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.

Sleepy Hollow Band Chuck Berry Tribute (click Metal Talk link for Steve Goldby's phenomenal tribute) - March 22, 2017
As all Sleepy Hollow Band fans know, the very first set Sleepy Hollow Band ever played included Johnny B. Goode by Chuck Berry. Joe Dell has mentioned growing up listening to Chuck on his father's old vinyls and the rest of the band all had some kind of influence, thus a metal band playing the only R&R song ever in their set by Chuck Berry. His influence can be heard in the riff of Armageddon among others. He influenced everyone from The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Elvis, AC/DC, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper, SRV and so on. So, we take this time to pay tribute and respect to the Godfather of R&R guitar.
