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.

Energetic 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.

Highly Popular

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!

Private Functions

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!

Bookings and Pricing

Due to the popularity of this band, it is recommended that you book well in advance to avoid disappointment! The prices in the quote form are correct but please note that there is a surcharge for weddings between May and September (see optional extras). Also, discounts may be offered for special public events and festivals.

No Noise Limiters!

Please note that The Houndogs cannot play through noise limiting equipment, as it just isn't practical to play music like this properly and passionately with such limitations. So, please make sure you choose a venue without a noise limiter installed!
