"Hans Wenzel & the Eighty-Sixers mix heartfelt country and raw rock on new LP"

One listen to the new album Lost & Lawless proves that their instincts were correct. The sound on the album is wide open, drenching Fulmer's reverb-heavy guitar and Wenzel's whiskey-sour wail with echo and allowing the rhythm section plenty of room to dig into the loping, mid-tempo rockers. Despite the decidedly "big" sound, each element is still easy to pick out, and nothing sounds blurred or blunted. - Charleston City Paper


Still working on that hot first release.



Not long after moving to Charleston, SC in June of 2015, Hans met up with guitarist Chris Fulmer at an all original open mic night called "Holy City Confessionals", held at Hometeam BBQ in West Ashley, Charleston, SC. From that time on, the two worked tirelessly to write new material and form a full working band.

It didn't take long to put together an all-star cast of musicians to round out the group, including Dan Wilson on Drums/Percussion (Deepwater Soul Society, Jordan Igoe, Kara Hesse Band), and Matt Thompson on Bass (Sol Driven Train, Wadata).

Together, the band has defined an edgy, vocally driven ensemble that embodies the true definition of story telling. With infinite inspiration from haunting tales of heroism, loss, love and personal growth in historic Charleston, SC, the group has quickly amassed a body of work that will draw you in to the old cobblestone laden, foggy backstreets of the South.

The band's debut full length record, "Lost and Lawless" is available now.
