilton. We had a fantastic day and the entertainment you provided really was 'the icing on the cake'. You clearly are born entertainers and won the whole crowd over from the first song. Four weeks later I still have people commenting on your performance. I understand you have already picked up at least one booking from the audience that night, and we will certainly not hesitate recommending you to everyone we know. In fact we are already looking for an excuse to have another party just so we can enjoy another evening being entertained by you. Once again many thanks and good luck for the future.
Phillip & Elaine Sibley - 6 Jul 2009
Please pass on my very sincere thanks to the Wilson brothers who played at our party at the Danish Invader on 8 May. The group, as ever, were professional, and capitavated our guests with the most entertaining evening. Their talent is unique as everyone from 8 to 80 really enjoyed the spectacle they created. A year ago, when I first saw the Hound Dogs, I was totally amazed by them and they certainly did not disappoint me this time. Thank you all so very much, you provided the best birthday present possible.
Sue Steele - 26 May 2009
I just wanted to say what a great show you guys did last night. I attended the evening do at the PPC show along with the editorial members of the mag and saw you sound check and perform. You were brilliant and I really enjoyed watching you. I get to see lots of local bands but I haven't seen one as musically and visually good as you for a very long time. Hopefully I'll catch you again soon. I live in Peterborough and you've got quite a few gigs lined up around the area over the next few months. Well done and thanks again for a great night.
Tracy - 25 May 2009
Hi David, I just wanted to pass on our thanks to the Houndogs for providing such an entertaining evening for us on Saturday. They played for us at our fundraising event last year and many people returned to see them again this year and those that saw them for the first time on Saturday were impressed. My husband, Gary would like to say a big thanks as he joined in on the drums for “Stray Cat Strut” and he’s still going on about it now. Please could you pass on a massive thank you from Brigstock School PFA and I’m sure we’ll be in touch for another booking in the future.
