Hoppie is well known in Roanoke, his home turf. He regularly plays at Blues 5 as well as other nightspots. But he’s no stranger to Floyd audiences, playing at Pine Tavern and at the Art Center in past years. Hoppie has played in many states, with many bands since he first formed a band in South Carolina at the age of 14 (they were known as The Horseheads). Since that time, he’s played the club circuit throughout the Southeast US, playing with such notables as Rod Price (of Foghat), Mac Gayden, Tommy Two Tone, Wet Willie, Ronnie Milsap, Goose Creek Symphony, and many others. He finally landed in Roanoke in 1996. Over the last 10 years, he’s been involved with several bands producing 4 CDs, including Hoppie Vaughan & The Ministers of Soul Work and Meansville Road.
