BIO OF HANK HAZELWOOD

Hank Hazelwood – Vocals – Guitar

Native Californian, married to the love of my life with two wonderful adult sons.
My father, Eddie Hazelwood, was a singer/songwriter during the late 40’s & 50’s.  When I was 12, Dad took me back stage at The Grand Ole Opry, and introduced me to some of the biggest stars of country music.  That night proved pivotable on my future and my love of country music.

After high school, I joined the army.  Three years later, a civilian again, I took a job at a crane building shop.  There, I met George Hunter and his brother Mike.  George sang and played an amazing lead guitar.  Mike played a fantastic soulful, blues harmonica.   We’ve since spent endless hours jamming away, and perfecting our sound and along the way, formed a lifelong friendship.  George Hunter is the amazing other half of Double H Duo.

BIO OF GEORGE HUNTER

George Hunter – Vocals – Guitar – Sound guy.

Self taught starting with acoustic guitar and harmonica in the late 60’s. Bought my first no name electric in the 70s and fell in love with the blues. (Still have that guitar.) I enjoy playing all genres of music. To me, playing music is something you feel not just hear. When the energy going out to a crowd is returned with joy and movement I thank J.C. for the gift to be part of it.

BIO OF MICHAEL HUNTER

Michael Hunter  – Harmonica – Backup Vocals

No musical training whatsoever, self-taught on harmonica and saxophone. Can’t read music so I play by ear. You never know what you will hear, but as long as it moves you, I’m satisfied. Hopefully it puts a smile on your face. Came of age in the 60’s and have always loved blues infused genres and have played harmonica ever since. Double H is the first band I have played in and I do it for the same reason I have always played; fun and the love of music.
