Eric Hoffman was born 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 (in his own right), and practiced Organ on the Lowery 88 in their musical home. Soon he joined both Grandparents 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, Terry Gibbs, Charo & more. While backing up the Jerry Lewis Show, he was encouraged by Mr. Lewis' conductor Lou Brown to put together an act as a Singing Trombone player. Next stop? New York!
