The Dave Holodiloff Band is returning to Pacific Grove’s Center for Spiritual Awakening for another magical night of high energy acoustic music! Led by Pacific Grove native Dave Holodiloff on mandolin and vocals, the multi talented ensemble features some of the best musicians in the Monterey Bay including Michael Martinez (piano), Elijjah McCullar (violin/banjo), Lex Olsen (guitar), Will Bates (percussion), and John Klein (bass). This is a rare not-to-be-missed performance, a night to awaken the musical spirit within!
The Dave Holodiloff Band is an original acoustic adventure that is equal parts jam and jazz, string band and symphony. A fantastic fusion of fun and sophistication, the music blends symphonic, traditional acoustic, and improvisatory elements to create a sound that is pure excitement. For fans of Bluegrass, Balkan, Celtic, World, Gypsy Jazz, Folk, or Funk, the music will both delight and surprise. The band brings high-energy fun performance and an all-age appeal.
The Center for Spiritual Awakenings beloved musical director and piano prodigy Michael Martinez brings a polished new age jazz sound to the group…watch out for his otherworldly solos, they just might transport you to another dimension!
Fiddle phenom Elijjah McCullar hails from the Sierra Nevada and is well versed in both Balkan, Celtic, World, and Bluegrass (a rare combination in any performer) and if you are lucky, he might break out his Turkish Gypsy banjo!
John Klein is an all around stand up guy and stand up bass player who lays the groove down like nobody else! In addition to collaborating with Dave for over a decade in various projects, John also freelances with Bluegrass and Gypsy Jazz groups across the bay.
Lex Olsen is a dynamic Gypsy and Jazz guitarist who cut his chops touring with gypsy jazz ensembles like Farouche in the Bay Area. He exudes a refreshing youthful energy and adds that unmistakeable “Django-esque” gypsy flavor to the ensemble.
Drummer William Bates-Minou credits his unique style and musical approach to his very colorful musical upbringing. His multi cultural influences are, with great respect and admiration, attributed to many years of study with some of the world’s most influential teachers from Africa, Brazil and the United States. Born in Sydney, Australia and then later moving to the central coast of California, William was from a young age being exposed to a much larger world. His parents, both very talented and skilled artists, were always supportive and enthusiastic of his desire to pursue a career in music. He hopes to be able to share this vision to a wider audience through song writing and music production while still honoring his first loves, drumset and percussion.
