The Hired Hands
- Band - Rock for Hire in the UK

The Hired Hands are an experienced duo from Reading, consisting of Paul Critchfield on vocals, guitar and harmonica, and Dave Horton on vocals, bass guitar, and Alesis SR16 drum machine. They play blues, rock'n'roll and country rock covers from the 50s through to the 80s. Some of their music is well-known, and some more obscure, but it's all carefully chosen as good music!

They pride themselves in never using any backing tracks, so everything is live (OK, apart from the drum machine!).

They cover a wide range of artists such as Elvis Presley, Eddie Cochran, Eric Clapton, Buddy Holly, Ray Charles, Eagles, The Rolling Stones, and Bob Dylan. Great pub music!
