Holly Holden y Su Banda

Holly Holden y Su Banda are a London-based three piece that blend bitter-sweet pop tunes with Caribbean rhythms in a deliciously danceable fusion they call Tropical Soul.

Sassy bassist front woman Holly seduces with Spanglish love songs, accompanied by innovative New York drummer Dave who makes the kit sound like a full percussion section, and Frank who plays both rhythm guitar and knocks out the odd mind-melting solo.

Drawing on eclectic influences, including reggae, rocksteady, cumbia, bachata and soul, this band have an irresistible sound that has had crowds dancing at international music festivals in the Dominican Republic and Haiti, in New York night clubs, at London’s best independent music venues and at festivals like Tropical Pressure and Green Man.
