Not so long ago, back in 1936, in a world much different from today a man sat in room 414 of the gunter hotel with guitar in hand. The events that unfolded would undoubtedly save the world from boredom. A rescue from hopelessness, guitar groups emerged. Soul, funk, and playing and your mom's basement was cool.
Black Hand is best described as a grove through the celestial gutter of America. Consisting of four elements it's a sound that leaves you thinking, you know that wasn't even that bad. So grab your boots and coffee and get down to some funky stereo tunes produced in black and white. Leave your ego at the door door we'll have none of that here. Come right in, have a seat, and get down.
Ego Mechanics is a 2 piece rock band from Chicago, Illinois. The kind of band you can take home to mom, but also take out on the town. They use a potent combination of raw power, musical virtuosity, and fuzzed out madness to deliver a sound and show you won't soon forget.
Hi/Jack is: Ron (drums) and Max (vocals and guitar) The story of Hi/Jack begins with a fateful meeting at a Milwaukee area music venue in early 2014, during a period of time when Max had a stockpile of material he had written since the disbandment of his previous group. The two came together to play a show and rapidly found they had musical chemistry and common influences. These influences include Led Zeppelin, AC/DC and similar classic hard rock legends.
