"Massive word-of-mouth and packed (actually, overpacked) shows -- have certainly paid off for this soulful quartet with their tentacles in ska, funk, and pop. Jordon Blackwell (vocals), David Nachtigall (guitar/vocals), Ben Stark (bass) and newest member Patrick Kelly (drums) have found that small island of confluence between the continents of college rock and party rock."
- Houston Press, Aug 4, 2005
Three-time Consecutive Winners of the Houston Press Music Awards "Best Pop-Rock Band" (2004-2006), The Handsomes’ live show is charismatic, packed with personality, and a magnet for the hundreds of fans attending their shows.
At their core, The Handsomes are a pop-rock band, but the members’ varied experiences in rock, reggae, and funk groups coalesce to form a sound that’s current and distinct.
The Handsomes released their self-titled CD in 2006, "The Handsomes", and were quickly featured on XM Radio XMU’s Radar Report playing songs off the new CD.
