John Hinchey, trombone

John Hinchey trombonist and arranger: He just might be the tallest guy in the band. His musical misadventures as an arranger, music director and trombonist have taken him literally all over the world, heck he’s even slept (and recorded) in Abbey Road Studio 2 in London.

His touring credits include Martina McBride, Kirk Franklin, A Chorus Line and Bob Fosse’s Dancin’.

He’s played in the house band for shows including CMA Awards, Americana Music Awards, The Stella Awards, Musician’s Hall of Fame induction, Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame American Master’s Concert, The TV show “Nashville” and more. He’s arranged more cruise ship shows then he’d care to admit and for artists including, Martina McBride, Dave Stewart, Sting, Lee Ann Womack, Marcus Scott, Nick D’Virgilio, Big Big Train, the Broadway show “Rocktopia”, Scooby Doo, The Smurfs and Yogi Bear.

Seriously, as an arranger, the guy has no shame. He once was hired to compose a ten minute piece to be performed only on “items you find in a kitchen” ie: trash cans, cutlery, wine bottles, cabinet doors, etc even the kitchen sink all to accompany 10 Irish step dancers.
