John Hanes

John Hanes has been playing drums in the Bay Area for over 30 years. From Diamonda Galas to Etta James, from Starbucks commercials to Werner Herzog's  "Grizzly Man" soundtrack, from Oakland Opera Theater's production of Anthony Davis's "X, the Life and Times of Malcolm X" 

to industrial rockers Chrome, John has performed and recorded with a diverse array of artists across a broad spectrum of genres. Since 2000, John has entered the world of experimental music and free improvisation, playing in a number of bay area ensembles; and electronic music, performing on laptop solo as Organ of Qwerty and in Hanes/Adams, a duo with Rova Sax Quartet's Steve Adams. A student of roots musics of all kinds, John loves a good shuffle.
