Higher Hands is a veteran group of heavy hitters bringing the soul / funk revival to new audiences with a spontaneous energy clearly captured on the bands debut recording Grab Hold.
The band brings light to the darkest corners of the dance floor with its original fusion of funky rhythms, soulful songs and alternative hip-hop.

Higher Hands is Marty Bouchard- drums and vocals; Matt Dalton- sax and vocals; Larry Byrne- keys, vocals and low-end theories; Jay Crawford- vocals and percussion and Ben Bays- percussion.
