Shanda & The Howlers-Trouble CD. Shanda & The Howlers is a Rhythm & Blues revivalist band from Las Vegas, NV playing 50s-60s influenced R&B, Blues, & Soul reminiscent of the Stax sound. Influences can be traced back to such artists as Big Maybelle, Ruth Brown, Otis Redding, The Crystals, LaVern Baker and James Brown. In the bands short history, they’ve played on bills with such legendary acts as The Blasters, Wanda Jackson and Rev. Horton Heat. "Trouble" is their debut album and delivers 11 soul seared songs that speak directly of breakups, heartaches and moving on after surviving both. Lead singer Shanda Cisneros' raw vocals seem to claw their way through your speakers as the band locks tight behind her with gritty saxophone riffs, a Motown inspired rhythm section and that firey slide guitar balancing it all out.
