The Hell-Burnin' Sinners first formed in April 2019 as the onstage band in a production of The Grapes of Wrath at Century College, and theatricality remains a central part of their act. They perform bluegrass, country, roots, Americana, and their own growing catalog of original tunes.
The band has played venues such as the Minnesota State Fair, Ginkgo Coffeehouse, Driftwood Char Bar, Midtown Global Market, Eggroll Queen Music Cafe, Broken Clock Brewing Cooperative, CHS Field, and Twin Cities Summer Jam.

Aaron Hooker (Cleavon): Banjo, lead vocals
