The Buck Hollers Band  formed in 2015 (with Tim Wills, who has since gone one on to greener, or perhaps grayer, pastures) has over 40 years each of music experience. They blend guitars, banjo, bass, harmonica, percussion, piano and four-part harmonies with a professionally-engineered sound mix and a good dose of humor for an act that appeals to all ages and many tastes.

Matt Parisi

Bass guitar, vocals

Starting as a trumpet player, his dad brought home a bass one day and said "We need a bass player. Learn this." A talented stone mason by day, he's been rockin' the standup and electric bass ever since. His 'adventures' with his first smartphone are rumored to be responsible for our first original and often requested song.

Guitar, banjo, vocals

Dave Vallett

As a young classical guitarist Dave wondered why he couldn't attract girls, so he moved on to lead guitar in a rock band. He eventually added banjo and became an engineer. This reversed any progress with the ladies but luckily he found another engineer who would not only marry him, but would tolerate the banjo.

Guitar, harmonica, vocals

Steve White

One of our favorite things is to arrange a song that requires Steve's mellow voice, rhythmic guitar backing, and harmonica solos, in two or even three different keys, then stand back and watch! While he masterfully pulls it off, the flurry of movement and the nervous sweating are a thing of beauty.

Drums, vocals, sound

Joel Snyder Jr.

No stranger to the Burlington music scene, Joel produces sound for top groups like Nobby Reed, Carol Ann Jones & the Superchargers, and Shake. As an accomplished martial artist, no one wants to tell him we mostly just like having a gear guy with a studio, a van and an electrician's license on board.

Sound, Keyboard

A pianist since age 8, Cathy initially learned from her mother and has played and taught professionally her entire adult life, including stints in church choirs and gospel concerts. She also solos at weddings and other functions. She says she enjoys music mostly because of the connections with other people, but hangs with us anyway.
