The Willie Painter Band
Playing a mix of danceable blues with a nod towards swinging jazz and an eclectic selection of rock and pop tunes, the Willie Painter Band consists of four veterans of the Triangle music scene.
Willie Painter (guitar) and Craig Dittmar (bass) were members of the Boomers, who played for over 20 years in the Triangle and eastern North Carolina. They have performed in the past with Lightnin’ Wells and the Real Gone Cats. Currently they also play with the Pigz Brothers, Mike Hamer and the Rhinoceroses, and the Tommy G Experience. Painter wrote a monthly music column for the Urban Hiker from 1999 to 2004.
Bill Newton (saxophone, harmonica) is a founding member of two Triangle musical institutions: Rebecca and the Hi-Tones and Bill Newton’s Big Blues Quartet. He has recorded with the Indigo Girls and Big Mama E and the Cool, among others.
John Hanks (drums) is the music director for Duke University dance program. He is also a longtime music faculty for the American Dance Festival (ADF), traveling with them to China in 2012 and 2014. A life long resident of Durham, NC, he has been in many bands including: the Hard times Jazz band, the swamis, Rebecca and the Hitones, black dog syndrome, and the Philidor Percussion Group.
