Hired Hands Band

Hired Hands Band

The Hired Hands Band is a six-member band from the Kalamazoo area. Members include Willy T. Rose, Bill Hughes, Laura Allison, Bob Allison, Tim Cooper and Dale Hein. Dale, Bill, and Bob founded the band in 2010, originally under the name “Hein, Hughes, & Allison.” Several months later, Tim and Willy T.  joined the group and, shortly thereafter, the name was changed to “The Hired Hands.” Laura, Bob’s daughter, had always made special appearances with her Dad on-stage, but she officially joined the band in 2015. From the beginning, the idea was to combine the members’ collective interests in the Jazz, Blues, Folk, Country and Rock genres to craft an eclectic blend of American roots music. Did it work? If audience response and repeat invitations from venues all over West Michigan are any indication, the answer to that question is an overwhelming “yes!” The Hired Hands repertoire includes a growing number of original songs, some familiar favorites, and obscure gems that come from roads less travelled.
