Finding Jimmy Hoffa and Bret Michaels

Bonjour from Campagne Maison



Bret Michaels 2010 'Custom Built Tour' continues to break attendance records, selling out cities from coast to coast all across America. The concert tour is in extremely high demand, with shows selling out in a matter of minutes after going on sale. Bret Michaels' Custom Built Tour recently played to a record setting crowd of 70,000+ people in Boise, ID.

NEW tour dates have been added for cities in Arkansas, Washington State, Mississippi, Texas & back to back nights in Minnesota.

Headlining for Bret's September 16th show in Fayetteville, AR will be this group, Finding Jimmy Hoffa...

Shawn Hoffa, James Hoffa, Jeremey Hoffa, Joey Hoffa, Chet Hoffa, Jason Hoffa

Named the "Godfathers of Southern Grunge" by a local entertainment firm and their fan base, Finding Jimmy Hoffa is well known in their community for combining many hard rock influences ranging from Clutch to Deftones, with deep roots in southern soil, creating their unique musical style. In their infancy, Finding Jimmy Hoffa was asked to perform the following summer at the Osceola Music Festival in their hometown of Osceola, AR, where they opened for Black Oak Arkansas, Jim Dandy, and Buddy Jewel to a large enthusiastic audience.


This kind of response to their original sound gave the band inspiration to record a self produced 5-song EP titled “What Would You Do” which was recorded at Dream Maker Productions. Later that year, the band was on a local radio program when they caught the ears of Massey Records President David Vanlandingham. Soon after, Finding Jimmy Hoffa was a member of Massey Records and in the studio recording their upcoming album “Southern Hospitality”. Produced by Mike Bailey, Finding Jimmy Hoffa was able to create a hard rock southern grunge feel that they felt captured their sound. "Southern Hospitality" is now available online and selected store.




These boys love their music and have worked for years developing their own unique style. I am proud to be the mother of Jeremey, an original Mississippi County Mafia band member.



Thanks for stopping by the farmhouse for a visit today. We love having company.

Au revoir,
