The Detroit Lakes VFW stage was packed with Hanks family members Saturday night.

Not only was it a time for the Hanks Band to get back together, but it was a chance for first cousins Romyn Hanks and Bud McGregor to also take the stage.


Hanks and McGregor are active musicians who play with bands, and both tried out for "Nashville Star" and won the eastern (Hanks) and western (McGregor) regional finals.
