Performing all original material in styles reminiscent of Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix, the band features a rhythm section with extreme power as well as beautiful melody. Mike's guitar playing and singing have been critically acclaimed and his songs evoke a strong emotional response from his audience, particularly in live performance. The band members excel in virtuoso improvisation independently and collectively, with drummer Gil Walters injecting supernatural polyrhythmic percussion! The band is currently recording tracks for the soon to be released and highly anticipated album "NOMAD."....................................>............................................................................ ........................................................................................................................................................................................ ................................................................................................ ......The Rhythm Handlers are,thus far,the world's best kept rock and roll secret: this is clear to everyone who has seen them perform live;they consist of what many believe to be the world's greatest guitarist since Jimi Hendrix/best singer since Elvis Presley,(Mike Numera:guitar/voice)coupled with a supernaturally gifted,polyrhythmic percussionist(Gil Walters:drums/percussion)who was hand-picked by no less a personage than Ray Charles to record tracks for one of his many albums!...Mike and Gil were initially accompanied by the Rick Rubin produced/former "Def" American recording artist refugee Ben Pape on bass(from the original ill fated rock legends-"The Four Horsemen")-who has now been replaced by the Victor Wooten inspired,Anthony Wellington taught 20 year old bass virtuoso Adair Howie.The Rhythm Handlers have carved out a sizeable reputation as world class musicians and are often rumored to be the world's greatest unknown rock and roll band.Their as yet unreleased all original album "Nomad" has been touted by their fans/musical peers/friends and those "in the know" to be the greatest unreleased studio album in rock and roll history,and has been eagerly anticipated-although never completed to date.The Rhythm Handlers are now finally rehearsing and planning to record this unfinished opus which has been referred to by the group's frontman as:"a cross between Jimi Hendrix' epic "First Rays of the New Rising Sun" and the mighty Led Zeppelin's "Physical Graffiti"-with a little Ravel and Lightnin' Slim,Puccini and Wynonie Harris thrown in for good measure!"....stay tuned for The Rhythm Handlers' impending rock and roll revolution....
