Mr. Hand is taking an extended break

Posted By Mr. Hand on September 20th, 2011

Hello everyone!  Mr. Hand would like to let you all know that starting in January 2012 we are taking a break from performing.  We have no definite plans for how long or how short this break will be. Only that after 16 years of playing without any extended breaks, we sure could use it, and need a nice break.

We have some great shows lined up for the rest of 2011 at some of our favorite places and we hope that you’ll join us to celebrate the last 16 years. There are also some special things that we’re lining up for a few of these final shows. We’ll be sure to pass those plans along once they are confirmed.

Thanks again for your support over the years and the good times shared, see you soon!

Show Report: The Phoenix Room

The Phoenix Room is another of our favorite stops. Not only is the staff a great group of people but the crowds that show up here are always ready to party. Our last stop at the Phoenix Room was no exception! We were treated to an energetic crowd looking for a good time and some good music. And we were happy to crank it up and rock out!

Please welcome a new member to Mr. Hand

That’s right, we’re adding a 4th member to the band! After about 10 years with 3 members we’re happy to welcome Mike Fitzpatrick as the new bass player in Mr. Hand.

Mike has been a friend of the band for several years and actually used to be part of our crew as our lightman. Most recently he’s been playing with one of Omaha’s premier cover bands Desperate Bandwives. Before that he played with D’Vine, Matt’s Rocket Collection, Evertide, and David 14. He also maintains his personal website which covers all of his musical pursuits. Outside of music Mike is an in-demand Attorney. Check out his website –

Help us welcome Mike to the Mr. Hand rock & roll party!

A few weeks back we loaded up our gear and made the drive north for 2 fun nights at the Depot in Norfolk, NE. As usual, our old stomping grounds did not disappoint! Both nights were great. Thanks to everyone who came out and thanks to our friends at the Depot for having us.

Show Report: Winside

Posted By Mr. Hand on January 2nd, 2011

We had the privilege to play a private party in Winside, NE a few weeks back. It was a great time. Despite the Huskers losing the football game that evening, everybody stayed in the party mood and made the night fun. Thanks to all who put this party on and invited us to be a part of it!
