Medicine Hat was formed in the early 1990's by Terry Collins, Buddy Jones, Wes Hanna, and Tim Bramlett. By 1995 the group was hitting on all cylinders, touring the southeast full time gathering fans and friends along the way. They recorded two CD's during this time, “Medicine Hat” and “Comfortable” which were both well received and brought critical acclaim as well as national and international recognition from several premier music publications as well as radio airplay locally and nationally. In their history Medicine Hat has shared the stage with Jefferson Starship, Col. Bruce Hampton and the Aquarium Rescue Unit, Cheap Trick, The David Nelson Band, Drivin' and Cryin' , The Guess Who, The Blue Dogs, and Cravin’ Melon to name a few. In 2000 members of Medicine Hat went their separate ways pursuing individual careers in music but due to fan requests the band has regrouped to play as often as their busy schedules will allow. With a revolving cast of bass players lead by good friend David Stephens who has been in The Commodores, Ohio Players, and Diana Ross touring bands, other Bass players have included Chris Nisoff, Greg Myers, and Clark Mitchell. With a signature “Earthy” style and known for their showcase live jam vibe Medicine Hat represents a unique slice of southern rock music.
