Best Band to Break Up/Get Together (2001)

The Hollisters

Seems like Houston's finest rockabilly band is always either on the verge of great success or on the brink of dissolving. Neither is ever quite true. The Hollisters' last album, Sweet Inspiration, could have been a springboard to national prominence, but a series of personnel changes followed its release. However, anchored by the baritone sounds of lead singer Mike Barfield, who always brings to mind a young Johnny Cash, the Hollisters continue to rock. Hopefully someday Barfield will get the commercial airplay he and his band deserve.
