If "Americana" is just some catchphrase, just about any band could fit the bill. But if it's a true genre, well then, Hank Waite and the Milkmashers define it. Steeped in tradition but always fresh. Honest and, honestly, American. Step up, friend: hear your favorite song again for the first time.
Why this name?
Milkmashing is, unfortunately, something of a lost art. It involves taking something that's nearly perfect as it is (milk, for example, or country music) and then trying to mash it up into something even more delectable. Similar experiments have worked out well with potatoes.
Do you play live?
Oh yeah.
Band History:
Hank grew up in rural Colorado among tough people with tender hearts--the kind of characters that populate his stories--and aspired to be a poet. While living in West Virginia for several years, he soaked up the music of Appalachia and decided that he liked his poems with a side of guitar.

In Washington he met Rick, Jim, Rebecca, Dave and Sean, and Hank had to admit he also liked his poems generous helpings of bass, drums, piano, viola -- and even more guitar.
