The Band 

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

Matt Parisi & Steve White from Georgia, VT, and Dave Vallett  and Tim Wills from Fairfax have over 30 years each of musical experience. After decades in their church choir they combined their love of acoustic instrumental music and rich vocal harmony to form The Buck Hollers Band in 2015. They blend guitars, banjo, bass and harmonica with four-part vocals and a good dose of humor for an act that appeals to all ages and many tastes.

They play popular and little-known pieces from bands like:

  • Old Crow Medicine Show, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band

  • Creedence Clearwater Revival, Neil Young

  • Tom Waits, Brooks Benton

  • The Grateful Dead, Tom Petty, Kentucky Headhunters

  • John Prine, Steve Earle, Guy Clark, Bob Dylan

  • Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson

  • Ricky Skaggs, Kenny Chesney, Luke Bryan, Don Williams

  • Bob Wills, Hank Williams

  • Trampled by Turtles

  • The Band, Travelin' Wilburys

  • Traditional roots-based Americana

  •  Irish folk and pub songs

  • Buck Hollers Band originals
