Join us as we welcome sax man Terry Hanck
to the Rockfish. Show starts at 8:00 PM and the cover is $8 at the door.
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.
Hanck hits a hitgh water mark with his new album, "Night Train". Backed by a stellar team that includes Robert Cray B-3 player Jim Pugh and Charlie Musselwhite guitarist “Kid” Andersen, as well as Sid Morris (piano) and Butch Cousins (drums), with occasional bass from Michael Brooks, Hanck lays down a sizzling collection of R&B and blues tunes marked by vocals and sax playing that are well-phrased, tuneful, and soulful.
