Hanson Brothers are a side-project created by Robby Hanson (Rob Wright) and Johnny Hanson (John Wright) with Tommy Hanson (Tom Holliston) - all members of the legendary Canadian band NoMeansNo, but with John Wright on vocal duties in stead of drums). They took their name from characters in the 1977 George Roy Hill film Slap Shot starring Paul Newman. Kenny Hanson (Ken Jensen) of D.O.A. was their original touring drummer, but he died in a house fire in 1995. Kenny Hanson II (Ken Kempster) of Showbusiness Giants became their drummer for subsequent tours.
