Guymon Ensley Hoggatt

If River Rouge, Michigan native Guymon Ensley Hoggatt had his way, he would have had a trumpet stuck in his "jibs" even before he was born. However, Henry Ford Hospital didn't offer music lessons with prenatal care at the time, neither did Northrup Elementary School . . . not until the fourth grade anyway. The trumpet was his instrument of choice even earlier, when his parents Lloyd and Gertrude Hoggatt bought him his first toy trumpet, clad in a thin cardboard carrying case which he proudly carried with him on the first day to school after Christmas vacation was over. The other boys brought toy cap guns and monster robots and the like. It seems that music was always going to be Guy’s career choice even when he was a student at River Rouge High School

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
