Bluesdays: Terry Hanck
August 21, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Bluesdays welcomes back Terry Hanck to The Village at Squaw Valley.
A saxophone superstar with a bent for vintage rock and roll, Terry Hanck is a beloved Bluesdays headliner. He lives in Florida, but spends most of summers in California, where he built a fan base from 1977-87 when he was in Elvin Bishop’s band during its heyday of hit songs.
Hanck won the Blues Music Award for Instrumentalist, Horn, in 2017, 2016 and 2012.
Hanck’s blues-based sound is flavored with early rock and roll — when the saxophone, and not guitar, was the featured instrument. A Chicago native, Hanck was inspired by the blues at a 1962 B.B. King concert.
Hanck’s West Coast band is top shelf. Johnny Soubrand plays a Fender Telecaster guitar, Butch Cousins plays drums and the bassist is Tim Wagar.
