In 1982-83, the Hired Hands was established. Coming from various genres, the Hired Hands blended
Country to Rock and Roll. They were the "House Band" for the Bingo Palace in 1983' for over a year.

We enjoyed each others friendship and musicianship. This page is dedicated to the late Mike Franklin.
He was a gentle soul with an affecious smile, great personality and a beautiful voice. We are all better
people for knowing Michael.
