The Holiday Band was formed in 1991 in Burlington, N.C., at which time the band played only part time and mostly for private events for several years.
Blending Soul, Blues, Funk, and Carolina Beach music, Holiday established itself as a premier entertainment package.
Due to the success of the recordings made by the band the appearances increased to where the band now plays 175+ dates each year.
The Holiday Band has received several Cammy awards including Best Album and in 2011 Best Group Album from “Sweet Love” and the Rhythm & Beach Top 40 countdown recently recognized the band as having the most songs to chart in the past decade.
