So excited to let you know about the newest single from The Holdup, "Solid" out now and available everywhere.
Boomshots caught with with lead singer Mike Garmany to talk about the new song, "singer and songwriter Mike Garmany is opening up about his battle with anxiety and depression—which left him “nearly suicidal”—in a new song called “Solid,” which Boomshots proudly premieres today. “This is not a call for sympathy nor is it an attempt to gain attention,” says Garmany. “This is an attempt to relate to other people who may be going through or have gone through similar experiences to mine. You’re not alone. Everything is okay. Just keep living.”

See here if The Holdup is coming to a city near you!
Kicking off their 2016 fall tour, San Jose pop-reggae outfit The Holdup took the Knitting Factory stage on Sunday night with support from Oogee Wawa (NY) and Brother Jerome (NJ). Each band brought their own distinct flavor of reggae to the Brooklyn venue. Brother Jerome with smooth, saxophone driven ballads, Oogee Wawa a powerful combo of rap and rock, and The Holdup's signature blend of R&B and pop hooks over reggae rhythms.
Leading things off was Brother Jerome, a quartet from Pompton Plains, NJ. Brother Jerome played much of their set as a trio because their drummer unfortunately got stuck in Miami due to Hurricane Matthew. Despite playing short-handed, the band still impressed with tender vocals from lead singer/guitarist Ryan Bria, and sweet tones provided by saxophone player Dan Chetnik. Towards the end of their set, Brother Jerome invited Oogee Wawa's Chad Chadwick to the stage to play drums. Chadwick, clearly a multi-talented musician, is actually Oogee Wawa's bass player, but he looked and sounded right at home behind the kit.
