Arnett Howard Band


Listen Here: 



In Central Ohio, Arnett Howard is a legend. No matter what he plays or who he plays with, he always brings out the crowds. His energetic personality and musicianship have made him perhaps the best-known entertainer in the region.

Backed by various lineups of seasoned Columbus musicians, Arnett has performed over 4000 concerts since 1985 – for audiences big and small, people young and old, in Central Ohio and worldwide. No matter what the event needs, Arnett has the band and the repertoire to make it sizzle, turning up the heat with

  • New Orleans-Style Street Parade Music & Jazz featuring trumpets, trombones and tuba
  • Motown/Memphis/New Orleans Rhythm and Blues (with a splash of reggae!)
  • Creole, Cajun & Zydeco Dance Music
  • Classic Riverboat Songs and Sing Alongs
  • Contemporary Pop & Jazz Standards


This multi-faceted musician is also a teacher and historian (he co-authored Listen For the Jazz: Keynotes in Columbus History). Besides playing for private and public functions, Arnett offers schools, libraries and non-profits a number of educational (and highly interactive) music presentations.


There is simply no stopping Arnett Howard! So why not put this show-stopper to work for you?
