Bio

Ten Hands is a funky rock band based in Denton Texas. They started playing together in 1987, while several were students at the University of North Texas. Over the years, they have had several studio and live releases and played hundreds of live shows, from sold-out SRO nights in Deep Ellum, touring coast to coast, at many clubs, venues, and college bars in between. Ten Hands is a typical “Guitar-Bass(Chapman Stick)-Drums” rock band with the addition of a gregarious lead singer-keyboardist-front man and dynamic multi-instrumentalist percussion-vibraphonist.

Described as a cross between the jazz-rock-art style of Frank Zappa and the psychedelic punk of the Meat Puppets, Ten Hands is known for their energetic and fun live shows. Born from Denton, Texas, in the mid-1980s, 30 miles north of Dallas, Ten Hands is once again pleasing crowds in their home state. Their music tends to be frenetic, syncopated, and funky. Matched with Paul Slavens’ vocals, and political assertions that denigrated the ruling elite, the complacent middle class, and environmental evils, Ten Hands have been one of the more politically oriented Texas bands of the era. They rarely forget to be fun, however, and their musical playfulness and lyrical absurdism belie any pretensions they may have.
