"He's a fantastic sax player."
-Elvin Bishop

"Terry's one of the few songwriters around today who can make me think, "Damn, why didn't I think of that!?"
-Rick Estrin (Rick Estrin & The Nightcats)

"Hanck wails like a big dog on sax and vocals..."
Paul Libertore, Marin Independent-Journal

"Terry Hanck is a party on a platter."
-Music City Blues News

"His writing demonstrates his unique ability to fuse various elements--soul, blues, ballads and boogaloo--into a cohesive whole."
-Chico News & Review

"Hanck is keeping the soul-sax torch burning!”​

"I just received the newest release, From Roadhouse To Your House, from Terry Hanck Band and it's outrageous! Opening with 'Good Rockin' Goin' On,' this live release is smoking right out of the block. Everyone knows that Hanck is a great sax player but he's constantly pushing it on this release and I think everyone will be mighty pleased!... Anyone who walked away from this concert disappointed, passed"
-Bman's Blues Report

“An unreconstructed bad ass to the bone, Hanck is still piling on the awards ... I hope his mantle is strong enough to hold all the awards coming his way for a long time to come. Killer stuff that knows no end of good times."
-Chris Spector, Midwest Record

“Exciting, tenor sax-driven blues and soul. This Chicago native, now based in South Florida, is steeped in those genre’s traditions as a musician, singer and songwriter Hanck’s choice of material and his presentation are impeccable. He starts this album with Elvin Bishop’s “Right Now is the Hour,” and he does it proud. The slow burn of “T’s Groove” is hot enough to cook a thick steak on. Vocally, Hanck drips 1950s soul on the first half of “My Last Teardrop,” then punches it into overdrive. If soul/blues is your bag, grab this."
Bob Gottlieb, Elmore Magazine
