Texas guitar Icon Michael Holt has blended the elements of Texas R&B with big band swing in a way that brings the style back in the vein of rock and roll that is an incredible powerhouse!
“There is a heritage here in Texas that I refuse to let die.” “There were guitar players that came out of the forties, fifties, and sixties here that pushed the limits combining rhythm and blues, jazz, big band, rock and roll, all of it.” “That is the period of Texas music that I gravitate naturally toward.” “It is in this I find the expression of freedom for this band.” “I have freedom to write songs that are current and timeless at the same time. They sit right in the middle of history in a way that amazes me!”
Michael’s blistering guitar work, soaring vocals and horn section are backed by a stellar rhythm section of upright bass, piano, and drums that give The Trophy 500’s a muscular live show that is truly exciting! The boundaries have been redefined no doubt about it. Michael and the band push the limits at every performance making it a personal experience for all in attendance.
