The Band 

"I feel like I'm in an Irish pub!"


Matt Parisi & Steve White from Georgia, VT, Dave Vallett from Fairfax, and Tim Wills from Derby started the band in 2015. They share over 30 years each of instrumental and vocal experience. In 2019, longtime Burlington-area sound-engineer Joel Snyder Jr. added his audio skills, a smooth baritone voice, and a nice range of percussion beats. Together the Buck Hollers Band blends guitars, banjo, bass, harmonica, percussion and five-part vocals with a professionally-engineered sound mix and a good dose of humor for an act that appeals to all ages and many tastes.
