Nice gathering of folks at Baxter's in Champaign on Thursday - thanks for coming out! Kristen Johns caught us jamming on Jeff Lorber's Toad's Place, and posted it on Champaign Underground Video. We hope you enjoy it, and that you will become a fan of her wonderful page. The trio will be back there on Nov.1, and at Peoria's Rhythm Kitchen on Nov. 30. See you soon!

Kevin Hart's "Beer Fest" Band! 🎷🎺🎹🎸🥁 Sometimes the Vibe Tribe is just not possible, so I'm forced to change things up, as I did for the recent 2017 Medici Craft Beer and Jazz Street Fair in Normal. Afterward, I thought it would be fun to bring this configuration elsewhere. So, on Friday August 18, we will play in Peoria at the Rhythm Kitchen Music Cafe from 7-10pm! Mark your calendars, and come join the fun.

Beautiful night, and wonderful turnout for David Hoffman & Friends. If you enjoyed David's original music, then look for his recordings online for download, ordering, or streaming. Try "Groovin,'" which includes Mike Nellas on guitar, Tim Brickner on bass, Doug Stone on sax, and myself on drums. Photo by Ralph Weisheit.
