"I write songs that you think you've heard for years," says the South Florida-based Terry Hanck, who's got suave movie-star looks and a good time presence that immutably anchors the old-style R&B he adores. Blues and soul music fans know that the soundtrack to early rock' n' roll ran on three-minute instrumentals with sax in the lead, and was directly related to 1950s and 1960s New Orleans R&B hits, along with that deep-fried wildness that came from Memphis. With this history lesson in mind, old school rock 'n' soul saxophonist and singer Terry Hanck makes perfect sense. Clearly, Hanck has worshipped at the right Southern altars-- those of such iconic R&B brothers as Fats Domino, Ray Charles, B. B. King, Lee Allen and King Curtis. 

"Johnny Cat" Soubrand has held the down the dual lead spot as guitarist (recording and touring) with Terry Hanck for twelve years. A West Coast native, he was born in San Francisco, lived in Santa Cruz logging lots of time at Moe's Alley and performed/toured with many other Bay Area blues notables including Andy Santana and the Chrome Addicts.

Butch Cousins, the man who "drives the bus"--i.e.the backbeat, the drummer-- says that what folks need to know about him simply boils down to "I enjoy the song--eveything for the sake of the song."

Tim Wagar has been an integral part of the Bay Area music scene since moving there from Michigan in 1974, backing such blues greats as Laverne Baker, Lowell Fulson, Brownie McGhee, Charles Brown, Charlie Musselwhite, and Jimmy McCracklin. In the mid-eighties, Tim recorded with and toured the U.S. and Europe with Mark Hummel & the Blues Survivors.
