Marlon Hoffman Band Recording New Material, Performing at Earth Day 2022, Calabasas, Calif. Sat, April 16, 2-4pm

“(Marlon) Hoffman is the embodiment of Americana music…unique in every way…. an Ambassador of Americana music. To borrow an overused phrase, a throwback to the Sixties. His heartfelt music is a breath of fresh air.” – BLUES HIGHWAY


Marlon Hoffman multi-faceted, Southern California-based singer/songwriter/guitarist, performs locally with his Marlon Hoffman Band at Earth Day Festival 2022,  Las Virgenes Creek and Agoura Rd., Saturday, April 16, from 2-4pm. Free. Info: (818) 224-1600 or visit In addition to Hoffman, MHB are John O’Kennedy (guitar); Jody Daly (bass); and Jon Poli (drums). 

Look for a new Marlon Hoffman Band album this Spring/Summer, with guest contributions by some interesting musical accomplices including Davey Johnstone (Elton John) and Bernard Fowler (Rolling Stones), both of whom have recently recorded in Hoffman’s Calabasas-based Kenrose Studios. “Bernard will be directing vocal production and Davey will be contributing guitar tracks as well having eyes and ears on my project. I’m in good hands, to say the least,” confirms Hoffman. 

The present moment is wonderful,” Hoffman adds, as he sits behind the sound board at his studio in Calabasas, Calif. “Two new friends I’ve bonded with are Bernard Fowler (Rolling Stones’ touring vocalist for many years) and Davey Johnstone (long-time Elton John collaborator). Bernard and I are in textual touch and he has made me promise he could oversee the vocal production for my next album, while Davey will be a guest guitarist on a number of the tunes and he generously has been keeping his ears open to the album’s beginning. Bernard will be directing vocal production and Davey will be contributing guitar tracks as well having eyes and ears on my project. I’m in good hands, to say the least.”

Hoffman has eleven full-length concerts posted to, where, incidentally, Hoffman first met both the aforementioned Fowler and Johnstone. His current incarnation of the Marlon Hoffman Band, he says, “is stellar….all-pro and the energy and cacophony we’ve created is intoxicating. I’m a satisfied man. The lineup: John O’Kennedy on Guitar and other strings; Jody Daley-Lovett on Bass; Jon Poli on Drums; John Harjo on Piano; Martin Flores on Percussion; and Jessica Garcia, Angel Levine and Kimzey McGrath on Background Vocals.” The MHB has performed at, among other venues, the Saban, The Canyon Club and some local (LA) festivals, in addition to sharing the stage with the likes of Johnny Rivers, Ambrosia and The Guess Who.
