PEOPLE WATCHING

People Watching’s music is somewhere between the regatta de blanc of the Police, the melodic indie that Sub Pop’s been cranking out as of late (Band of Horses/the Shins/Fleet Foxes/et al’s vocal phrasings, especially), and hints of classic jam and psych rock bands (the Allman Brothers or “Wish You Were Here” era Pink Floyd, specifically). In short – gently loping funky tunes with lyrics you can (and want to) sing along with.”   -Nick Spacek, Village Voice Media

Tony Holiday @Uncle Bo's (Topeka KS)
FRIDAY, AUGUST 9 | UNCLE BO’S
NEW ARTIST PLUCKED FROM KING BISCUIT HOUR

TONY HOLIDAY

Tony, on vocals and harp, brings out that old school voice that is sometimes missing from the Blues scene today. It harkens back to when the Blues were just finding their way in the new electric age. In that transition, the sounds that were coming out of the local independent record labels in Memphis and that you might of heard from the King Biscuit Hour in its later years or on one of the other many stations that spotted the value of the Blues. His passion and vocal strength with a soulman’s heart and wicked sense of impish humor blend to let you enjoy those deep blues and then chuckle when you might not otherwise have done so at the sometimes dark current of Blues. He has the ability to make you laugh in the face of pain.
