Hannum: plays dobro, sings harmony
plays dobro, sings harmony, and tells the occasional odd story between
the band's songs. His quirky stylings on the dobro reflect influences
from Miles Davis and Tito Puente to Stockhausen and Webern. Max's pesky
day job has him taking care of financial and administrative matters
at his commercial roofing company. Prior to his career in the construction
business, Max worked variously as a piano tuner, vacuum salesman, McDonalds
manager, church choir director, process server, busboy, and law clerk.
The only band member (who will admit to) holding a philosophy degree,
Max pursues other useless pastimes such as keeping score at baseball
games, listening to mambo and cumbia music, and watching "Homicide"
re-runs on Court-TV. Max lives with his wife Jessica in Denver.
