Hoffman Road Band with Douglas & the Iron Lung

Pittsburgh band Hoffman Road Band formed one warm summer evening around a fire and a yard full of empty cans. Their folk sound adds rock and country, with some reggae and punk thrown in for fun. The band consists of Brandon Sensor on lead guitar, Dave Samuelson on harmonica and bass, Tanya McAndrew on rhythm guitar and washboard, Jason Wright on mandolin and Jerry Tongue on drums.

When asked if lead singer Brandon Sensor's voice sounded like an angel, Dave Samuelson after a little thought replied, "No...more like an angel wiping it's butt with sandpaper."

HRB has performed in Pittsburgh and on the Eastern beaches of Florida, and is currently working on their first album, "1000 Miles to Paydirt".
