Rockin’ with John Hunter

Among the various talents that our specwriter John Hunter possesses is the ability to jam with his boys on the banjo. John’s sons, Alex and Hugh, make up two-thirds of the local band Hoptown. Along with their lead singer, Roy Elders, Alex handles percussion while Hugh tackles the bass. Last Monday night Hoptown was the headliner at Finnegan’s in Novato, wich included a special guest performance by our very own John Hunter on banjo. John’s pickin’ skills provided a wonderful complimentary layer to  Hoptown’s eclectic style. If you are interested in seeing Hoptown perform (possibly with another guest appearance by JH?), they will be playing at the Black Rose in Santa Rosa on Armory Drive in the near future ( For more information on the Hoptown sound, check out their website at
