Hoagy de la Plante began his love for music in the second grade the very first time he heard Elvis Presley sing “You Ain’t Noth’n But A Hound Dog”. It took him two more years to convince his dad to take him to Brownie’s Pawn shop in downtown Buffalo and split the cost of his first brand new $14.00 Stella guitar.
By 13 years old he joined his first band. In the early 1990’s he formed Hoagy and the Blues Bombers. Over the years a variety of great players helped hone the Blues Bombers unique up-town sound.
