Hi, I'm Hank Mallery Front Man and Songwriter for the band Crookneck Chandler and the Tibbee Bottom Boys. Check out my band at Crookneckchandler Dot Com (Bandmix won't let me insert the actual web address or link). During the COVID-19 pandemic we've been working on our 3rd recording, "CrookNaked" which we hope to wrap up and release in the spring of 2022. Posted here is some of the stuff I recorded earlier with various friends and bands using things from a boom box to a 4-track recorder to a Nashville Studio and a portable studio called a Boss BR-8 with effects built in. Quality is what it is. You'll need to adjust your volume for some songs recorded at different levels.
Some of my early bands were The Hurting Cowboys (Itawamba Junior College roommates Mark Maharrey, Larry Baker and Scotty Wall), CDM (Campbell, Dugan and Mallery - based in Brooklyn, NY), Hank and the Usuals, Forever Glazed, Vibram Soul, and The 3 Drunk Guys (with my great friends Chuck DeCroix and Scott Teodorski).
I've also included some side gigs that I've done while working with Crookneck Chandler, like a band I formed called Third Boxcar that focused on doing Train Songs. I've even included a couple of original Sea Shanties!
When I lived in Cleveland I was blessed to be able to create and host some incredible concert venues, including Canalway Coffeehouse, Brookstock, Train Day, Brookside Concerts and the Canalway Sunset Concerts.
I wrote my first song when I was 12 called "Today I Took Your Picture Off My Wall" and haven't stopped since.

Munfordville Square Live at Canalway Coffeehouse © Hank Mallery Genre: Acoustic
I've written a few songs about Munfordville, Kentucky. Scott's sister was married in a Primitive Baptist church there near the railroad tracks. A very confused older pastor, who actually spoke in tongues during the service, nearly married Scott to his sister before Scott intervened and pointed out the actual Groom. This recording is from Canalway Coffeehouse in January 2005 with Scott Teodorski. Um, yeah, that's me on the harmonica...

It is what it is! A Modern Day Classic Song! "My doorbell can't be ringing cause my mind is gone". You can sing along! Our first performance of this song was at The Boro in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Crazy, drunk people loved it and were dancing!

Wrote this with Crookneck. Played it out live a few times. Kind of sums up my itchy feet approach to life. Hope this will make it on a future album.

Government Keys Live at Canalway Coffeehouse Album: Live At Canalway Coffeehouse Genre: Acoustic
Scott wrote this catchy tune. Cocktail Thursday was a tradition when we were seasonal Park Rangers at Mammoth Cave. Several of us had Thursdays off and others occasionally called off with the Cave Crud in order to participate. We'd load up in a couple of cars and drive to Bowling Green, the nearest "wet" town, down 31W. When we'd take the right turn onto 31W there was a field of goats and I'd always honk the horn and make them run. We'd drink, play pool and occasionally go Kung-fu Bowling! When you can't find a bottle opener, pull out your government keys! 3 Drunk Guys

Not Safe for Work or Children. Sometimes you're just not feeling up to doing anything. I wrote this song and may be a candidate for The Guinness Book of World Records for the string of F words included. 3 Drunk Guys

"Bunker Hill, Beacon Hill, Kennedys in Coop Devilles". Boston was looking for a new theme song to replace "Love That Dirty Water" song so I wrote this. It was recorded live at a bar called The Usual in Lowell, MA with my friends Bill Crumley, John Marciano and Seth Cooper. We decided to call ourselves Hank and the Usuals. Submitted this song but didn't win the contest. Great lesser known Boston landmarks and kinks as well as some more well known ones interspersed through the song. I think the addition of an instrument called a Melodica paired with Bill Crumley's harmonica is what really helps this song soar

I wrote it. It is what it is. 3 Drunk Guys.
The film tree was a real contraption used at Mammoth Cave to show the welcome film to visitors. It was always breaking down and a guy named Charlie had the frustration of trying to keep it up and running which involved climbing ladders and spooling loose film back into their canisters. When anyone would be looking for Charlie Chuck would just tell them he's gone climbing up in the film tree. 3 Drunk Guys
Song For... Track number: 2 Album: Animal Parts Genre: Acoustic
Recorded in Las Vegas, NV and mastered in Fairview Park, OH. This was our first attempt at self-recording with a semi-professional setup using a Boss BR-8 portable Studio. We each wrote different parts of the song which was fun when it came together to see how things clashed and meshed. 3 Drunk Guys.

Written by Scott Teodorski this became our standard closing song for our Canalway Coffeehouse performances. 3 Drunk Guys. I basically just snuck in a bag of noisemakers and would pull them out and play them to make us all laugh.

Song That Makes the Spiders Dance Live at Canalway Coffeehouse © Hank Mallery Genre: Acoustic
Written one winter night in Boston, MA. I was sitting on a couch strumming my guitar and a small group of Spiders were above me on the wall. Every time I'd start strumming these chords they'd start to move around or dance as the song says. Featuring the 3 Drunk Guys.

CoffeeHouse Song Live at Canalway Coffeehouse © Hank Mallery Genre: Acoustic
I wrote this song to open Canalway Coffeehouse, a concert series I created and hosted once a month for 10 years in Cuyahoga Heights, OH. Folks who played there over the years always said we had the most receptive and appreciative audience in Cleveland. And they were right! This is the 3 Drunk Guys performing.
