BIRDHAND is a rock n’ roll band from Santa Cruz, CA that formed in late 2010. Within a year, the group caught the attention of Bad Brains’ bassist, Darryl Jenifer. BIRDHAND went on to record a debut EP, which was produced by Jenifer and since, has shared stages with bands such as Bad Brains, Baths, Memoryhouse, Soft Pack, Judgment Day, and Bear Hands.”
