The Holiday Band was formed in 1991 in Burlington NC. The group has performed in 14 states and plays around 200 dates each year, playing original music as well as cover tunes. They have a huge song list that includes hits from the 1950’s through today, and blends genres such as Current & Classic Top 40, Soul, Funk, Rock & Roll, Motown, Jazz, and much more. It’s common to hear Bruno Mars, The Temptations, Alabama, Kool & The Gang, Van Morrison, Maroon 5, Rod Stewart and more in 30 minutes. What makes the band even more impressive is their desire to make each song their own. You may hear a song that you know and love in a way that sounds just like it was by the original artist, and then the next will sound completely unique to the band. If you seek a band that brings you to the dance floor, look no further!
