“An unreconstructed bad ass to the bone, Hanck is still piling on the awards ... I hope his mantle is strong enough to hold all the
awards coming his way for a long time to come. Killer stuff that knows no end of good times."
- Chris Spector, Midwest Record

"Terry's one of the few songwriters around today who can make me think, "Damn, why didn't I think of that?!?"
-Rick Estrin (Rick Estrin & The Nightcats)

"His fiery reed work, beautiful tone and effortless, inventive melodies make for thoroughly enjoyable listening....his voice is a
marvel. He can make it growl, ache, croon, moan and tease, and then some. It is a superb instrument in its own right."
- Joseph Jordan, Golden Gate Blues News (SF)

Three-time Blues Music Award winner, Terry Hanck is in the modern pantheon of tenor sax greats. His sound is at the nexus of
classic New Orleans R&B, Chicago blues and soul, West Coast honk and Memphis rock and roll. The guy has a voice that still
make women swoon. His lyrics are ranked among the best in his idiom, just ask fellow writer Rick Estrin! With I STILL GET
EXCITED (TVR/Vizztone Music Group street date: July 12), Terry brings together his stellar band and special guests for one of the best albums of his long career. Terry’s five originals stand shoulder-to-shoulder with some of his hand-picked favorites by Louis Jordan, Sam “Lightning” Hopkins, Bobby
Charles, Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson and Howling Wolf.

Co-produced with renowned player/producer savant, Chris “Kid” Andersen at Greaseland Studios in San Jose, the “silver-haired
fox” gathered some famous special friends—including harpman Rick Estrin, piano/organ man Jimmy Pugh (Robert Cray, Etta
James, Chris Isaak & founder of Little Village Foundation), guitar master Chris Cain, drummer June Core (Charlie Musselwhite)
and the legendary singer Tracy Nelson to join in with his own brilliant bandmates, Johnny ‘Cat” Soubrand (guitar), Tim Wagar
(bass) and Butch Cousins (drums). A perfect summer record for dancing, driving and being young at heart!
Terry Hanck has always proved that sax and soul are still the rage. He won the 2017 Blues Music Award for “BEST HORN” in
Memphis. He swept both the Blues Music Awards and the Living Blues Award for “Best Horn” in 2016. In May of 2014, won the
ISC Award (International Songwriting Competition) in the BLUES Category for his powerful soul ballad “I Keep On Holding On.”!

In 2014, he was nominated in the 2012 “Best Song” category as well. His live album, FROM ROADHOUSE TO YOUR HOUSE-LIVE! was released in the Summer of 2016. He and his sizzling band played the prestigious 2017 Legendary R&B Cruise, the 50th Annual Summerfest in Milwaukee and the 36th Annual American
Music Festival in Chicago. As saxophonist, singer, bandleader and songwriter, the tall, tan Chicago-born South Florida-based Hanck knows it is good to live
in a world of classic New Orleans R&B, steamy strolls, gorgeous soul ballads and West Coast jump blues. His level of expertise in these idioms make for an unbeatable workout on all his records.

With his solid sender bandmates—Johnny Soubrand (the sizzling master guitarist celebrating his 12 year anniversary with Terry),
and the tight rhythm section of long-time drummer Butch Cousins and bassist Tim Wagar--Terry has never lost his unbridled
enthusiasm and fearless youth---in his playing, singing, songwriting or his warm personality. He has travelled from his hometown
of Chicago to Southern California to the Bay Area and finally to the southeast coast of Florida; from the 1960s Berkeley-based
Grayson Street Houserockers to ten swell years with the great Elvin Bishop. He has led his own band for over 28 years, creating
classic songs that ache with yearning, explode with joy and keep the young and the young at heart on dance floors across
America and around the world.
