Recognized in the 2022, 2019 and 2017 DownBeat Critics’ Poll for ‘Rising Star – Guitar’, the quirky and unpredictable guitarist-composer-bandleader is found here leading his much-lauded quintet of equally deft collaborators.

The evening also features a high-energy opening set by an all-star ensemble from the Longy School of Music, where Mr. Hofbauer is the chair of the Jazz and Contempory Music Department.

"His aesthetic evokes old blues, Americana, Tin Pan Alley, bebop, and further frontiers. There’s a rule-breaking spirit but also an impeccable rigor, a foundation of sheer chops and knowledge that put Hofbauer in the top tier of guitarists."

–David R Adler
