Jessica Hannan Band Countrifies Ohio Bike Week 2022


On Friday, May 28th, I made my way to a bar in Sandusky, Ohio, called Margaritaville, an outdoor venue for local bands.  Ohio Bike Week always brings out a ton of local bands to this stage.  On this day I happened across a group called the Jessica Hannan Band.  Lead singer Jessica Haag, drummer David Haag, guitar Taylor Schlupp and Bass player Mark Morich.  This entire band grew up in music.  I spent time listening to some of the best cover songs I’ve heard.  I was excited when I heard some of their original songs as well.  The Jessica Hannan Band kept the crowd engaged and with a biker crowd it’s hard to do, because there are so many types of people in the crowd.  You got classic rockers, you got country and even hip hop.  I watched people of all ages cheering, dancing and clapping their hands and stomping their feet to this band.

Jessica Haag (Jessica Hannan) lead vocalist has been singing and playing most of her life she started her stage career at just age 3.  You can see her love for music even in her smile.  David Haag grew up in music as well drumming from a young age.  Now the husband of Jessica Hannan, I’m sure they will be making music for a long time to come.

Taylor Schlupp has to be one of the most talented guitar players I think I’ve ever heard.  What started out as playing drums with his dad lead to his love for guitar as well.  Taylor’s backup vocals compliments Jessica’s voice so well and when they sing together it’s wonderful sound.  Taylor and Jessica do a lot of acoustic shows as well.

Mark Morich is the newest member of this musical group. Mark began playing at age 9 was in his first band by the age of 13.  Once he heard the Jessica Hannan Band was looking for a bass player he didn’t even hesitate to jump on board.  His enthusiasm is undeniable standing to Jessica’s left slapping out the wicked bass line.

The love music brought these good folks together and I’m sure music will keep them there.  They continue to grind doing what they love and it shows in every song.  You can tell in the first 5 minutes that this band was born to play.

If you happen to be planning a weekend bar run or just on the prowl for some good wholesome music.  Be on the lookout for this musical group I can assure you, you will not be disappointed.  From country to southern rock and everything in between this band ROCKS!  Put your dancing shoes on grab a cold beer and enjoy what these folks do!  Hollar and Swallar!
