Marc Hoffman Trio To Perform For Final "Friday Night Out"
(Published: October 03, 2010)


October 3, 2010 (SALISBURY, NC) - The Marc Hoffman Trio, led by composer/recording artist Marc Hoffman, will perform for the last Friday Night Out family festival in downtown Salisbury this year on Friday, October 8, from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

With Terry Peoples on bass and Chris Garges on drums, the trio will serve up many songs from Hoffman's new all-original jazz CD, Curioso, as well as other jazz and pop favorites.

This show follows Hoffman's performance on October 1 at the City Club of Rock Hill during the sixth annual Old Time Blues & Jazz Festival in Rock Hill, SC.

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.

Friday Night Out is a free family event featuring music, food, free trolley rides, the Ghost Walk and other entertainment, as well as late-night shopping throughout downtown Salisbury. Fun for kids includes inflatables, face painting, and more.

Downtown Salisbury, Inc., sponsors Friday Night Out events each first Friday from April through October. "Many thanks to Betz McKeown and Downtown Salisbury for asking us back this year," Hoffman said.
