"Hey Eric, I just wanted to send an extra thanks for your exquisite strumming at the wedding. You not only played incredibly well, but you had timing, and great crowd interaction and it just seemed like you knew exactly what we wanted and when we wanted it."

"Thank you!!!!!  You totally rocked it!  So many great compliments about you!  We really appreciate you putting everything into your performance.  Can't wait to see you play again soon."
Merry Christmas.

"I've seen this guy perform at bars and private parties, and the kind of dialogue Eric sets up with an audience is really something to watch.  He had me doing scissor kicks!"

"As owner of a venue that has live music 4-5 nights a week, we always look forward to Eric playing. It is a pleasure dealing with him when setting up a show and that carries over to his performances, he is professional in every manner. Eric's shows always entertain and we get requests for him to return as soon as he finishes. His skill as a musician and music selection are top notch. Would highly recommend Eric solo or with his band for any night of the week or any sized crowd."

"When it comes to booking live music, there is Eric Howell, and then there is everyone else.  I first met Eric at a bar I used to manage.  One night I heard an artist performing “Shout” by Otis Day and the Knights, and every time he did the extended “Heeyyy” call, every member of the bar responded in kind.  From the kitchen I thought to myself “Who the hell is this guy?”  And when I walked into the bar, all I saw was one man, a guitar, and 2 dozen background singers filling out my bar tables. Eric Howell is an artist that commands attention from crowds of any size, from 30 to 3,000.  His diverse playlist and crowd pleasing sound can keep the bar filled until after closing time.  I have seen him play to adults as well as kids with a playful demeanor that crowds drink up as happily as their libations.  Oh yeah, and he played our wedding too."
