As you may or may not know, we are about to undergo some changes. Our original Bass player Aaron Alicea will be leaving us next month to pursue a life in Austin, Texas with the lovely Caroline VanStratton of New Sweden. What Aaron has brought to The Hold-Up is something unique and great. His bass lines have not only improved our sound in the past but in some ways set the bar higher when it comes to really getting the most out of our sound. And while Aaron will definitely be missed we will be going on in his absence, welcoming Matt Messatzzia into the mix. Matt comes to us from another local group "Boomslang", he also for the past month has been filling in with the Universal Funk Order. Matt's talents have so far proven to be quite an addition to our group and we are very happy to have him. We've also begun featuring the lovely Bri Vinette from Fat Daddy Has Been on Saxaphone.
Friday July 27th @ Kelly's Logan House will be our final show with Aaron as we join New Sweden in bidding our soon to be former band mates farewell. Bri Vinette joins us on the Sax and last but not least, we are finally Releasing our Debut self-titled EP both physically and soon to be on iTunes and Amazon! So dont forget your wallet, just because the show is free! I mean you're still going to need a drink.
So to re-cap, Old members farewell, New Members Welcomed, Our Ep is out! and July 27th @ Kellly's Logan House is where its all going down.
Also check our latest show updates! !
Our next Musikarmageddon date is August 9th @ Logan House.
Our first show with the new bassist on stand-up is August 3rd @ The Blue Parrot.
Love to all,
