Larry and Jim of the hand band, which is from North Hampton, Pennsylvania, are classically trained, with 76 combined years of practice. The Pennsylvania Hand Band is a musical novelty act consisting of two manualists (hand musicians). The three have teamed up to form an extremely rare act – an entire band of body-part musicians. Together they can play many genres of music with or without a karaoke background. [1]
