Hanson, Oklahoma’s sensational alternative pop/rock artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Saint Andrews Hall!
The band was formed in Tulsa in 1992 by brothers Isaac, Taylor and Zac Hanson. They began their musical journey by learning to play the piano and Isaac eventually switched to the guitar, Zac started playing drums, and Taylor continued with the keyboard. Their debut performance was at the 1992 Mayfest Arts Festival (in Tulsa) and they released their debut independent album (Boomerang) in 1995. Their second independent album (MMMBop) came out a year later and it featured the original version of the eponymous song that would become their breakthrough hit. Their musical style is best described as pop rock; a genre that originated in the 1950s, influenced by the beat, arrangements, and style of rock and roll but with a greater emphasis on professional songwriting and recording craft. The band currently consists of Isaac (guitar, bass, piano, vocals), Taylor (keyboards, piano, guitar, drums, vocals), Zac (drums, piano, guitar, vocals), and touring members include Dimetres Collins (keyboards, guitar) and Andrew Perusi (bass). They’ve had a stellar career with 6 studio albums, 3 live albums, 3 compilation albums, 13 music videos, 3 extended plays, 13 singles, 2 independent albums, 1 Christmas album, and they’ve sold over 16 million records worldwide.
