Jim Hoehn: Home
Jim Hoehn is a Milwaukee-based journalist/author/songwriter who has carved out a surprisingly successful niche as a performing songwriter since first stumbling out of the pressbox with a guitar.
As a career journalist - much of it spent as a sportswriter - Hoehn has covered everything from plane crashes to murder trials to the Super Bowl and the Hong Kong 7s rugby tournament. As a source of family editorial pride, he's also the guy who broke the Jeffrey Dahmer story for the National Enquirer.
His latest recording project, "Silhouette of a Fool," includes 10 original songs brought to life under the production guidance of Milwaukee's John Sieger. (Shepherd Express review)

Pardi-Gras, New Orleans
"Singers, Sinners & Saints" - Jan. 15-18, 2015
From a purely selfish standpoint, there is absolutely no better way to start the musical new year than a gig at Pardi-Gras. The 2015 version, "Singers, Sinners & Saints," includes the Boat Drunks, Southern Drawl Band, Jimmy & the Parrots and, of course, Jerry Diaz & Hanna's Reef, along with numerous fantastic solo performers. I will be playing Friday, Jan. 16 at 4:30 pm at The Tropical Isle, once again greeting the Pub Crawl survivors. Click here for registration information.
Back in the pressbox !!!
After all these years, I still enjoy sitting in a pressbox or courtside. I was extremely fortunate to be back in the pressbox at Miller Park last summer, covering the Brewers for AP, MLB.com and other outlets. Then, it rolled into the fall sports season, including several Packers games at Lambeau Field, the Wisconsin Badgers at Camp Randall and high school games under those Friday Night Lights. Now it's courtside for the Bucks, Badgers, Marquette and high schools. As I said, I still like doing this. Or, as Paul Simon said, "Still crazy after all these years." Here's a link to the majority of my stories for AP.
