DAVID HANNERS is one of the few former oilfield roughnecks who also has a Pulitzer Prize. His songs are a slice of Americana and folk that feature vibrant storytelling, and he brings his characters to life in ways reminiscent of John Prine, Steve Earle and the late Bill Morrissey.

His most recent album, There Are No Secrets in This Town, "plays out like a musical version of a McMurtry novel," wrote Terry Paul Roland, a featured contributor to No Depression. His previous record, The Traveler's Burden, is “like Townes Van Zandt doing Nebraska," critic Jim Walsh wrote in MinnPost.com. The Minneapolis Star-Tribune called him one of the region's "most captivating and evocative songwriters."

David is a native of rural Illinois (he's from Casey, home of the World's Largest Rocking Chair) and he has lived in Texas and Minnesota. He now lives in the Middle East. This summer marks his return to U.S. stages after two years abroad. He has opened for Tom Paxton, Bill Staines, Ellis Paul, Garnet Rogers and others.

Bernie King and the Guilty Pleasures came into being in early 2010 when they put together a group for a local jug band contest. The synergy between original members Bernie King, Julie King, Matt Smith, and John Kurtis Dehn was so natural and right that they decided to keep on making great music as a band. And that's exactly what they did as witnessed by the release of two great albums, 2012’s Bernie King and the Guilty Pleasures and 2014’s Pretty Little Gal.

2014 saw a change as original bassist Matt Smith retired to focus on his photography and the band welcomed new bassist Bradley Smith. Bradley's up tempo style was an immediate perfect fit and kept the band right on track for bigger and better things.

2014 was also the first year for the band dominated Reverbnation’s bluegrass category sitting in the #1 spot for many, many months. A feat they then repeated in both 2015 and 2016!

Up for the coming year are many great events that you’ll want to check out on the Shows tab. Also we’ll be previewing some new tracks for our next release on the Music tab along with some of our current favorites.
