Hank Sinatra – the name says it all
Imagine the mashup of Hank Williams and Frank Sinatra. The result is powerhouse postmodern country with a driving beat.
Hank Sinatra leads his band through the greatest hits of the 40’s and 50’s, bringing his unique style to every song. Hank’s band has the usual honky-tonk instrumentation of a twangy Telecaster, triple-neck steel guitar, drums and bass, but they take country into a whole new realm when they launch into a pop classic like “The Lady Is A Tramp”.
Hank’s new album released
Portland’s favorite alt-country crooner had a breakout year in 2015, playing to a packed house at the Alberta Street Pub. That
performance was recorded and then released in January 2016 as Hank Sinatra’s latest album, “Live in Portland.” The album features Hanks’s high-energy take on Americana classics, backed up by Portland’s best musicians for a listening experience that’s exciting and totally unique. In this video, Hank and his boys take country into a whole new realm when they launch into “The Lady Is a Tramp.” The entire album crackles with electricity, and the sound quality and performances are truly impressive.

Oregon Public Radio Highlights Hank
Though Hank’s been a fixture in local honky-tonks for the past five years, his renown reached nationwide when his contribution of “I Always Get Lucky with You” for a 2013 George Jones tribute album was singled out for praise in reviews, including host April Baer on the public broadcasting show “State of Wonder.”
Here’s the cut April was referring to when she said “the Hank Sinatra song really got to me.”
