The Hattie Lewis Band <3 a family band Made in America utilizing the old childhood toy a Casio organ and its many rhythms and tempos leaving the congas in the back corner for now. Up until 2012 this group gathered a following not just for their music but for the entertainment it delivered. Started in 2004 with Jodie (Lewis) Smith as the lead singer and (Daddio) Rob Lewis along with (Uncle) Tom McGinley on the guitar and conga drums. These musicians worked hard to put together a set for their first gig in July of 2005 on the shores of Lake Ontario at Schinook Harbor. From there they played their way across Cayuga County until October 2006 when Jodie, the lead singer, decided it was time to move on and get married changing her title to Army Wife! Her sister, Jolean (Lewis) Bliss decided it was time to do her part and help keep the band together. The newest member of the Hattie Lewis Band picked up right where they left off and then some. A new mix of covers gave way for the need to add some base. Rob and Tom stepped up to the plate and found the need to instrument change back and forth on guitar and bass due to their unique rhythms. A new chapter in the band's story brings back sister Jodie from her travels as an Army wife. Another tour of duty for her husband she decides to come home to wait it out bringing along some inspired original songs we feel had to be sent from above. Excited about a new direction for the band and even more so when yet another missing musical link appeared. Dear old friend of the family, Jeff Roth, adds the sweet sounding mandolin to this new and improve groovy group. Harmony between sisters, brand new soul filled originals, instrumental fusion, hat fan followers it's only the beginning. With an open window to the world HLB should bring harmony to all it's listeners.
