Price Range: $200 and up
Gig Length: 10 - 40 minutes
HOWL is a New Jersey-based live looping duo voiced by Allie Reeves and Honor Friberg. Using the loop pedal, they layer vocal instrumentation, percussion and harmonies in real time to create exciting and innovative covers and mash-ups. They bring a quirky, passionate energy to a mix of songs - from contemporary pop hits, to songs from their childhood musical roots in the 90s.
Allie Reeves, HOWL's founder and soprano, brings over 10 years of a cappella experience in both the collegiate and semi-pro scene, with 7 years of musical directing, as well as Harmony Sweepstakes Audience Favorite and Best Arrangement awards among her credits.
Honor Friberg, swinging nimbly between bass and soprano 2, may be the group's relative aca-newbie, but she has serious arranging chops and the pipes to match! In addition to college a cappella, her singing experience includes musical theater and guest vocals with the cover band Ladies Room.
Additional Booking Notes
