Holly & The Woods

Holly & The Woods

HOLLY & THE WOODS returns with three original members Craig Henning, Melissa Conradie & Gary Ashford, still on Rhythm guitar, lead vocals and bass respectively, and two brand new members.Saying goodbye in May 2010 to what was going to be the end of the Holly & The Woods, by End October 2010 three of the members realised that they couldn’t let a band such as HOLLY & THE WOODS go! During the break-up everyone took on other projects and attempted to recreate the success and energy that made Holly & The Woods a great band, but nothing came close to what they had… Sadly Chad Harbott could not rejoin on drums having landed an amazing opportunity touring as a session drummer.

It didn’t take long to find new members and by January 2011 the HOLLY & THE WOODS line-up was complete. Joining the band are Lee-Jaime Havenga on drums and Darren Drawbridge on lead Guitar. Lee, the youngest in the band, is certainly no newcomer to the scene and also plays drums in local band “Good By Cooper”. Darren also comes from a colourful musical background and has performed with the likes of “Jo Day” and “Concussion Girl”.

Following the release of their debut album “SO I RAGE” in 2008, Holly & The Woods have had three Top 10 singles on radio and racked up an impressive live performance CV, performing with the likes of Eagle-Eye Cherry, The Ataris, Sarah Bettens (from K’s Choice), Shaun Morgan from Seether, and hot local acts such as Prime Circle, Zebra & Giraffe, Van Coke Cartel, Heuwels Fantasties, Ef-El and many more! The band also continues their long standing reputation as one of SA’s only Female Fronted Hard Rock Bands!

Taking 2011 on with a refreshed energy, a new single in August and the 2nd album due Early 2012, there’s no keeping Holly & The Woods quiet this time around.

Celebrating the return of HOLLY & THE WOODS, fellow Rockers EASY TIGER will be making it a night to remember as THE BOSTON ROCK LOUNGE plays host to a big Rock Night in Edenvale! EASY TIGER are one SA’s most talented new rock bands and they are doing incredibly well on radio with their current hit single “ The Bored And The Lonely”!
