The Hollyhotchers have been writing and performing original music since 1995, when the oldest member was just 15. Since then, the band's sound has evolved and matured into a guitar-based pop-rock extraviganza. The band consists of Matt Esolda (songs/guitar), Scott Wiener (percussion/guitar/production), and Pete Epple (bass) Demo #3 is the New Jersey band's third release, as can be inferred by the title. It follows two short cssettes which were released on a limited scale. All three were completely recorded and produced by The Hollyhotchers in Scott's basement. Demo #3 provides a mixture of influences ranging from R.E.M. to Rusted Root to Ballz Out to Steve Dropkin. Mr.T says 'I pity the fool who doesn't buy The Hollyhotchers' new release, demo #3.'
