Rafe Hollister
Rafe Hollister Bio:

Visit us at WWW.RAFEHOLLISTER.COM The Rafe Hollister Band was born in 2005 in the mountains of Maggie Valley, N.C. After a year of rehearsing and recording, the final line-up came together. The members are: Sam Brinkley- Lead Vocals/Guitar/Drums/Harmonica, Jeff Mendenhall- Fiddle, Brooks Butler- Lead Guitar/Backing Vocals, Joseph Massie- Bass/Backing Vocals and Mark Moser- Mandolin. Most of the band members spent their early years in rock bands, which now gives the boys their own unique sound that they call Mountain Rock, describing their use of traditional bluegrass instruments to create Rafe's brand of roots music. The new album entitled "Stimulus Package" is an eclectic mix of original songs ranging from bluegrass, rock, folk, blues, punk and country. In the lyrics you'll hear tales of heartbreak, moonshine, scarecrows, lard, Nascar, gospels, albiners, poking things with a stick, cows, parole, missing teeth, illiteracy, staring at the sun, possums, hoedowns, tractors, pig fights, gambling, hillbillies, chicken spit, horsepower, losers, trucks, city folk, family trees that don't branch, trailer parks, coon dogs, minimum wage, Bigfoot, camouflage, food stamps, Uncle Daddy, Skoal rings, dirt naps, bootleggers, Ford vs. Chevy, overalls, mullets, fancy book learnin', hair loss, The Man, gibberish, manual labor, squirrels, loitering, pocket knives, feuds and various other subjects that make up life in rural Appalachia. It's just mountain grown, Southern bred, honky tonkin' rock at it's purest. Rafe Hollister has a reputation for high energy performances and mighty fine original music, and they aim to keep it that way.
