What a fantastic show Terry Hanck and his band put on at Playhouse Boise the other night! Here’s the opening track viewed from the dance floor, in part as the camera guy (me) tries to keep up with him through the audience. A truly great entertainer and fantastic sax player and soul-blues singer! And a heck of a nice guy to boot. What a band!

Terry Hanck proves that sax and soul are still all the rage. He won the 2016 Blues Music Award for Best Horn. In 2014 he won the International Songwriting Competition in the Blues Category and in 2012 swept both the Blues Music Awards and the Living Blues Award for Best Horn. He was in the great Elvin Bishop band for ten years, and has fronted his own band for 28 years.
This will be a great show for all blues lovers, and one that you don’t want to miss!
