Troy, NY: Kenny Hohman picked up the guitar as a boy after hearing Eddie Van Halen’s mind-bending tracks on the early Van Halen records. Joe Daley’s two older brothers were already established musicians, so when Joe was a teenager, he cut his teeth playing the drums with them at dingy clubs and blues joints in and around Troy. After high school, Joe and Kenny moved to New York City, then Woodstock, in the hopes of finding the right bass player and establishing a Rock and Roll band. Their travels left them unsatisfied and Hohman and Daley returned home, where on a Monday night blues jam, they unexpectedly met bassist Lori Friday. Friday grew up in a one-stoplight town, subsisted on the heavy rock and soul sounds of her heroes and was searching for her musical match. The three made a date to jam in a Troy warehouse, and after 45 minutes, Super 400 was born. They didn’t need to speak of it – they were a band from the first note.
Tours both in the US and abroad started a chain of bootleg recordings that have been traded and coveted around the world. Their international following sold out over 20 shows across Europe on their last tour. Back home, the mayor of Troy gave Super 400 their own official holiday, ‘Super 400 Day’, to recognize the band’s musical achievements as well as the love and support the city has shown for them. Super 400 recorded their most recent full-length, ‘Sweet Fist’, at legendary Ardent Studios in Memphis, TN, and followed the release with their biggest US tour to date. They’ve appeared on national television in the US and abroad, written music for top-rated shows on American television, and continue to light stages with their love and intense passion for playing. The COVID pandemic prompted a fortification of the home studio, where the band has been writing, recording, mixing, making art, and launching these efforts to their online audience as well as planning full-length releases in 2022.
