We are actively booking clubs, parties, and corporate events. Let us know if we can go to work for you.

New CD in Twenty Three

The HHB has written and performed a fair number of our own songs over the past few years and felt it was time to make them “permanent.” We spent the better part of last Winter rehearsing these songs, then went into the studio to record them. We finally wrapped up post-production in July. The result is a CD called Hardly Workin’. Once the attorneys and execs over at our label, FAT CHANCE RECORDS are satisfied, we will publish the songs to Apple Music and Spotify. Packaged CDs should be available by Spring with a release party to follow shortly thereafter. In the meantime, you can check out the new recordings right here on our Press Kit page.
