Groupe Country US formé en 2002, les Hacienda Brothers sont composés de Chris Gaffney, Dave Gonzalez, Dave Berzansky, Dale Daniel et Hank Maninger.
classic-style country music with a strong undertow of vintage soul, the Hacienda
Brothers are a collaboration between two gifted roots music artists. Vocalsist
Chris Gaffney is a singer and
songwriter who has released several albums with his band, the Cold Hard Facts,
and recorded and toured as a member of Dave Alvin & the Guilty Men, while Dave
Gonzalez is best known as the guitarist, singer, and songwriter with the veteran
blues-rockabilly combo the Paladins. Longtime friends Gaffney and Gonzalez first
performed together when they played an informal set for a mutual friend's
birthday party in 2002; Gonzalez was impressed with the results, and as he was
looking for an outlet for the country-style songs he was unable to perform with
the Paladins, he proposed a more formal collaboration.
Teaming up with David Berzansky on pedal steel, Hank Maninger on bass, and Dale Daniel on drums, the duo adopted the name the Hacienda Brothers, and set up a base of operations in Tucson, AZ. Gonzalez, who has a passionate interest in vintage cars, struck up a friendship with fellow gearhead Dan Penn, the legendary producer and songwriter who was a key figure in the Muscle Shoals sound crew, and he persuaded Penn to produce the debut Hacienda Brothers album. Penn also contributed two songs to the sessions, which appeared on the group's self-titled 2005 release. What's Wrong with Right was released the following year.
