Terry Hanck is well known for his hard blowing sax, incredible range and gusty vocals. Born in Chicago, Hanck was heavily influenced by the blues, soul and jazz music of the 50’s and early 60’s. After moving to California in 1965, he toured with Elvin Bishop through most of the 70’s and 80’s and Bishop gave him plenty of opportunities to hone his craft on stage. “Terry Hanck is a fine vocalist, an amazing showman, and my favorite sax player,” says Bishop. Terry Hanck left the Bishop band to tour under his own name in the late 80’s playing a signature mix of New Orleans Gumbo, West Coast Jump and East Bay Funk, all delivered with a heavy dose of blues and soul. He draws on a vast repertoire of songs, including many originals and his energetic performances spotlight an artist at the peak of his craft.
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 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.
Amy Whitesell of A Music Company Inc., promoter of the concert explains, “We were fortunate to be able to book Terry because there was an open date on his tour. Terry has added his talents to numerous artists’ recording projects over the years and music fans have been unknowingly listening to this great talent for many, many years”!
