MEET THE BANDS
Chad Hollister Band
Chad Hollister Band hails from Vermont. They have been evolving and touring the country for over 20 years. Anthony J. Resta (Collective Soul, Elton John, Shawn Mullins) says "Hollisters music is pure sonic alchemy" which means it's damn good in Vermont terms!
Chad has opened for Bob Dylan, Paul Simon and Tom Petty and has shared the stage with every PHISH member, Billy Gibbons, Merl Saunders, Warren Haynes and Blues Traveler. His music is a voice for the Positive and reminds you that life is truly a gift as is the ability to share it through music.
Chad has released four official recordings and number 5, titled "Stop the World", featuring the full 10 piece band, comes out April 14.
The LIVE experience is one to remember whether solo acoustic or the 9 piece band including 3 horns and percussion.
Dead Winter Carpenters
Since forming in 2010, California-based Dead Winter Carpenters has gained a reputation for steadfast touring, heartfelt performances, and authentic Americana. Portland Metronome puts the quintet “at the forefront of a youthful generation trying to redefine what string music is and what it can do.”
That progressive nature shines through in the band’s latest album, Washoe (February 26). A 12-song collection of original songs by Dead Winter Carpenter members, Washoe’s diverse track list pays tribute to diverse musical influences including classic rock, bluegrass, alt-country, and rockabilly. Highlight tracks include “Midnight Ghost,” “Love Amongst Thieves,” and “Winning Hand,” and the angst-tinged duet, “If I Wrote You A Song.”
Satin & Steel
Originally formed in 1971 by a group of high school friends, Satin & Steel rocked Vermont for many years before disbanding - at least temporarily.
In 1993, the call went out and the band was re-formulated - better and badder than ever!!
Still going strong today, Satin & Steel will rock you with some of the best music (and grooves) you have ever heard. Check us out!!
