Howard and Hal have been playing music together for a long, long time. They are survivors of two of Ann Arbor’s most popular late night party bands from the 70’s. Now performing duets, sometimes as the QBtrio with George Eberhardt on drums, and sometimes with HiDef.
HiDef launched in 2005. We produced two CD’s and have enjoyed playing at some of Ann Arbor’s finest venues, including Top of the Park, Ann Arbor Summer Festival, the Firefly Club, Goodnight Gracie’s, Sonic Lunch, The Quarter Bistro, and the Michigan Theater. We have some really cool fans.
