The Don Hoffman Band was formed in December of 2011 after Don, Greg and Craig hit the stage together at a Thursday night jam at the Longswamp Tavern.
The three "amigos" of DHB have all been a part of the Lehigh Valley music scene at one time or another in their lives, and they've known each other for a couple of decades, all playing in different projects and differing genres of music.
After the the flame was lit in December, Don, Greg and Craig realized that the chemistry was right and the formation of the Don Hoffman Band was a done deal.
In 2103, keyboardist extraordinaire, Dennis Wieand, joined DHB. Dennis and his Hammond SK-1 and Leslie cabinets have added a whole new dimension to the sound of DHB.
Since December they've hit the ground running, assembling a set list that includes plenty of original tunes and covering the likes of Howlin' Wolf, Eric Clapton and Cream, SRV, Creedence Clearwater Rivival, Freddie King, the Allman Brothers, U2, and a host of classic blues and rock standards. They hit the studio in the spring of 2012 to record a demo of the five originals that you can hear on this page, and have been playing out at local venues including their birthplace, the Longswamp Tavern, Stefano's Sicilian Grille, Grumpy's Bar-B-Que Roadhouse, Big Daddy's Wagon Wheel, the Pub on Main in Macungie, and the Raven's Nest to name a few. They threw their hat into the ring at the Lehigh River Blues Jam's International Blues Challenge in 2012 and 2013 and they'll be an up and coming blues trio to watch in the Lehigh Valley and a great addition to the already great LV blues music scene.
Please check back often for updated information on the band, dates that DHB will be performing, new songs added to the playlist, new photos and videos or performances.
