Half Hand Hoodoo is a four piece 100% blues band with Dave Smith on vocals & guitar, Karl Moon on guitar, Mark Wootton on drums and with Angus Milne as their regular bass.

The band is a leading act on the North of England blues circuit with a number of residences and regular performances across the North as well as numerous festival appearances, including the Colne and Burnley blues festivals.

The band play a mix of different blues styles from the slide of Muddy Waters “Louisiana Blues” to the swing of Eddie “Cleanhead” Vincent “Kidney Stew Blues”. A typical set often closes with a one-chord North Mississippi Blues instrumental in open G – to rave audience reviews.

Half Hand Hoodoo believe that blues music should be played with fire and passion: you have to give more than 100% to do it justice.

Smith & Moon also play as a two piece.

Both line-ups are available for gigs and festivals in the UK and internationally.
