Tony Holiday & the Velvetones Tony Holiday and The Velvetones are full of Blues goodness with a bit of a southern rock flare. Fats Grill was pretty packed and full of energetic fans ready to dance all night. Some of which, had never even heard them play before. They're definitely impressive and yet another band that will leave people with the desire to see them over and over. The skill of each musician is incredible. The music is enticing, energetic, and it's damn near impossible to listen to and keep a desire to stay in your seat. Hearing about how these guys are awesome, doesn't do seeing them live much justice. It could be said that this is one of fewlocal bands who may actually break into the big time
Tupelo Moan We're a pretty good band. We love to play live shows. You'll hear a lot of Delta blues stuff in there, but we kind of skew to the hard rock/punk end of things. And there are a few hip hop elements as well.
