Hollis Brown
Hollis Brown
Hollis Brown is a self-defined American Rock ‘n’ Roll band. Named after a Bob Dylan song (“The Ballad of Hollis Brown”), the band was formed by Queens-natives and songwriters Mike Montali (lead vocals/guitar) and Jonathan Bonilla (lead guitar). Both 2nd-generation immigrants (Italian-American and Puerto Rican-American, respectively), they soon found their musical brethren in the Mid-West, recruiting Dillon Devito (bass/vocals) and Andrew Zehnal (drums) from Ohio, and Adam Bock (keyboard/vocals) from Missouri.



Hollis Brown made a significant splash as an independent band with the release of their debut album “Ride On The Train” on Alive Naturalsound in 2013 (produced by Adam Landry), garnering song and video premieres from Rolling Stone, Paste, and American Songwriter, and music placements on MTV’s “Real World”, Showtime’s “Shameless”, and the Willem Dafoe/Matt Dillon film “Bad Country”. They toured extensively in America and Europe, building a fanbase on both continents. Following a memorable performance at a Lou Reed tribute concert in NYC, Alive Naturalsound asked the band to go back into the studio to record a tribute to the Velvet Underground’s classic album “Loaded”, as a limited-edition vinyl release for Record Store Day 2014.



The band has now finished recording their new studio album, “3 Shots” which has been mixed by the legendary John Agnello, and is the focus of a pre-order campaign through PledgeMusic: http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/hollisbrown The album is slated for an early May 2015 release through Jullian Records.

“Hollis Brown make music that sounds just as alive today as it would've in 1966 and will 40 years from now.” - SPIN

“Everything you'd expect from a band named after a Bob Dylan tune, mixing Americana and Bible Belt blues with a heavy dose of no-frills Southern rock.” - AMERICAN SONGWRITER
Buffalo Killers - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Buffalo Killers
Buffalo Killers are an American rock band comprising brothers Zachary and Andrew Gabbard with Joseph Sebaali. Quickly signed to Alive Records after sending a burnt CD with just their telephone number and name on it, their self-titled debut album was released in October of 2006.

Buffalo Killers drew the attention of Chris Robinson, who invited the band to open a string of dates for The Black Crowes. That road trip spawned the songs for the band's second long player, Let It Ride, produced by The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach.

Most recently, the Buffalo Killers completed their fourth full length, "Dig. Sow. Love. Grow." out on Alive Records summer 2012. The summer will also see a 45 RPM release of a couple Eddie Hinton tunes recorded and produced by Dan Auerbach, out on Shake It Records as part of their "Dangerous Highway: A Tribute to the Music of Eddie Hinton" series.
