Hoodang is David Rossiter, Sophia Hanifi, and Dave Keeney. For nearly two decades, Hoodang has been mesmerizing audiences with its unique blend of dark, driving, off-kilter alt-country music. The band writes songs, often in the first-person, of people tarnished by bad blood and bad luck who still find ways to make it through to the next town, day, marriage, con, or bottle. Blending a driving, fingerstyle rhythm guitar sound with a thrumming bass, chiming electric guitar, hammer down percussion, and soaring vocal harmonies, onstage Hoodang’s comfort zone has been a spontaneous, careening edge that plays off the moment, the mood, and the room.
