Hank And Cupcakes Returns To JJ's Bohemia

Saturday, June 23, 2018 - by Mark A. Herndon

Hank & Cupcakes performed at JJ's Bohemia in the Chattanooga Live Music scene. Artists: Sagit Shir, Ariel Scherbacovsky (Tel Aviv, Brooklyn, ATL). Singers/songwriters and Master Creative Artists. They just lay it out on the edge. Funky, Soul, Pop, Rock, Techno, pick one.... HnC carry's their fans through the spectrum of forced energy and flow.

 These two people of World travelers creative, caring and loving in every aspects of the music and the fans.  Just to say that is a mild statement with deep meaning.  They are very expression based in both art and music as they write, arrange, the art and music, and manage their career.  After they pull in and roadie up the stage, then step on stage, it just absolutely brings you to amazement that so much talent and energy is produced and shared at every live performance.

I met the unique couple several years ago through Mike Dougher, former manager of Rhythm & Brews, now talent curator at Songbirds Guitar Museum. The past five years Chattanooga Live Music fans continue to support Hank & Cupcakes with performances at the former Rhythm & Brews, Riverfront Nights, Riverbend Festival, St Paddy's on the Parkway, Honest Pint, Songbirds (former Revelry Room) and JJ's Bohemia. 

The relationship and music has matured...more than five years of recording resulting in three CDs and 2 EP's. Hank & Cupcakes' music is available iTunes, Spotifly, Bandcamp, Google Play and Amazon.
