Artist Profile
David Hoffman is a freelance musician in Illinois and since 1991 has been the trumpet and Flugelhorn soloist with The Ray Charles Orchestra. He has also contributed several compositions and arrangements to the band library. During his stint with Ray, Dave has played extensively in Europe, North and South America, Asia and Rays first ever trip to Russia in July of 1994.

Dave has appeared on television in France, Italy, Japan, Germany and Russia. In the United States, he has appeared on The Tonight Show, Live At Newport on PBS, Merv Griffin's New Years Eve Celebration, and the Fox Television special titled, "Ray Charles, 50 Years of Music," where he backed up Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight, Michael McDonald, Randy Travis, Michael Bolten and Willie Nelson. He has appeared at many Jazz festivals including Newport, JVC, Playboy, Nice, Boston Globe, London, and Montreaux.

He now spends his time composing, performing, and lecturing. He spends his living moments between San Diego and a little converted church amongst a thousand acres of Pumpkins in Illinois. He also likes the sound of train whistles that flow from a nearby cornfield.
