Jennye’s first experience drumming in an all girl band was in 1986 in Victoria BC when she was 15. The band had two practices and their only song was These Boots are Made for Walking. Jennye was in a Noise duo called Froghat and Sofaqueen for a few years and she is part of the The Show Business Giants alumni. One time, she was in a band and their only song was about the guitar player’s childhood pet chicken.
Nowadays, she resides with her family in Powell River. As well as The Hoffmans, Jennye plays in Smoke Machine (a drums and guitar duo with her husband, Craig) and Godzballz (Powell River’s on-again-off-again glam rock collective), Jennye also directs the Powell River Women’s Punk Rock Choir and hosts the occasional gig in her basement.
