an acoustic duo with dynamic sound


The Hooch was formed in 2013 when its members, Jemar Phoenix and Mike D, were introduced to each other during a “live music” Open Mic event in New Haven, CT. What began as a simple "Hey, can you play percussion during this set?" eventually morphed into a brotherly chemistry syncopated like no other. Since then, The Hooch has been ascending, playing venues throughout the Metro Northeast, and impressing their audiences with their dynamic sound.
