The Hank Band recently played at the Lagunitas Beer Sanctuary. The weather was sultry and the band was hot too. The Hank Band featuring Tahmus Rounds, Chris Rovetti, Dave Zibel, Jim Peterson and the West End’s own Tim Sarter. They also just wrapped up their final show of Hank Williams: Lost Highway and also played. You really missed out if you didn’t get a chance to see them and since Tahmus lives in L.A., it’s a rare treat for them to get together.
