A leading force in the cigar box movement and world wide retailer, Hobo King is as committed to keeping tradition alive as they are breaking current ideologies of what guitars and music are truly about. The Hobo King "Standard" cigar box guitar is so simple and traditional in its build, it often leads the unacquainted to ask "Is it playable?" Artists, including multi-platinum Grammy award winning producer and guitarist Pete Anderson, as well as Pinecone Fletcher, CEO of Hobo King, and one of the most respected cigar box players in the world, can answer unequivocally, "Yes!"

After just a few short months together, people are taking notice of their original music and frest take on a few classics. The band may be new, but it is comprised of road worthy veterans. On Rhythm guitar and vocals, Randy Miritello comes from a background of old-time and country music. In his other music venture, Horseshoe Lounge Playboys, he has toured the country and shared the stage with Levon Helm, Steve Earle, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, The Felice Brothers and many more. This project is a way to showcase his songwriting in a different vein. Edward Michaels is the man in the back, keeping it all where it needs to be, writing songs, drumming and singing. He is a world-class drummer that has toured the world with acts such as Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen, Alvin Youngblood Hart, Roy Rogers, Chicken Coupe Deville, Grammy nominee Aaron White and many more. You can hear his original tunes not only with Hop City, but on Sirius XM's Bluesville station where his original tune, "Keep the Wolf from my Door", done with Jason Ricci and New Blood, was a click to hit pick. The twang and twin reverb in the band is provided by Jim Foote on lead guitar. He is a veteran of the blues and has plaed with bands since he was just a wee lad. He plays with the mind blowing Soco Mojo Band when not with Hop City.
