The Crazy Hambones
Authentic international blues band with
Henry Heggen - Hohner harmonicist (Jacksonville, Florida USA)
Micha Maass – drums (Juterbog, Germany)
Brian Barnett gtr/voc (London UK)
Hambone is an age-old children’s game in which fiery, rhythmic thigh-slapping drives singing shoe-shine boys on to even greater vocal heights. It also describes a mentality that blues musicians should strive for even in today’s modern times.
“The Crazy Hambones pay homage to the crazy and genial blues harmonica players of the past..” (Roland Salewsky, Bluesnews magazine).
The Crazy Hambones stripped down line -up of electric blues harp, electric guitar and drums means it concentrates on the essentials, drawing inspiration from the vast legacy of legends such as Muddy Walters, Walter Horton, Little Walter and Sonny Terry. Their onstage chemistry and energy leaves you in no doubt that they want you to enjoy yourselves.

Roadhouse is a merger of experienced Blues/Rock musicians and 3 dynamic, young female vocalists.
