Having fine-tuned their craft on their many road trips to the Mississippi delta, the band's music is inspired by the rhythmic grooves you'll hear in any urban or country juke joint on a hot Saturday night. You'd better bring your dancing shoes as you will want to let your hair down and party to the hypnotic sound of the Myers Brothers Band.

Hal uses a looping technology to produce a one-man-band experience, adding subtle but important background beats to his extraordinary ukulele strumming and riffing. Many wouldn’t associate the ukulele as a blues instrument, but Hal takes out all the hula, leaving only room for deep blues to prevail. After his grandfather gave him a uke in ’95, Hal found that it transferred easily from his blues guitar style, complimenting his combination of finger picking and strumming, and gospel vocal style.
