Bob Hoffnar focuses his musicianship on playing steel guitar, performing, composing, recording and touring both solo and in collaboration, and appearing as a guest in various bands. His unique improvisational approach to pedalsteel explores the parameters of popular song, blurring distinctions between genres in unexpected ways. (bobhoffnar.net)
Joeseph Sabella plays vibes, marimba, wavedrum, and ipad – in lieu of traditional drums, and mostly in the service of electronic music. He plays together with J.A. Deane as the DJ Duo and in Deane’s improvisational orchestra, Out of Context, spending a good part of his remaining time cooking.
