Formed in 2004, LIGHTNING HAND has been one of Northern California's foremost Classic/Rock, Blues and Americana Roots bands. The band plays covers and original music with an emphasis on 60's and 70's music, although we do play some 80's-present. Fans of Eric Clapton, Allman Brothers, Grateful Dead, The Band, Rolling Stones, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Black Crowes, Tom Petty, Lynyrd Skynrd, ZZ Top, Neil Young and traditional Blues/Americana will absolutely love the band!! They have been rated the #1 band here at Gigmasters in many categories including: Rock, Covers, Americana, Acoustic, Southern Rock and Wedding band. LIGHTNING HAND has played well over 70 gigs from Gigmasters with positive reviews, earning us a 5 star rating.
LIGHTNING HAND has played just about every hotspot here in Sacramento including Marilyn's on K, The Torch Club, Po Boyz, Powerhouse Pub and Constable Jacks as well as ARCO Arena, Red Hawk Casino, Raley Field, Konocti Harbor, Harvey's in Tahoe, the Sacramento Grand Ballroom, The Hunington Langham and Laguna Del Sol. The band has also opened/played before for ZZ Top, Journey, David Gans, Mumbo Gumbo and the Parrotheads. The band has had many songs played on radio stations, including 2 songs being featured on National Public Radio.
There is feedback from previous clients on our Gigmasters page. Please review these to get a feel of what others have said about our performances. We have played more Gigmasters gigs than anyone in the Sacramento area for a reason. We have played big auditoriums as well as small rooms as wide as an average kitchen, and will cater to whatever your needs. LIGHTNING HAND will also let you custom amke your own setlist by simply picking whatever songs you wnat from our extensive songlist. You can hear some of our music(covers & originals) here at Gigmasters. This will give you a general idea of how we sound live. Our own Cd, "Almost To Nowhere" has sparked major interest from labels, fans and critics, allowing LIGHTNING HAND to continue touring the West Coast region.
Also need ACOUSTIC only for weddings? LIGHTNING HAND can also play as a 3-5 piece ALL acoustic band. Fans of Americana & Roots music will love the diversity. We have done this quite a bit for wedding cocktail/dinner hours and ceremonies too! If you need an ALL ACOUSTIC event, please see our side band, HOMEGROWN SOUNDS, also here at Gigmasters(Gigmasters/Music/HomegrownSounds).
Find out why LIGHTNING HAND is considered one of the best received Northern California bands. With 100+ years of experience between members, they are an extremely danceable band that keeps your party on their feet. LIGHTNING HAND has been entertaining crowds in Sacramento and Northern California for quite some time.

These guys will not let you down. They are not only the most professional band members I know, but the most accommodating and extremely talented. They went out of there way for us at our wedding in more ways than one - from letting my brother and me sing a song while they played back up to accommodating requests from the crowd. They played the perfect ceremony music, cocktail hour music, dinner music and of course every guest was cutting a rug to their tunes at the reception. Thanks for everything - it would not have been the same without you guys! Don't hesitate to hire them for yourself.

From beginning to end I can't imagine having a better experience than with this band. Every request was accomodated and they were able to work with every suggestion we had. The peformance was exactly what you would want from a band; professional, entertaining, exciting and best of all they are able to get people out of their seats and on the dance floor. This band WILL be one of the best memories you have of any event you ask them to perform at. I couldn't recommend them more and I would have them play at any event where I couldn't afford to dissapoint. Truly first class with a heavy dose of talent and a great attitude. I really can't imagine a better choice.

Well where do I start? Lightning Hand Rocks! we had to change venues at the last minute due to weather and they still showed up on time and with booming energy that was focused on the success of our event. The band was comprised of players that loved to play as much as we loved to listen. The group was one of the most giving and open minded easy going group I have ever worked with. I do this for a living so that say's a lot. Several CD's were sold for trhe sole purpose of the purchasers desire to book them for their own event. the entire crowd of 200 plus folks all gave positive feedback to "my band". Book em now! or you will regret it!!!
