HMC is your east Texas dance band. Our music is a fun family friendly mix of classic country, bluegrass, and gospel, with a little Elvis and Chuck Berry thrown in for good measure. We are an affordable 5 piece band. Our rates reflect the size of band requested from a 2 piece duo to a 5-6 piece full band. We love Jesus, Family, & the USA - especially our soldiers! And we love a party.

They’ve played throughout some of the most well-known venues and events in DFW—including the Dallas Arboretum, Dallas Museum of Art, Perot Museum, State Fair of Texas, Cottonwood Arts Festival, Taste of Addison, and Magnolia’s Silobration establishing themselves as a sought-after choice. They perform as a duo, trio, or five piece band for weddings, private events, festivals, and more.


August 7: Josh Mandreger


Jackson, Michigan was a long trek for East Texas transplant Josh Mandreger, who found himself pursuing love, all the while, also smitten by music. His passion for all things music took the Michigan native on a musical exploration, once he planted his roots in the Piney Woods. These days, you will find Josh, doing what he does best: One man, one guitar. Singing some of your favorite, and some times, eccentric, cover songs and originals. Through the lenses of experience, from the gut, and always, from the cry of his heart, that’s where you’ll find Josh giving his all.
