Hey! We're Hold On Hollywood. Four local Houston boys who make music and play shows anywhere and everywhere we can! We're hitting the road for a bunch of dates this year with the legendary band Candlebox on their Wolves 2022 Tour! This is an amazing opportunity for any band, especially one on our level, so you can imagine how excited we are to take part in this tour.
We head out on our first run of shows with Candlebox in less than a week, and as anyone knows, touring for a band on our level is a very costly endeavor. It will cost thousands of dollars per week just to make the shows happen on our end, between van rentals, gas (which is nearing $4.00 per gallon these days), hotels and food, etc. Not to mention things like guitar strings, drum heads, tour merch, and other misc things we'll need while we're out on the road.
Here's where YOU have the opportunity to help us out! Normally we would put together a hometown show, or series of shows, to help raise funds for a tour like this. With these first run of shows starting one week from today, we were unable to do that this time around. So we're reaching out to you guys, who have always been so amazingly supportive of us throughout the years we've been a band. Every dollar donated will get us another mile down the road and one step closer to being able to pull off something that so many musicians and people like us dream about doing. If you would like to help out but prefer not to make a donation, you can always head over to our ONLINE STORE
and scoop up some of our current stock of HOH Merch
. We've got a ton of different t-shirts, magnets, koozies, CDs, and more that we can ship out to you immediately.
We're putting together a few Houston area shows that will take place in the coming months to help fund the second, third, and fourth runs of this tour. We're also working on a Kickstarter type fundraiser that will give everyone a chance to pick up things like limited edition Hold On Hollywood tour merch, hand-written lyric sheets, stage-used setlists from the tour, and more. We may even offer up an autographed HOH guitar, and maybe even something for the super fans out there, like an acoustic performance in your living room or backyard for you and some of your closest friends!
We'll definitely come up with some fun and exciting ways to get everyone involved in the coming weeks, and announce some Houston area shows for the hometown fans, friends, and families of Hold On Hollywood. For now, we really just need to get through next week so anything you can donate would mean more to us than you can possibly imagine!
At the end of the day, we're just four local boys trying to live a dream and every dollar helps us get another mile down the road! Thank you guys for all of your support over the years, and we're excited to finally get the chance to make some new memories with each and every one of you! 2022 is going to be an amazing year and we can't wait to see you all at the shows!
