Walter Hand + the Blue Hand Band @ Downtown Joe's Brewery |
Walter Hand and the Blue Hand Band is back for another night of jamming out with their very own blend of unique blues music!
Walter Hand began his love for music at the age of ten when he won the elementary school talent show impersonating Jerry Lee Lewis with Great Balls of Fire. He bought his first Hohner harmonica at thirteen, and around the same time played saxophone with the school band. In school Walter learned the technical fundamentals of music theory, but at home with his harmonica is where he learned to express himself and really feel the music. In 1970, after two years in the army, Walter joined the choir at Contra Costa College, while taking voice training and singing with a barbershop quartet. Still playing his sax, Walter hooked up with good friend John Doukas, lead singer for the rock group Earthquake.
