ABOUT

Seeking a band to join or other musicians to Jam or gig with. I also perform acoustic Solo gigs.

I'm not afraid of this virus and I'll play any place any time. If we wait for the virus to end, live music will die. Acoustic sets or with your band. Covers as well as original music. Contact me for more info, let's rock!

I was diagnosed with stage 4 throat cancer Sept. 2012 and thought playing music was over. I completed chemo & radiation treatments Jan. 2013. I've been in remission over 7 years. My voice is strong as ever. I'm looking for like minded people to jam with or join an existing band or project, etc. I can sing lead and have plenty of stage experience or I can sing back up (harmonize) and play acoustic guitar, drums, harmonica, or cow bell (lol), etc. I can write, sing, play Rhythm Guitar, moderate drummer, novice piano and keys. I have booking experience I'm a BMI Member. I'm a laid back guy that enjoys music with no vices.

BIO: I was born and raised in South Arkansas in the 1970's. I was inspired by various music of the times and the music being played in the area such as Blues from the delta, country, southern rock and classic rock were just some my influences. I have a passion for writing songs and later in life while working full time I started playing solo acoustic sets in various bars, clubs, private events, coffee houses, etc sometimes with a band and made a few dollars. I've performed some descent gig's out of state. In March 2007 I performed on ABC's "The Next Best Thing" as a Hank Williams Jr. Impersonator. That same year I recorded an acoustic album of original songs at a small back yard studio and sold some tunes on the net through iTunes, etc. I won KSSN Radio's "Home Grown Artist" of the week in Feb. 2009 and they played some of my songs on their "Home Grown Country Show" a few times. I was Runner Up in a jingle contest for Turtle Wax in 2009.
NOTE: ALL ORIGINAL SONGS ON THE MUSIC PLAYER WERE WRITTEN & PERFORMED BY K.W. Hoffman (Home Recordings)
