Sleepy Hollow: Home

Sleepy Hollow have sold thousands of copies of their EP and "Goin' Over" full-length CD worldwide since their inception in 1999. They are a tough group to label - delving in the realms of Acid Rock, Prog, and Metal, with passages more reminiscent of jazz or classical than rock music. The main lineup of Guitar, Bass, Drums, and Keyboards (with band members sharing vocal duties) is often augmented by instances of acoustic folky or classical instruments, such as flute. Their long-awaited album "Legend" - featuring an eclectic 2 hrs. of music - has been released July 2010, following a one-disc "heavy metal" version (featuring alternate mixes and non-album tracks) entitled "the Lazarus Project" out December 2008. Guitarist Matt "the Mole" Schwarz has performed solo at Renaissance Faires and elsewhere, playing traditional ballads and early music on harp, guitar, mandola, flute, recorder, etc. He has released a CD of acoustic folk songs (traditional and original) and one of solo harp instrumentals. He also performed and recorded with Sarabande (who combine Renaissance music with Irish jigs & reels and wild gypsy tunes), with Castle Musicale (a medieval/renaissance group), and played harp in the Castle Rock Orchestra (which debuted a number of Matt's orchestral works, including the finale to his symphony).  Matt is currently playing guitar in Denver rock band Odin's Other Eye and new progressive metal group Sold Future.

Joe Dell has now a permanent residency at Zoila's Kitchen in garfield NJ 

every Saturday Night 7-9


Joe Dell, "...the owner Ray who is a stand up guy and does the cooking himself I believe, asked me to play there and help entertain the guests. I play jazz piano, mostly jazz versions of rock classics and some other stuff. I love it! The food is top shelf. I mean I get asked because I am of Italian heritage , where is there a good Italian restaurant, I usually would say, my grandma Maggio (laughing) but, now I can honestly say Zoila's Kitchen. The pasta is cooked perfect, sauce incredible and the steaks are the best I ever had!..."

God rest Jason Menniti - July 11, 2019

Sleepy Hollow Band would like to send their deepest sympathies to the family of Jason Menniti who passed on July 2nd 2019. 


Joe Dell, "Jason was my brother. I probably wouldn't even have an album out if it weren't for him. All the work he did on my cars so I can have a shot at music. Our souls were cut from the same cloth. We enjoyed the same music and all we needed was to be surrounded by good people and some trees and we were happy. He had a heart a gold. He would truly help others from the heart, loved ones and strangers alike. I am glad we got to go see Nick Mason together, one last concert. My heart breaks for his family. Miss him..."
