Consisting of members of several prominent regional acts, including G.B. Leighton and Molly & the Haymakers, who had also been involved in session work, the Minneapolis-St. Paul quintet Hillbilly Voodoo Dolls took their name as a fitting description of their blend of rockabilly, blues, New Orleans-styled R&B, and zydeco. Jam sessions involving the members, bassist Paul Manske, guitarist Paul Bergen, keyboardist Tom Coursolle, and drummer Tony Kamena, led to the formation of a more permanent entity. Since their inception, the band has proven to be a popular live act and shared the stage with notable artists such as Los Lobos' Cesar Rosas, Paul Cebar & the Milwaukeeans, and the Derailers. Among their recordings are Hubba Hubba, and Rhythm Disease.
