The Alphabeticians

The Alphabeticians are a Portland, OR based duo who create fun, clever music for kids and families. Take some silly, mix in some witty and clever, add in some sweet hooks, and you've got The Alphabeticians.

Mr. E (Eric Levine) and Mr. Hoo (Jeff Inlay) have been friends and musical partners for over 25 years, and it shows in their on-stage banter and camaraderie. They've been performing as The Alphabeticians since 2010, and in that time have played 100s of shows, released one CD, and gained plenty of accolades. Their CD “Rock” was selected by Zooglobble as one of the top 10 debut CDs for 2011, and the song “Metaphor” was selected as one of the top 25 songs for 2011. Their sophomore CD is due out in the Spring of 2012.


Mister E (Eric Levine) will be 47 in two years, but his love of the alphabet can be traced back to his early kindergarten finger-paintings, formerly displayed in the Frigidaire wing of the Levine Museum. A high school English teacher by day (and father of 2 boys at all hours), Mister E's rock and roll legacy includes Portland 90's sensation The Willies, as well as Fuzzball, Danny and the Originals, and the apocryphal Dry Water (Sand).

Mister Hoo (Jeff Inlay) is just 1 year shy of 47 and, though familiar with the alphabet since childhood, has only grown to love it in recent years. A father of 2 boys, he has been in more bands than he can count (although he claims he can only count to 3), but is most well known for playing in Portland 90's sensation Hummingfish, and is least well known for his time in Southern California punk band the Mendicant Sauciers. He's also confident he was not in Led Zeppelin. Mr. E and Mr. Hoo were also featured in The Fundada Five, Lump of Food and The _ Experience.
