Hans Wenzel and The Eighty Sixers
Hans Wenzel and The Eighty Sixers
Old-Soul Southeastern Rock from Charleston SC

Not long after moving to Charleston, SC in June of 2015, Hans met up with guitarist Chris Fulmer at an all original open mic night called "Holy City Confessionals", held at Hometeam BBQ in West Ashley, Charleston, SC. From that time on, the two worked tirelessly to write new material and form a full working band.

It didn't take long to put together an all-star cast of musicians to round out the group, including Dan Wilson on Drums/Percussion (Deepwater Soul Society, Jordan Igoe, Kara Hesse Band), and Matt Thompson on Bass (Sol Driven Train, Wadata).

Together, the band has defined an edgy, vocally driven ensemble that embodies the true definition of story telling. With infinite inspiration from haunting tales of heroism, loss, love and personal growth in historic Charleston, SC, the group has quickly amassed a body of work that will draw you in to the old cobblestone laden, foggy backstreets of the South.

Paul Sanchez (of Cowboy Mouth)
Paul Sanchez (of Cowboy Mouth)
Rock from New Orleans

Paul Sanchez was a founding member of the rock band Cowboy Mouth, with whom he recorded 11 albums and toured with for 14 years.
He is also known for his role in the HBO series TREME where he played himself; and as the creative force behind the musical NINE LIVES, a musical adaptation of the New York Times Best Seller. NINE LIVES follows the lives of nine people in New Orleans from 1965 (the year Hurricane Betsy ravaged the city) through 2005 (the year of Hurricane Katrina) and beyond.
Paul Sanchez transforms audiences with his unique blend of music and storytelling at once powerful, sad, humorous, entertaining, and hopeful.
Like many New Orleanians, Paul was tremendously impacted by Hurricane Katrina, having lost his home. Sanchez, like many, struggled to find a new identity in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the flood. After much soul-searching, he left Cowboy Mouth to go solo.
Paul Sanchez began writing songs and playing his first professional shows in the French Quarter before he turned sixteen. By the 1980’s, Paul was an established part of the New Orleans rock scene, playing in The Backbeats along with Vance DeGeneres, another native New Orleanian.
He lived in New York City in the late 80's and was part of the now legendary Anti-Folk scene in the East Village.
In January of this year Off Beat Magazine awarded Paul Songwriter of the Year 2014, he won three Best of The Beat Awards in 2010 : Songwriter of The Year, Best Song of The Year, Best Folk/Rock Album for Stew Called New Orleans, his duet record with friend and collaborator John Boutte.
In April of 2010 Gambit Weekly awarded him Best Roots Rock Performer at The Big Easy Awards. He won his first Big Easy Award as Best Emerging Artist in 1993 with Cowboy Mouth.
Primarily a songwriter Sanchez has written songs for Darius Rucker of Hootie and The Blowfish, had a song in the country charts recorded by The Eli Young Band, and a song covered by Irma Thomas, the Soul Queen of New Orleans. His song, Foot Of Canal Street, written with John Boutte, has been recorded by artists in New Orleans, St. Louis, Chicago, Los Angles, New York and Canada.

Paul resides in the Treme neighborhood, where he sings and breathes everything New Orleans.
