The Hoolios are a diverse group morphing from solo singer-songwriter Jim Carpenter to an acoustic quartet and six-piece rock/dance band depending upon the venue. The Hoolios have garnered an excellent reputation for their Americana/Rock/Latin and Zydeco grooves, featuring three lead vocalists, accordion, mandolin, washboard and organ . . . often with guests horns and female vocalists.
The Hoolios flexible configurations and vast original repertoire - intimate, thought-provoking acoustic sets, hypnotic Reggae and New Orleans style dance grooves and scathing rock and alt country - have made them favorites among folk houses, dance clubs, Cajun, Country and Rock Festivals.
Jim Carpenter and/or The Hoolios have performed in Miami, Boston, Nashville, Austin and Chicago, in venues such as: Mohegan Sun Wolf Den, The Saxon, South Florida Folk Fest, SailFest, Knickerbocker, Cafe Nine, Bluebird Cafe, Javelina Festival, Daffodil Festival, Chicago Lake County Folk Fest, Block Island Music Festival . . .
With two cds - 'Rosalie' and 'Silver Triangle' - under their belt, the Hoolios are currently mastering a new project, tentatively entitled 'The Dream.'
