Asheville Sessions: Ha Ha Tonka

Asheville Sessions: Ha Ha Tonka

From the plains of Springfield, Missouri, this indie rock band made their Asheville debut at The Grey Eagle in the River Arts District. Ha Ha Tonka is a collective of four extremely talented young men playing soulful Ozark Mountain music with a mixture of college rock. The name Ha Ha Tonka is a nod to the boys Ozark pride, as Ha Ha Tonka is a state park in southwestern Missouri. When we caught up with them to record this session before their show at The Grey Eagle, we were instantly captivated by how harmoniously these guys worked together.

Crazy Tom Banana Pants Anniversary Party


Crazy Tom Banana Pants has over the past few months became one of my favorite local bands to see live. Our videographer, Wes introduced us to Caleb Hanks and his lively band of miscreants a while back when we recorded them for Asheville Sessions. I was hooked. From their catchy guitar licks, amazingly talented horn section, and absolutely fantastic Whitney Houston cover (plus a ton of groovy originals), they have left me more than pleased.
