Terry Hanck Band
9:00 pm–1:30 am
Terry Hanck proves that sax and soul are still the rage. He swept both the Blues Music Awards and the Living Blues Award for “Best Horn” in 2012, and was nominated in the 2012 “Best Song” category as well. He made the 2014 Blues Music Award nominations again and in May of this year, won the ISC Award (International Songwriting Competition) in the BLUES Category for his powerful soul ballad “I Keep On Holding On.”
As saxophonist, singer, bandleader and songwriter, the tall, tan Chicago-born South Florida-based Hanck knows it is good to live in a world of classic New Orleans R&B, steamy strolls, gorgeous soul ballads and West Coast jump blues. His level of expertise in these idioms make for an unbeatable workout on his 2014 CD on Delta Groove Music, GOTTA BRING IT ON HOME TO YOU, the follow-up to his award –winning 2011 album, LOOK OUT!
Joined by his solid sender bandmates—Johnny Soubrand (the sizzling master guitarist celebrating his 10 year anniversary with Terry), and the tight rhythm section of long-time drummer Butch Cousins and bassist Tim Wagar–Terry has never lost his unbridled enthusiasm and fearless youth—in his playing, singing, songwriting or his warm personality. He has travelled from his hometown of Chicago to Southern California to the Bay Area and finally to the southeast coast of Florida; from the 1960s Berkeley-based Grayson Street Houserockers to ten years with the great Elvin Bishop. He has led his own band for over 25 years, creating classic songs that ache with yearning, explode with joy and keep the young and the young at heart on dance floors across America and around the world.
