Since 1996 Dark Hollow has sought to carry on the Grateful Dead’s live tradition and tap into the collective band/crowd relationship that transforms ordinary moments into magic.
Their ability to move seamlessly between songs and musical styles enables them to tell a musical story that both honors the original song versions and allows the band members to create new interpretations. Anchored by founding members Mike Vincitore (Lead Guitar) and Mike O’Hara (Lead Vocals/Guitar), the band includes Jeff Roney (Drums), Jack Jarvis (Drums), Aaron Fried (Bass), Mark Nanni (Keys), and Mike Hamilton (Rhythm Guitar). Performances will often include guests from the band’s large network of fellow musicians. The band’s strong musical chemistry and individual talents set the backdrop for powerful vocal performances, soaring guitar and keyboard leads, backed by a powerful and versatile rhythm section that sets the groove.
The band has performed on bills with Moe., Melvin Seals and Terrapin Flyer, Vince Welnick, New Riders of The Purple Sage, Donna Jean Godchaux, and many more.
