Michael Hoffman was a bartender at the Traffic Jam in the early 70's. He ended up becoming the executive chef at a famous hotel in Palm Beach. I decided to try to reach him in 1990 and called the hotel looking for him. I was put on hold and a few moments later was informed that he had died the day before in a scuba diving accident.
He lived on Delaware with Art Roy and Dan Cicchelli and played drums with Dan for awhile. I'm sure that there are some who will remember Michael as part of the cass corridor days.

I met Michael Hoffman when I waited tables at the Traffic Jam in 1974. We dated briefly, then he moved away and I lost touch with him. Tony Williams told me of his death years later one night at Alvin's. We sadly toasted to his memory.

I also worked at TJ's but I believe that I probably had gone by the time you started. Michael and Dan lived in a house on Delaware for a short time. Art Roy was there too.
Michael's death was untimely for sure. Much too young.
Even now with Tony's passing it just all seems too soon. best wishes to you and Daniel.
