5/13/2017 Terry Hanck Band/Back Bay Betty

Terry Hanck delivers a wide array of blues through his tenor sax and impressive vocal range. The best blues music is influenced by the time and place it comes from, and on a typical night, Terry Hanck will travel from the Gulf Coast to the south side of Chicago, spanning over a half century of the blues, as he rolls 1950’s swing, 1960’s R&B, 1970’s soul, and 1980’s southern blues rock into a 2017 dance party mix.

The son of a bandleader, Terry Hanck was born in Chicago and raised on the homegrown blues, soul, and jazz of performers such as B.B. King, Ray Charles, and Junior Walker. In 1965, Hanck moved to California and started playing the saxophone to finance a surfing addiction. By the 1970s, he was touring with Elvin Bishop. “Terry Hanck is a fine vocalist, an amazing showman, and my favorite sax player,” says Bishop. In the early 1990s, Terry Hanck started touring under his own name. Hanck was nominated in 2009 for a Blues Music Award, partially based on the appeal of the release Always (Vizztone, 2008), which showcases Hanck’s songwriting ability, instrumental mastery, and general good humor on tunes such as “Deep Fried Twinkies.” His recent albums include Gotta Bring It On Home To You (Delta Groove, 2014) which is a tribute to the soul rockin’ blues of the 1950s & 60s, and From Roadhouse to Your House (Vizztone, 2016) which was recorded live at the California State Fair. Terry has received a 2012 Living Blues Award for best horn and Blues Music Awards for best instrumentalist / horn in 2012 and 2016. His band includes Johnny “Cat” Soubrand on guitar, Tim Wagar on bass, and Butch Cousins on drums. The week before our show, Terry will find out in Memphis whether he will win his third Blues Music Award for best horn.
