Bring a blanket, picnic, spirits to imbibe and get your groove on with friends and neighbors. 1388 Center Dr, Park City, UT 84098 Tony Holiday & The Velvetones Bio: ENDORSED BY SHAKER HARMONICA MICS! www.shakermicrophones.net and WINNER OF 2012 GORILLA MUSIC BATTLE OF THE BANDS–Tony Holiday and The Velvetones are full of blues goodness with a bit of a southern rock flare. They’re definitely impressive; Tony and his band will leave the crowd wanting more after each show. 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. Tony Holiday is a rising figure in the national harmonica scene, receiving props from such harmonica legends as Lazy Lester, Adam Gussow, Walking Cane Mark, and Ronnie Shellist. His reputation in the blues community has landed him an endorsement from Shaker Harmonica Mics, which he promotes all over the country. Though harmonica is his strong point, Tony also plays guitar with a southern blues style that compliments his harp wonderfully. He switches seamlessly from harmonica to guitar and back, often in the same song. Dave “Rico” Iden is the driving force on drums that propels The Velvetones night after night. After countless stops on the road, Dave knows what it takes to provide the backbone of a great rhythm section, and how to produce the beat that will get everyone out on the dance floor. His energy is what really makes Tony Holiday and The Velvetones such an exciting experience. Adam “The Kid” Fifield does the job of two people in The Velvetones, playing bass and keys at the same time. His left hand lays down the thumping bass lines that get your feet tapping. He breaks out in screaming organ solos with his right hand, keeping the bass going the whole time. Together with Dave “Rico” Iden, Adam completes the rhythm section that is the perfect foundation for Tony Holiday’s guitar and harmonica. –Examiner.com– ”Holiday is highly regarded in the music community; he has been playing music circuits, but on any given night you can find him playing in bars, sitting in or watching local artists.” –Salt Lake City Weekly– They love their local SLC music scene, and at home and on the road they have shared the stage with Legendary Shorty Gilbert,Guitar Shorty,Tinsley Ellis, Charlie Daniels Band, Eric Mcfadden, Jerry Joseph, Timmi Cruz, Soulive’s Alan Evans, The Band of Heathens, Floater, Marinade,Rev. Payton’s Big Damn Band, Stonefed, and so many more.
