Hank Sundown was born deep in the woods in Norway a few moons ago. His love for british style teddy boy rock & roll, led him to start the band The Cascadez in 2001, later renamed Hank Sundown & The Roaring Cascades.
The music is pure rock & roll, with a few detours to blues and country music. They are heavily influenced by bands like Crazy Cavan & The Rhythm Rockers, Teencats and Shotgun. But also the likes of Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis.
Hank Sundown have released seven CDs with original songs only, a rarity in todays rock & roll and rockabilly scene.
They have toured Norway, Sweden, Finland (sort of), Germany, Netherlands, France and the UK.
The line up, as of 2022 is:
Arild Rønes - vocals, (mostly rhythm) guitar
Christopher Johansen - lead guitar, vocals
Ole Evensen - bass, backing vocals
Petter Skoglund - drums
