Omar & the Howlers at Waterloo Records
"Omar" Dykes hails from McComb, MS, a town with the distinction of being home turf for Bo Didley. Omar started playing guitar at age 7, took to hanging out at the edge-of-town juke joints at 12, joined his first band at 13-the next youngest player being 50-and started honing his music. He was still Kent Dykes in those days, but by the time he hit 20 he had hooked up with a crazy party band called the Howlers. Come see this talented group showcase their talent at Waterloo Records for a free summer show!
