Chad Hollister & The Large Band – Rhythmic Roots Rock For The Soul!
Chad Hollister is releasing his 5th recording and is just back from a South African tour. He has opened for Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Top Petty and Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top. His music is a voice for the positive and as BILLBOARD Magazine says “Chad is a no frills kind of rocker cut from the same mold as John Mellencamp, Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen”. Chad and The Large band has been selling out theaters across New England and continues to make fans wherever they go. He has sold over 20,000 records independently. Chad & his Big Band are honored to be back at The Festival that Chad calls his “second home”. The Large Band is Chad on Guitar & Lead Vocals, Jeff Poremski Lead Guitar/Vocals, Jared Johnson on Bass, Tommy Diehl on Drums, Steve Benson on Pedal Steel & Mandolin, Chris Peterman on Tenor Sax, Alex Lee Clarke on Trumpet, Luke Laplant on Baritone Sax and Ben Griffin on Trombone.
*W/Break for annual Harbor Illumination & Fireworks at dusk.
