The Out Cold Band is not your typical bar band, we primarily play special events and festivals. We have played at the Bixby BBQ Festival, numerous Route 66 Marathons and private events at the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame, Stokely Event Center and other venues.



The “Out Cold” Band is a unique group of six guys that have a shared passion for rock, blues and country music. The band is comprised of a Fortune 500 CEO, Lawyer, Chiropractor, Engineer, Electronic Sales and Building Management professionals. What was originally a couple of guys jamming each week has now turned into a full band that loves to perform. Most of the band members played in various rock bands in their teen years and now have resurrected their musical talent. Our band loves to cover energetic Rock and Blues tunes that will definitely get the audience dancing and singing along.

RON HOFFMAN – Harmonica, Congas & Vocals
I remember growing up with my Dad and his brothers playing lots of music on Grandma’s back porch in Collinsville, Oklahoma. I was too busy being a kid to take up music even though I loved all the great rock and roll music of the era. A few years ago, I decided that I wanted to be a musician and took up the harmonica. I spent lots of hours blowing ugly notes and teaching myself the craft. In 2010, I attended the Jon Gindick Harmonica Camp in Clarksdale, Mississippi to learn the Delta blues. I now have a true passion for the Harmonica and it’s a “real hoot” being in a band.

CRAIG DAY – Guitar & Vocals
I grew up in Abilene, Texas listening to Bob Wills and all the great Texas swing music. I got my first guitar when I was 12 years old and have been playing off and on since. As a teenager, raised in the “Beatles” era, music became a passion and I joined a rock and roll band in high school. I continue to be a practicing Chiropractor and have had a clinic in the Tulsa area for over 30 years. Bass fishing on a quiet morning is one of my great hobbies, but being in a band again is “way too cool”.

I started playing an acoustic guitar in the 5th grade with a bunch of my neighborhood buddies. It was the psychedelic era and our band name was “The Purple Orange Peel” . I’ve taken a lot grief over that most of my life! I went on to play in country, hard rock, and blues bands through college, usually with one or more of the neighborhood kids in the band. I have made my career in semiconductor sales and that is what brought me to Tulsa in ’87. Playing in Out Cold is a lot of fun, but I don’t think I’ll give up my day job just yet.

Growing up in Tulsa, in the sixties, we always had a guitar around the house to pick on and make music. In 1964, like many teens, I was bitten by the Beatles bug and started playing drums. I even played the snare and timpani in the school band. Eventually, I sat in with several local garage bands until college and beyond changed my priorities. Throughout my life, I never really lost the desire to make music. As my children grew up, graduated from college, got married, and “off my payroll”, I decided to wrap my arms around the bass guitar and have some fun. It has been an epic journey for me. For the past few years, I have been playing bass in restaurant gigs with a great country picker, Robert Smith. I love the simplicity of classic country music, but I was very pleased when the Out Cold Band invited me to “lay down a bottom” for their driving, bluesy, rock and roll music. It’s a lot of fun with some great guys and we’re having a ball.

I started playing drums in marching band at Will Rogers High School and joined the orchestra the last two years of high school. I joined a band with three high school friends and we called it the “Ramrods”. We played around town at the VFW, the American Legion and other birthday gigs to get extra money for our other hobby, cars. We changed our name to the “Artist” for awhile, adding other friends and when it broke up we were left with a piano player, base guitar and drums and called ourselves the “Richmond trio”. After high school, the band broke up and we all went out to take on the real world. Life has come full circle and now I’m back in a band renewing my love of “beating on the skins”.

TERRY WATT – Keyboard
I started taking piano and organ lessons when I was in the third grade and continued until I graduated from Edison High School. My parents’ sole intent was that my sister and I learn to play for church services, which I did for many years. I put together my first rock “band” in about 1964 by recruiting my cousin to learn to play “Wipeout” by the Surfaris with me: him on a cheap guitar and me on an out-of-tune piano. Sweet music! Growing up, my influences were primarily Jerry Lee Lewis and Leon Russell. My first real band was a jazz trio that made its debut at the Harvard Club in the mid-1980s. I’ve played solo piano gigs, played for another of my cousins in his Elvis tribute act, did a brief stint with a country band, and played with a few classic rock and blues cover bands. There is nothing that is more fun than seeing people get up and dance in response to your music!
