Painted Hands+Bujie & the Highrise

Painted Hands

We are pure musicians who love what we do.

The band began in 2011. It was founded by Dreux LeBourgeois (drums) who was joined by Joey Goedtel (vocals) in a quest to form a band. Michael Pagones joined to help with anything the band needed; at the time this was bass guitar. (the bass got passed around a lot along the way). Michael eventually moved to the keyboard, passing the bass to Josh Scroggins, who passed it to Aaron Sanchez after Dylan James left. After a good year of Josh Scroggins on guitar, he left the band. Collin Nichols joined on as a fill-in guitarist. This was until Dylan James refilled his position. Other past guitarists include Will Boler and Logan Baron.
The Painted Hands are a band from Slidell, Louisiana. Each of the band's members brings his own style to the mix making a wide variety of sound. This creates a blend of musical styles and genres that pleases a variety of listeners.
