Sleepy Hollow Band headlines Limelight in NYC - March 28, 2001

Sleepy Hollow headlined New York City's famous Limelight. They hit the stage around 10 pm, and blasted out a number of their classics after entering to the Clockwork Orange Theme. They roared into Destiny where Dan sung lead and Joe Dell performed his best Hammond lead he ever played in the song, along with Mole tearin up the strings in the end lead section. Dan and Frank's harmonies were powerful as always. Then the quartet went into Unity where Frank took the lead vocals after a smooth transition from one song into the other.

Joe Dell then took the helm by performing Bach's Toccata in D Minor on the pipe organ bringing a dark overtone to the show. People cheered him on as he created an atmosphere long forgotten on that land.

From Above was presented in all it's glory with inflatable Aliens and all. People were called closer to the stage to join in with the stage show. As always, people keep their distance due to the time Joe Smashed his first keyboard at the infamous Connection's show in Clifton back in the spring of 2000. Frank spit out the almost rap like style of vocals before the band took the crowd into outer space with Joe's organ lead.

Then, it was Frank Michael Melick's time to shine! Frank performed his animated and emotional drum solo, beating out the drums until it was time for what the crowd was waiting for, his Flaming Drum Stick Solo! Joe held the powerchords for Frank to bring the kit to life!

Then the new song written by Frank and Joe titled Under the Ground was revealed for the first time. Unfortunately the sound man didn't realize it was Joe's time to sing and never adjusted the microphone's accordingly. So, all was hear was Frank's backing vocals...but. The heavy gothic song still got the crowd excited!

Due to the time restraint, the band was made to play their final song, and their name sake Sleepy Hollow, where Mole's acoustic and Joe's Sampler set the mood along with Frank's mysterious ahs and percussion. After the spoken interlude, the band went to the fast gallop where Mole's belted out the lyrics that define the band and the historic Washington Irving tale! The crowd enjoyed the headless horseman who threw out balloon wrapped gifts to the fans. The unpredicted ending was Joe Dell dragging out his organ and then chopping it to pieces with a woodsman's axe while foaming at the mouth.

The show ended with the afterparty where many patrons drank and danced to the techno that blared from the speakers
