Hurricane Creek-Time and Time Again, CD



Based in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina, Hurricane Creek was originally formed in the
Spring of 1996 by songwriters / musicians George Reeves and Lee Ladensack through a simple newspaper ad
Lee placed in the local classifieds. They immediately became friends and through friends found another kindred
spirit in bassist James Poe from Franklin, NC who has been with the duo since the bands beginning.

Now, together with musicians Dave Hunter on drums, Steve Johannessen on keyboards and vocals and Don
Miller on Saxophone and vocals, they’ve come up with a great selection of cover songs to compliment their
writing style as well as rounding out the four part harmonies that help shape the New Hurricane Creek sound.

For your next occasion contact Hurricane Creek. We have a limited number of performance dates available for
this year so book early!
