Jack Hannah (guitar), Joe Hannah (bass), and Lon Hannah (guitar), comprise The Sons of the San Joaquin, but it is their close harmony vocals that give them their distinctive sound, a sound that has carries them from local church and community gatherings to such far-flung locales as Switzerland and Japan…where traditional cowboy music is esteemed above contemporary country music…and the Arab peninsula, where the trio was greeted warmly by a society that regards its own traditions to be a close parallel to the American cowboy heritage. Here at home their wide spread acceptance is an indication both of the rich durability of the traditional Western music they present, as well as the outstanding original cowboy songs of Jack Hannah.
The Sons are finding rapidly growing fan support throughout the United States, Canada and the world at large. A lifetime of family singing, an uncanny vocal blend and a true love of cowboy music make any performance by the Sons of the San Joaquin a rich, unforgettable experience. With many recordings to their credit, "Charlie and the Boys" from their newest CD "Sing One For The Cowboy" was awarded the 2000 Heritage Award from the National Cowboy Hall of Fame and Western Heritage Center. Be sure to catch their sets.
