Holt 45 is an acoustic trio consisting of two Holt brothers and their Holt cousin. Having 3 vocalists, 2 who are acomplished guitarists and one who is a versatile percussionist, we offer a sound closer to that of a full band, yet with the space requirements and volume level of a basic acoustic duo.

We have all been playing professionally for our entire adult lives and our past projects have given... us extensive experience playing every size venue, from small bars to stadiums. Collectively we have played with many well known, national acts such as Evanescence, Stone Temple Pilots, Linkin Park, Public Enemy, Velvet Revolver, Disturbed, Fuel, and U2. We have done studio projectss with both Grammy nominated and Grammy award winning Producers and our original songs have received local and regional radio play.

We created Holt 45 to entertain clubs, bars, restaurants, corporate events, and private parties with songs you know and love, bringing with us a sense of humor, a wealth of experience, and a lifelong passion for music and performing. Our two years as Holt 45 has been full of great experiences. We've seen many establishments hire us on a recurring monthly basis after our first night there. We've had two successful summers playing at the Jersey shore and have gained a number of private and corporate clients. We even performed on the Preston and Steve Morning show on 93.3 WMMR.

Holt 45 is perfect if you are looking for live music that has a much more of a full band sound than a duo, without the high volume level and larger space requirements of a full band. With a complete sound system and stage lighting, we are a totally self contained full production, and ready to rock!
