Hello friends and welcome to Chad Hollister Band's new site. I hope you can hear some new tunes and find a show that works for you. We are always making our way from coast to coast and hope to see you somewhere somehow.

The Strand and The Laurita Fund 

Thanks to all who made it an amazing evening at The Strand Theater in Rockland, Maine last Saturday. Our sponsors  were Goose River Golf, Dowling-Walsh Gallery and The Allen Agency. They made the show possible. Also, huge thanks to Trackside Station for feeding us all dinner and Jimmy Blanchette for our Long Trail Beer and sandwiches for lunch. The night was amazing and I am in love with The Strand Theater. It is very intimate and the sound is amazing. Our longtime friend Chris McKearney recorded the show and we will be releasing that sometime soon to help out The Laurita Fund a little more.
It was great to have my wife Katie and kids Riley and Bodi on the trip with me. That always adds a special element for me and allows us to take our time in getting back home. We got to see the amazing beginnings of foliage in The Mt. Washington Valley as we meandered through the White Mountains on route 2 back to VT.
Thanks to Andrew Stewart, the Executive Director of Hope Elephants for his energy involved with this show. It took an obvious turn when Jim passed away and I wasn't sure it was going to happen. I'm very glad it did and thanks The Rockland community for supporting Jim's wife Carrie, and his two sons Henry and Louis. After the dust settles, please continue to be there for his family. 
Rosie and Opal are back where they came from at the Endangered Ark Foundation in Hugo, Oklahoma. They are safe and doing well. I'm glad I was able to play some music for them both before they left and see Jim one last time.

Barre Opera House!! 

We were blown away as we took the stage at BOH in Barre, VT to the warm, full house. Kris Gruen nailed it opening the show and Bo Muller Moore(The Eat More Kale Guy!!) was our tasteful MC for the evening.  A huge thanks to our sponsors for the evening--Noyle Johnson, Berlin Optical Expressions, Onion River Sports, VOLKL,North Branch Vineyards, Long Trail, Farrell Distributing, Hoka Shoes, and Minuteman Press. Looking forward to Spruce Peak January 17. Get those tickets!!
