PROFILE: Meg Hoffman

Meg Hoffman is a two-timer, in love with art and music.  Her first experience playing with a band was when she tried out for the Abbie Hoffman Society.  She now loves to sing, play melodica, tambourine and drums and can’t wait to get on stage.  When not playing with the Hoffmans or Powell River Punk Rock Choir, Meg spends her days working on dance moves and making art under the moniker “Meghan Hildebrand”.  Grown in Whitehorse and schooled in Nelson and Halifax, Meg came to Powell River in 2004 on honeymoon and never left.

The Hoffmans Record FULL-LENGTH

That’s right, a solid half-hour of Hoffman magic went on record at the Music Room in Powell River during the summer and fall of 2013.  The atmosphere was sparkling and the talent was noticeable, and the tracks are GOLDEN, we promise. The Hoffmans are currently working out the artwork and are counting on a December release!  To coincide with yet-to-be-confirmed super-star gigs on the Big Island opening for a certain super-group covering songs by another super-star group!  Stay tuned!!
