The Buffalo Philharmonic will perform with Grammy-nominated multi-Platinum pop-rock trio Hanson in a special concert at Kleinhans on June 7, 2019.
Hanson's most ambitious musical project, the "String Theory" symphonic tour and album, features songs spanning the band's career, including some of the best-known material ("MMMBop," "Where's The Love," "This Time Around") alongside brand-new or never-released-to-the-public songs that tell a story of aspiration, despair, fortitude and, ultimately, a return to optimism.
Hanson was founded in 1992. Brothers Isaac, Taylor and Zac spent their first five years building a fanbase as an independent band in Tulsa, Oklahoma, performing both classic rock 'n' roll and soul music as well as original material to form their own blend of harmony-driven, soulful pop-rock.
After five years and two independent albums, Hanson released their major -label debut in 1997, and saw a meteoric rise with the international smash single "MMMBop" from the album "Middle Of Nowhere," which garnered multiple Grammy nominations and five consecutive top 40 singles (including "Where's The Love," "I Will Come To You" and "Weird").
In 2003, Hanson founded their own independent label, 3CG Records, starting a new era for themselves. Their first independent release, "Underneath" in 2004, was a No. 1 Billboard Independent Album. Since then, Hanson has released three more studio albums, as well as an ongoing stream of special products and live albums through their label, and toured the world, continuing to cultivate a vibrant global fanbase. The group has sold over 16 million albums to date.
