(HUDSON, N.Y.) – Hollis Brown brings its classic rock sounds to Club Helsinki Hudson on Saturday, August 27, at 9pm. The group should appeal to fans of the Rolling Stones and Lou Reed.

Named after a Bob Dylan song (“The Ballad of Hollis Brown”), Hollis Brown, from Queens, N.Y., has achieved a significant amount of success since their formation in 2009. They released their debut album “Ride on the Train” in 2013, garnering song and video premieres from Rolling Stone, Paste, and American Songwriter, along with music placements on Direct TV’s “Kingdom,” Showtime’s “Shameless,” MTV’s “Real World,” and the Willem Dafoe/Matt Dillon film “Bad Country.”

The group’s unique update of classic rock variously recalls the Steve Miller Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, “Let It Bleed”-era Rolling Stones, the Byrds, Neil Young, doo-wop, the Boss, you name the influence (pretty much every great band and artist except for Bob Dylan).

Following a Lou Reed tribute concert in NYC, Hollis Brown was asked to record a tribute to the Velvet Underground’s classic album “Loaded,” as a limited-edition vinyl release for Record Store Day 2014. “Hollis Brown Gets Loaded” took on a life of its own, with airplay on influential radio stations, resulting in a full CD and digital release.

The band has toured extensively in America and Europe, headlining and supporting such bands as the Zombies, Jackie Greene, Heartless Bastards, Rich Robinson of Black Crowes, and Jesse Malin.

This concert represents Helsinki Hudson’s commitment to programming emerging and rising artists.
