A lot of local bands have come & gone over the years but none have ever laid down a groove as fat !. I have been graced by a lot of the shows and have never once been disappointed. The word “band” is a complete understatement of the group of PHENOMENAL musicians they are. I’ve seen a lot of different groups in a lot of different towns and I have yet to see one to compare to Hands On.  The sound is never too loud, they are always rite in the pocket, and you can tell that they play out of pure joy and passion for music. Nowhere else can you here the different cultures of music and the tone and playing Mr. Maza has is just mind boggling. He is without a doubt a master of the guitar. I’ve learned a lot from watching and talking with the band! I expect good things to come from y’all in the future.

I have known, and been a fan of Hands On for over 12 years. Not only are the guys great people, their musicianship is above and beyond their peers. They know what their audience wants, and they don’t disappoint. If they have one flaw, it’s that they leave you wanting more. With the countless professional cover bands in the New Orleans area that are staples of Jazz Fest, French Quarter Fest, etc… there was only one choice for my wedding reception. If you want party music, country, rock , or enjoy fresh original music they can do it all!
