Feature Band

Hollister Fracus - it's a strong name for a strong band. In fact, the name itself is a reference to an explosive event in American history where a brotherhood of individuals declared its independence from the norm and proved that they could stand for something that set them apart from the ordinary. It is this same determination and strength that drives the band to combine powerful grooves and upfront melodies in their songwriting with infectious enthusiasm and undeniable energy in their live shows. This is what Houston-based Hollister Fracus is all about!
  On drums, Cleveland Ohio born
Aaron Lakner provides a solid backbone by blending excellent acoustic drum tones with intelligent electronic sequencing to make this part of the band complete. His approach is due to his wide range of musical influences from "old school rap" and early metal all the way to the alternative, harder-edged bands of today.
  Houston native
Jerry Lanza plays bass. He is a natural and pure musician who combines a totally unique and aggressive sound with a knack for finding the right bass lines to complement both the drums and guitar. His influences range from Boston and Ozzy (with Bob Daisley on bass) to Godsmack and Pantera.
  With Chicago born and founder of the band
Mike Pruneda on guitar you get nothing but no-nonsense, in-your-face riffs that stick with you long after you've left the venue or heard the songs. His influences are any band that "inspires" such as Rage Against The Machine and Hed PE of today to the legendary riffs of Black Sabbath and AC/DC which have proven to stand the test of time.
  Vocally, Amarillo Texas born
Jim Finley provides great hook-driven lines and powerful aggressive melodies that fit with the music to create both memorable and commanding songs. Influenced by Stone Temple Pilots, Sevendust, and Pantera just to name a few it is clear that he draws from many diverse directions in the pursuit of his art-form.
  Through the years, the band has made quite an impact by putting out three very well selling independent albums and performing just about anywhere. Hollister Fracus possesses an insatiable hunger that will always take them to the next level and enables them to accept any challenge and take every hurdle in stride.
