Alex has been a full-time musician in the Chicagoland area for seven years now and in that time he has been building a loyal following as well as a catalog of original music. Alex has played in the greater MidWest area and just about everywhere else you can imagine in this country. A fusion of Blues, Funk, Rock and Americana bordering on Prog Rock, the sound is unmistakable.

Progressive Folk meets Blue Collar Rock recently did a piece on Alex Hoffer and Friends at Two Brother's Roundhouse in Aurora, IL on Saturday, 10/5/13. Here's a bit of what they said.

  "Then Alex moving everyone with his soulful voice and his unique style of guitar picking left me amazed.  I also have never seen such a beg from the crowd for more as the night came to a close.  The venue had no choice but to let them play more."
