They started out as a blues duo, Holly Taormina on guitar and Evan Conway on bass. Then they added Bob Morris behind the drum kit. Eventually they signed on veteran saxman Josh Greenberg, and the Holly & Evan Band expanded to a quartet, rounding out their sound with elements of funk, jazz, soul and rock.
If you haven’t heard them in a while, you can catch up with them at 9pm Saturday (October 22) at the Newberry Music Hall in Saratoga Springs, where they’re throwing a dance party/concert, the Funk Soul Initiative. DJ Intell Hayesfield of Chill Smith opens the show.
Tickets are available online or at the door for $10.
