The Holdup formed in autumn of 2006 when Guitarist Tyler Scurti and Drummer Danny Flores added, Mike Garmany as Lead Vocalist. The Holdup quickly began writing music and started performing at small local gigs. It didn’t take long for the Holdup to gain a steady fanbase and local attention. Later that year, they added a few more members to the holdup team, Kyle Christensen on Bass, Clev Stiles on management and recently Keyboardist Nick Santana. The chemistry and fit were undeniable and The Holdup was complete.
