Sleepy Hollow: Home
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 performs 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 performs and records with Sarabande (who combine Renaissance music with Irish jigs & reels and wild gypsy tunes) and as a somemes guest of Castle Musicale (a medieval/renaissance group), and plays harp in the Castle Rock Orchestra.
Joe Dell pays his respects to his friend Thomas "Mootsy" Vetri
April 25, 2013
Joe Dell recieved the sad news about the passing of his close, dear friend Thomas "Mootsy" Vetri. The Mootsy name had been a part of the Sleepy Hollow band since day one. He has had his special blurbs on every Sleepy Hollow release and he is mentioned in the Goin' Over Musie Seedy Sales spoken section. Joe gave some special words on his friend, "Mootsy was a more of a brother than a friend. He has been in my life for 27 years and was a very important part. When I was young and going through the awkward time in my life all teens do, he helped build my esteem and taught me how to defend myself. He made me laugh when I was down. When my mother passed away, Moots sat on his front porch with me and consoled me and helped lift my spirits with some of deepest words I had ever heard from him at the time. I always thanked him for what he did for me. To be honest I would never had been able to go on stage with the confidence I had if it weren't for him. He loved me as well as his other friends and family. He took care of his little girl Munchkin better than any father could have. My heart goes to his daughter, mother & father, sisters and Flower. I loved him dearly and this is another piece of my hearth lost. Rest well my brother, I'll be seein' ya soon."
Joe Dell completes his masterpiece Goin' Over the book!
April 20, 2013
Joe Dell annouces that he has finished the book he has been hard at work on for over a year and a half. Let's get the words from his mouth. Joe Dell, "Yeah! It's finished! Thank God! I am drained from it all. Though it is fiction, I did put the worst times of my life in that book. I found myself crying at times while writing it. I am very happy with the outcome and the artwork will just top it off. I hope people read it with an open mind and look deeper into it, rather than just take it as a book about a drug addict. There are hidden things in the book, double meanings and even the artwork will have people thinking twice. As humble as I am, this is good stuff. I am grateful for my family and friends that have supported me through out the writing process. Now, back to the music!"
