The members of Merrimack Bend have been playing their instruments for most of their adult lives (or more). Dan Sancomb and Les Canney joined forces in early 2010 by way of a Craiglist ad placed by Les looking for someone interested in acoustic jamming. They rehearsed at least once a week, working up tunes by bands like The Grateful Dead, Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton. In early 2012, they decided to broaden their sound by adding a percussionist. Again Craiglist put them in touch with a like-minded soul, Dan Trainor. Lara Hoke joined in mid-2017 on bass. She too is a seasoned player with awesome chops and really knows how to lay down a groove. They bring a uncommon energy to the stage and have a deep, shared respect for the music they play. They have amassed a deep repertoire and have added a bunch of really original originals over their years of playing together. They are now concentrating on recording and gigging around the Merrimack Valley.
