The Howling Diablos rockin, funky, blues jam style is well known in
Detroit, and everywhere they have toured, as a great live music experience.
Since their formation in the 90’s they have toured with and opened for acts
including George Clinton’s Parliament Funkadelic, Alice Cooper, Albert Collins,
Ben Harper, Hank Williams Jr, NRBQ, Incubus and The James Gang as well as
headlining their own shows.
Recordings include “Beatnik Mambo”(Teenage), “Live”(Top Dog) and
Green Bottle”(Overture). The Bass Brothers, now teamed with Eminem,
produced the title track, “Green Bottle”, a local hit.
“Good Rockin Tonight”(Sire), an Ahmet Ertegun produced tribute to Sun
Records, features the Diablos cut “Wine Spo Dee O Dee” with a guest
appearance from Kid Rock. This record also spawned a film for the PBS series,
“American Masters”, featuring a performance by the band.
The Diablos appeared on Fat Possum releases by Nathaniel Mayer and
RL Burnside that were produced by Tino Gross. Their latest release is the
critically acclaimed Car Wash(Alive).
