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, Walkin' 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. Holiday has a huge amount of respect for traditional blues harmonica and it shows in his techniques and style.
