Pete Hofmann and the Measured Doses / Bio

*family man, happy
*teacher, good gig
*play a wide variety of music and have lots of interest outside of music such as science, cannot stick to one rut
*been making music for 25+ years, not a kid anymore

I started playing in neighborhood bars and bowling alleys when I was 16. From 1990-92, I played guitar and sang a little for the power-pop tro The Pigeonholes. The band included my long-time drummer, Izzy. Paul Novak (Betty Drake, the Pendrakes) was the main writer and singer. We played some in MN and IA. When that band ended, I spent the next 6 years writing, recording and occasionally performing solo.

In 1998 I began self-releasing my music and began touring MN, IA, IL, CA, RI, Canada, and WI with a backing band. Steve Isadore has played drums at almost every show. Backing band members that have come and gone through the years are:

Jim Vallet (HeadCandy)

Brien Lilja (Draghounds, Slim Dunlap, RankStrangers)

Andy Schultz (Beatifics, Betty Drake, Ol' Yeller)

Mike Leonard (the Red Flags, Blame, The Bleeding Hearts)
