About the Bands:
Welcome to the official fan page of Utah's premiere polka band, specializing in Western Pennsylvania/Cleveland-style polka music!
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 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.
