Hang Dynasty - The History
The Hang Dynasty was originally conceived by former Pink Floyd member Scotty Page and former Supertramp guitarist Carl Verheyen. The concept was to gather together the baddest and hottest musician sidemen from the most famous bands of all time and put a group together that could stretch out and do their musical "thang" apart from their regular gigs and all "hang" out together. Carl was then replaced by Chicago native Cal David on guitar and vocals. When Cal went off to do a duo act with his wife Lori, enter Kenny Lee Lewis from The Steve Miller Band coming to your town this summer! He along with famous organist/vocalist Mike Finnegan take on the duties of lead singers for the Hang and are excellent vocalists in their own right.
Not interested in rehearsing intricate arrangements and doing current Top 40 hits, The Hang concentrates on delivering music that they all know from the past that forged the very essence of the roots of Rock and Roll and R&B. Since everyone in the band is experienced enough to know these songs already, hardly ever is a rehearsal needed and the spontaneity and energy that occurs when the Hang hits the stage is devastating.
Harkening back to the sounds of Al Green, James Brown, Albert King, Marvin Gaye, Neville Bros. and Sly and the Family Stone, Hang Dynasty also delivers the hits of the mega-groups that the band members all play with. Songs from Steely Dan, Steve Miller, Jimi Hendrix, The Doobie Bros., Steve Stills, and Pink Floyd fill the playlist, as well as the hits of Hang Dynasty guest artists. Edgar Winter, Brenda Russell, Mick Hucknall, Jim Messina, Michael McDonald, Kenny Loggins, Marc Cohen, The Turtles, Jon Anderson from Yes, Charles Fleischer, Supremes Tribute, Janis Joplin Tribute and many other top performers have all been guests with The Hang Dynasty over the years.
If you want your event to have a killer band to get you up and dancing, and deliver a performance worthy of the bands all these famous musicians have played with, Hang Dynasty will deliver all this at a price that will fit your budget. And because top-name guest artists usually use the members of The Hang on their records and tours, we can book those artists for you as well for less than the going rate because they don't need to bring their band with them. It's all a part of the package when you have us do your event.
So if you want some world class talent for your event and you want to experience the actual players that stoke the star-maker machinery, contact The Hang Dynasty and put a bit of star-shine in your event today!
