Marc Hoffman To Headline 2010 Blues & Jazz Event
(Published: September 22, 2010)


September 22, 2010 (ROCK HILL, SC) - To promote his new CD Curioso, jazz composer/musician Marc Hoffman will perform a number of all-original tunes from the CD at the City Club of Rock Hill on Saturday, October 1, from 7 to 11 p.m. as part of Rock Hill's 6th Annual Old Town Blues & Jazz Festival.

The City Club of Rock Hill is located at 140 Main Street in downtown Rock Hill, SC.

For this performance, Hoffman will be joined by Chris Garges on drums, Dave Vergato on bass, Chris Jones on guitar and Carrie Marshall on vocals.

Curioso features several tracks that were inspired by other jazz musician's work. "Hefti" channels the light, lyrical work of Hoffman's former composition professor, the late Neal Hefti. "Pontified" is Hoffman's take on the late ‘70s music of Jean-Luc Ponty. "Introspective" is reminiscent of David Benoit's smooth jazz. And Vince Guaraldi's influence is apparent on the title tune, "Curioso."

Virillion Music released the CD this summer. Tracks can be heard on Marc Hoffman's website, www.marchoffman.com, and at CDBaby, Amazon, and iTunes.

Hoffman's upcoming gig follows recent performances at the Matthews Alive Festival in Matthews, NC, and for the "Tickling The Ivories" all-piano music concert at the Ashe County Performing Arts Center in Jefferson, NC.

Now in its sixth year, the Old Town Blues & Jazz Festival draws thousands of people from York County and throughout the southeast, showcasing some of the best blues and jazz entertainment in the region. Presented by the Arts Council of York County, the festival runs from September 30 and runs through October 2. For information on all the performances and to purchase tickets online, visit www.yorkcountyarts.org.
