WEB LISTING: http://thealtamont.com/Hanks
The name Hank has become synonymous with country music, thanks to the great Hank Williams, Sr. who wrote and performed so many songs that are now standards of the American songbook. In addition to Hank Senior's son and grandson, the history of country music is brimming with a number of accomplished Hanks, and they've all inspired our latest tribute presentation: Hanks A Lot. Join some of WNC's most caring keepers of the country flame as we pay homage not only to the legendary Hank Williams and his kin, but to the other great Hanks as well: Thompson, Snow, Cochran, Penny, Locklin, Garland, and more.
Our band includes guitarist and singer Sammy Guns, formerly of Southbound Turnaround (voted one of the region's best country bands in a recent poll), R. Scott Murray, pedal steel guitarist for Raising Caine (Asheville's hottest honky-tonk outfit), and drummer David Cohen, whose list of credits includes David Holt, David Wilcox, the Faux Four, and Sweet Dreamers (who recently performed their Patsy Cline tribute to a sold-out Altamont Theatre audience). An amazing and comprehensive night of classic country and American music awaits... don't miss it!
