Tony Holt and the Wildwood Valley Boys is a national band traveling all over the United States and Canada. Based in Southeast Indiana, the band gets its name from Tony’s grandparents’ “Wildwood Farm” near Milan, IN. Originally formed in 1992, the band has seen many changes over the years, but continues to overwhelm crowds all over the country. Mostly traditional by nature, the band performs many originals, penned mostly by the Holt clan, and some old time favorites along with some new material.
TONY HOLT plays guitar and sings most of the lead for the band. He is the only original member of The Wildwood Valley Boys. He also played bass for The Boys From Indiana from 1994-1995, until the band’s retirement. He resides near Milan, IN with his family. His influences include The Osborne Brothers, The Louvin Brothers, George Jones, and Hank Williams.
TOM FELLER was born and raised in Milan, Indiana, a small town near the Kentucky border. At an early age, Tom could be found sitting in front of the family’s old record player listening to everything from Buck Owens to the Osborne Brothers as he absorbed instrumental details and picked out harmonies. Born into a musical family, Tom’s father plays guitar and his mother (a singer/songwriter herself) is the sister of Aubrey, Jerry, and Tom Holt, who along with their uncle, Harley Gabbard, made up the bluegrass group “The Boys from Indiana”. During the 1970’s and ’80’s, The Boys from Indiana toured the US extensively, and from the time he was old enough to ride along, Tom was a fixture on their tour bus, witnessing the bluegrass business first-hand. During these years, Tom learned to run sound equipment with his Grandfather as his mentor. This led to a five-year job with bluegrass soundman and songwriter Jerry Williamson and his band “Redwing”. During his high school years, Tom could also be found playing rock and roll music with friends. Tom excelled at electric guitar, also becoming very proficient on piano and drums. Tom then went to work with the newly formed “Larry Stephenson Band.” honing his vocal and multi-instrumental skills playing bass and singing for Larry. Often spending time with talented musicians such as Lou Reid, Dudley Connell, and Terry Baucom, Tom soon became skilled at the mandolin and banjo. He then took some time away from the business to be with his family, during which time Tom formed his own country band and pursued a record deal. Tom will be playing mandolin and singing harmony with the Wildwood Valley Boys.
