Hanks & Company, a traditional blueglass/bluegrass gospel band, is
comprised of members Eddie Hanks, Debbie Hanks and Danny
Milner. This group loves the Lord and enjoys playing for churches,
festivals, fundraisers, or any event in need of a traditional bluegrass
sound with a positive, uplifting message.
Eddie and his wife, Debbie, helped form the band Cedar Creek in
2007 before it was renamed Music Mountain in 2008. In 2008
Eddie and Debbie left Music Mountain and asked Danny Milner to
join them in July. That’s when they became Hanks & Company.
Hanks & Company has a CD project which was released February
2010 and is titled “Songs To Sing, Tales To Tell.”
Eddie has been playing guitar and mandolin since he was about 7
years old. He began playing in his father's band called Texas Grass
then moved on to play in Southern Union in 1992. Since 2004,
Eddie has concentrated mainly on his banjo pickin'.
Debbie is his wife, and before she met Eddie she had not had any
experience with bluegrass. She enjoyed singing in church and
school choirs, and she also sang with an a Capella group while
attending Texas Tech University in 1987. Eddie began teaching
her how to play the bass in 2004 and states that he has "created a
monster" now! This couple lives in Seymour, Texas.
Danny began playing guitar as a young boy. His family was
extremely musical, and he tells of many songs his mama would sing
to him as a child. His daddy was an evangelical pastor, so they
traveled quite a bit singing and playing throughout the South.
He has also performed on live radio programs as part of his family's
ministry. He makes his home with his wife in Iowa Park, Texas.
