|The Holiday Band|
|Premiere entertainment package for your private or public event
Blending soul, blues, funk and Carolinas beach music, The Holiday Band is a premiere entertainment package for your private or public event.
Formed in 1991 in Burlington, N.C., The Holiday Band has released nine CDs on Ripete Records, including the 2003 Carolina Association of Beach Music album-of-the-year "Southern Soul Revue,” and the 2008 album-of-the-year "Got It Bad For You.” The band has received CAMMY (Carolina Beach Music) awards for best album, best group and best song, and the Rhythm & Beach Top 40 Countdown recently awarded the band for having the most charted songs in the past ten years!
Because of the success of its recordings and the awards it has received, The Holiday Band’s bookings have increased to more than 200 dates each year, taking the band from Georgia to New York City, and on Carnival Cruise Line trips to Mexico.
Although The Holiday Band has had much success performing Carolina beach music, the group is considered by most to be a variety band and can please most any crowd!
Group members are Mike Taylor on lead vocals, guitar and keyboards; Mike Neese on lead vocals and guitar; Bob Martin on keyboards, tenor and alto sax; Duane Neese on lead vocals and trombone; Bill Ward on drums and vocals, and Doug Neese on lead vocals and bass guitar.
