Bobby Jr. Hackney (At right, with Rough Francis in Montreal, Quebec, at the L'Esco, 2015)


American musician known as the vocalist and percussionist with Rough Francis, a rock band from Burlington, Vermont formed by him and his two brothers, Julian and Urian Hackney, along with their friend Dan Davine. The Hackney brothers originally formed the group in 2008 to pay tribute to the music of their father Bobby Hackney and their uncles' early 1970s proto-punk band Death.

After a few tribute shows, the group began to write and record their own music. The loud screams and maximum volume of Rough Francis still echoes Death—but they also manage to crystallize a unique sound of their own, channeling live energy from '60s garage rock, Motown and '80s Hardcore.

Their releases include Introducing Rough Francis (4-song EP, 2010), Maximum Soul Power (8-song LP/cassette/CD/digital download, 2014), MSP3: Counter Attack (8-song LP, 2018) and Urgent Care (8-song LP, 2020).
