Music in our Genes?
Well if this Edmonton based Family Band is any indication, then the answer is a loud and clear YES. Headed up by international recording artist, Bill Hanson (Kidd Country) he has passed a certain something along to his 3 children Billie, Brett and Camryn and niece Shelby who join him on stage to entertain all ages with their own style of music as The Hanson Jeans.
While on their own, each member of The Hanson Jeans has their own strengths, interests and that special “it” they bring to the band. Collectively they provide audiences with a fresh new approach to Old County, New Country, Top 40, Old Rock, New Rock and even a little bit of Heavy Metal.
What started out a “Dad” jamming with his kids in the basement, has turned into a music wonderment that has led this family to stages at the Taste of Edmonton, The Edmonton Grand Prix, City of Edmonton New Years Eve in Churchill Square, Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation Fundraiser and a number of Corporate Events all over Alberta. As well as opening spots for Lisa Brokop, Tracy Millar and Gord Bamford.
With the music bug in their hearts and the music gene in their souls, The Hanson Jeans are here to stay.
