Eric Hoffman born and raised in Flint Michigan, the son of a high school wrestling coach and a hairdresser. At age five, he caught "the Danny Thomas Show" in Lake Tahoe, and well you can just imagine the rest. But in case you can't, here are some highlights: Eric took after his grandfather, a fine baritone, autoworker, and farmer, practiced Organ on the Lowery 88 in their musical home and soon joined both GPs in the church choir. CUT TO: Eric in the Caribbean, a staff trombone player for several cruise lines--sideman to Jack Jones, The Spinners, Vic Damone, Steve Allen, Charo & more. While backing up the Jerry Lewis Show, he was encouraged by Mr. Lewis' conductor Lou Brown to begin singing solo. Next stop? New York! where Eric has been a member of Supersound, legendary Jazz Drummer Charli Persip's (Dizzy Gillespe ”50’s” & Billy Eckstine”70’s”),big band. Eric now holds the honor of being the only male singer to record with Charli as a Bandleader. He also has formed his own group "Eric Hoffman & the Underdog", featuring an all Trombone horn section.
