Born in Ellwood City, PA, Hank Raffetto got his early music education on sax and drums. While in trade school for Drafting and Construction, he "found the blues" while attending shows featuring Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Albert Collins, the Nighthawks and the Fabulous T-birds. This led him into playing bass guitar and forming the band No Money Down.
While running a blues bar named The Ellton (which was later tragically destroyed), Hank helped form The Hellhounds with Don Hollowood. With the addition of Jill West, Blues Attack was born.
In 1995, Hank created The 'Get Off My Case Company', which builds custom traveling cases for touring bands and sound companies. The rest is history in the making!
