Hand oVer F!st / Bio

HAND oVer FIST was formed in 2009, in Toronto Canada. Michael Ragusa, a California native relocated to the Great White North and quickly recruited local session musicians to record the debut CD entitled 'Cry Out'
Shortly thereafter, Hand Over Fist 'HOF' started playing the local clubs throughout southern Ontario. While HOF was building momentum, a few lineup changes were inevitable due to scheduling conflicts, of differences of direction, HOF recruited Toronto native RC Ricci on bass and backup vocals, followed soon thereafter by Stu Beaudoin on lead vocals. As a 3 piece, HOF still needed to fill in some missing pieces, Auditions began for a full time drummer and second guitarist. However that didn't stop Hof's progress and in the summer of 2012, HAND oVer FIST returned to the studio to record 4 additional tracks for the upcoming follow up release to Cry Out. Already, the new HAND oVer FIST Track called 'Journey' (inspired by Michael's father) was released to worldwide radio and positive reviews!
With the addition of Toronto drummer Steve Fergusson, and Darren O'Driscoll on guitar, HAND oVer FIST
resumed it's live shows.
2012 brings the next chapter to HOF along with a new CD & new tour dates!!!
2013 HOF starts the year off with our first show March 26th.. Main support for 80's MTV rockers 'Y&T' at the Rockpile.
