New Book On the Way: “Jalopy Bands”

My new book of drawings is proofed and ordered. It should be available for sale in about a week. The title is “Ukulelechicken Sketchbook: Jalopy Bands.”
Book cover, front and back, "Jalopy Bands" by Robin Hoffman
This book features only drawings of bands, drawn live on location at the Jalopy Theatre over the past year.

Bands featured include:
The Dust Busters
The Little Brothers
Radio Jarocho
M. Shanghai String Band
The Calamity Janes
The Brotherhood of the Jug Band Blues
Jessy Carolina and the Hot Mess
Kelli Rae Powell
The Maybelles
Veveritse Brass Band
Sweet Soubrette
The Ukuladies
The Sweetback Sisters

I had a good time going through all my drawings of these bands and choosing my favorites.

“Jalopy Bands” will be available at the Jalopy Theatre (315 Columbia Street, Red Hook, Brooklyn) and from me directly. The price will be $20. It’s the perfect little holiday gift for your music-loving friends and family!

With a casual sense of humor, Bobby included some history and translation of the songs from the Greek underworld of the 1930′s that he plays. This music was actually illegal in its time.
