WEEKLY PIC

The wheels of creativity are spinning as we prepare for String Theory. How many ideas?? How long is a piece of string?


MESSAGE FROM THE BAND

We have had an intense week working on music for the 2018 Members EP, but the results have been really cool.  There is an eclectic sound as you jump from song to song, but at this point I think that is what fans have come to expect.  Bad For Me, Gold Miner, Young and Dumb, even looking at the titles you get a sense that each song has a distinct sound.  We will be sharing more from the making as we lead up to HANSON Day and the release of the new EP next month.

2018 marks two decades since our first world tour, though our focus this year is on String Theory (lots more coming on this) and doing things we have never done before, it is still fun to look back.  During HANSON Day this year we will be adding some never before seen footage to the Movie Night at Circle Cinema and the focusing our Storytellers concert on that same time, what we were writing and playing when we were meeting many of you for the first time.

Isaac, Taylor and Zac

Site Updates

By | April 5, 2018

The following updates have been made to the site recently:

Lyrics
By request, Pre-Fame albums have been split up into Daydreams in the Night, The Beginnings and Trinity for Christ instead of all being lumped together under The Beginnings

Database
Listings for Lead Singers have been added under the database tab.  There are many we have categorized as “Unknown“, if you know who sings lead or think that any of the other listings are incorrect, let us know.  Lead singer pages show the tracks from the album by that singer only, as voted for on our twitter poll.

What Songs Have You Heard Live
We received a request to make the listing page more user friendly. While we explore other options for you to add tour listings to your account, we have added links for each year to the top of the page that will quickly jump you to that year to add shows to your checklist.

We received a request to display what percentage of the songs in the database you have heard live. This number is now displayed with your other stats like number of songs heard live and number of unique songs heard live. This is based off all of the songs in the database, not just those performed live.

WEEKLY PIC

Musical & animal instincts at work here in the studio this week.


MESSAGE FROM THE BAND

This week is shaping up to be another busy one here at HANSON HQ. Last week the public on-sale of Back To The Island 2019 began and within a couple days it was SOLD OUT! I guess there are a lot of people like us that want to go…Back to the Island. Back stateside, we have been enjoying hearing from fans all over the US about their excitement and curiosity for our new musical project String Theory which is officially coming to Virginia, Pennsylvania and Oklahoma…so far. Inside the war room at the studio we have been deep in the brother cave as we record and write the new music for this years HANSON.Net EP. No matter how many times we try and plan for what the EP’s will sound like it seems we always go an unexpected direction once the heat is on…we think you will like it. A reminder to many of you who have been members (or are), you have to be a member to join us for BTTI or to get this new music and as the events for the year go on-sale, those members only lines and pre-sales are only for members so basically if you’re a member, you are winning. Isaac actually let his membership lapse so he’s not getting the new EP :o). Here in Tulsa, we are preparing to host what will be our best and biggest HANSON Day event (May 17-19th) and last week we officially announced this year’s Hop Jam Beer and Music Festival on May 20th, the Sunday following HANSON Day. THJ brings together a massive craft beer selection (75+ brewers) and an epic music festival. This will be our fifth year to host it and it’s just getting better, which is one more reason we hope to see you on Main Street in May. Happy Easter to all who are celebrating this weekend.

Have a great week.

Isaac, Taylor and Zac

By | March 27, 2018

THE HOP JAM BEER & MUSIC FESTIVAL 2018!

We’re excited to announce the 5th annual Hop Jam Beer & Music Festival will take place on Sunday 20th May 2018!

The festival will again take place at the heart of the Tulsa Arts District, and will introduce an increasingly diverse and impressive list of breweries from Oklahoma, across the US, and around the world, alongside a free All-Ages concert with a robust music lineup, to be announced. The 8-block footprint includes craft beer and all-ages areas, featuring two stages. The festival has something for guests of all ages and interests, with food trucks, family activities, national music acts, access to many local restaurants and amenities, and of course more great craft beer.

It’s hard to believe we are about to host our fifth Hop Jam festival but it is clear to see that the craft beer community is here to stay and we are glad to have been a part of the revival we have seen here in Oklahoma.

The Craft beer portion of the event will feature more than 75 breweries from 14 states and 5 countries including our own Hanson Brothes Beer alongside with other Oklahoma favorites Marshall, COOP and American Solera, plus leading US craft brewers Dogfish Head, Jolly Pumpkin, Destihl and Evil Twin, and international brewers including Dieu du Ciel, Omnipollo and many more. Some of our special guest brewers will also take part in the Hop Talks panels, where you will get to hear from them directly about their philosophy and vision.

We will be announcing our full music lineup shortly, and will again feature an all-ages free concert on 2 stages, and will include nationally recognized artists and the Awesome Music Opening Band Contest winner, who will open the show. Runners up in the statewide contest will perform on the Park Stage. If you are an Oklahoma artist and you would like to participate, you can submit your music at Tulsaworld.com/AwesomeMusicContest.

We’re proud to have supported the Community Food Bank Of Eastern Oklahoma through the raffle of a one-of-a-kind Hop Guitar made each year especially for the event. To date, the raffle has raised funds to provide 140,000 meals. Raffle tickets for this year’s guitar are available now at TheHopJam.com, or onsite at the Festival.

Tickets for the festival are available online starting today, with a variety of offerings from beer tasting to VIP options including early entry, access to the Hop Talks panels and a special VIP lounge offering food and select craft beers. Also on offer is a Music VIP ticket for discerning music fans, which features a private viewing platform, indoor amenities, food and select craft beers.

Fifth annual Hop Jam date announced, details set for opening band contest

By | March 26, 2018

Tulsa World

Oklahoma’s largest craft beer and music festival will return May 20 to downtown

The Hop Jam, Oklahoma’s largest craft beer and music festival, is turning 5 years old.

Tickets are on sale for the 2018 festival, scheduled Sunday, May 20, in the Tulsa Arts District. Tickets are available at thehopjam.com.

The Hop Jam, founded in 2014 by Tulsa music trio Hanson and its Hanson Brothers Beer Co. with McNellie’s Group, will introduce an increasingly diverse and impressive list of breweries not only from Oklahoma, but also from all across the U.S. and around the world.

The craft beer aspect of the festival will again be accompanied by a free all-ages concert with a robust music lineup, according to a news release. The Hop Jam music performers will be announced at a later date.

“It’s hard to believe we are about to host our fifth Hop Jam festival, but it is clear to see that the craft beer community is here to stay and we are glad to have been a part of the revival we have seen here in Oklahoma,” co-founder Taylor Hanson said.

“When The Hop Jam started, we had nearly every one of the then-dozen breweries in Oklahoma. Now, Oklahoma can boast almost triple that, and we are able to feature them alongside some of the world’s most respected brewers, right here on Main Street, with an incredible music festival creating the soundtrack.”

Musical artists will perform on two stages. The talent roster will include nationally recognized artists and the winner of the Tulsa World’s Awesome Music Opening Band Contest. The contest winner will open the show. Runners-up in the statewide contest will perform on the Park Stage.

To participate in the contest, local artists can submit music at tulsaworld.com/awesomemusiccontest.

Staged in the heart of the Tulsa Arts District, The Hop Jam was designed to celebrate the community and the vibrancy of downtown Tulsa with a welcoming atmosphere that appeals to all ages. The festival has an eight-block footprint and will have something for guests of all ages and interests, including food trucks, family activities, national music acts, access to many local restaurants and amenities and, of course, more great craft beer.

The craft beer portion of the event will feature more than 75 breweries from 14 states and five countries, including Oklahoma favorites Marshall, COOP and American Solera. Leading U.S. craft brewers Dogfish Head, Jolly Pumpkin, Destihl and Evil Twin will be on site, along with international brewers like Dieu du Ciel, Omnipollo and many more.

Some of the special guest brewers will take part in the Hop Talks panels, where guests will get to hear brewers talk about their philosophy and vision.

Ticket sales were scheduled for a Monday, March 26, launch, with a variety of offerings, from beer tasting to VIP options that include early entry, access to the Hop Talks panels and a special VIP lounge with food and select craft beers. A music VIP ticket, for the discerning music fan, features a private viewing platform, indoor amenities, food and select craft beers.

Hanson is again partnering with the McNellie’s Group to host the beer festival. The organizations share an interest in cultivating the craft beer community and fostering world-class events in the state.

Since The Hop Jam began, it is proud to have supported the Community Food Bank Of Eastern Oklahoma through its special Hop Guitar Raffle, which has raised funds to provide 140,000 meals. Tickets are on sale for this year’s guitar fundraiser.

The release said this year’s Hop Jam festival is proud to acknowledge some of the key partners who are lending their support to make the event possible, including iHeart Media, KMOD, The Beat, Tulsa World Media, Rib Crib, Boardwalk Brands, BOK Center, Rustic Cuff and many more.



H-Bomb Show Episode 29: The Hanson Chronicles Vol. 2

By | March 23, 2018

The second half of our two-part series, as a pair of 20-year Hanson concert veterans join me to discuss our memories of the release of Hanson’s six main studio albums. As we entered 2006, more concerts, more partying, and more travel became involved in our Hanson endeavors, and memories began to get fuzzy as the years progressed – but we’ve still got some of our favorite stories and recollections of the latter half of Hanson’s studio offerings. Covered this episode: The Walk, Shout it Out, and Anthem.

This episode also includes some important news regarding the show.

Hanson Beat The System

(Shane Bevel / For The Washington Post)

In the era of Britney Spears and Justin Bieber, the band Hanson sounds almost too good to be true. Famous kids who survived the fame. They not just survived, but prospered. They’re still making music and they’re still popular, able to sell out most of the dates on their nationwide anniversary tour. Brothers Isaac, Taylor and Zac, or Hanson, wrote the pop 90s earworm “MMMBop”, and made it to their 25th year as a band without rehab or reality TV.

“In the world of entertainment, who I am is strange,” says Isaac Hanson, guitarist and oldest brother. “I am a dad with three kids who plays in a band with his brothers and likes it.”

How did they do it? Geoff Edgers goes to Tulsa, Oklahoma and talks to the band about everything from the music business to religion and family. Listen to hear more.
