The Lewis Band was a country band formed in 1935 by Altie Lewis and his friend, Hugh Hartio, and 4 friends.
In 1921, 12 year-old Alton "Altie" Lewis started a solo career and released records of his own works. Soon, 31 year-old Hugh Hartio discovered the records and became Altie's manager. In 1924, Lewis released his first (and only) album, The works of Altie Lewis. Then Lewis decided to collabrate with Hartio and a few other friends he knew. Then it was 1927, and Hugh's Hillbillies, the predecessor of the Lewis Band had formed. More info coming soon
