Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors

The Hope College Concert Series will feature Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors with special guests Lewis Watson and S. Martin on Thursday, Oct. 26, at 7:30 p.m. in the Concert Hall of the Jack H. Miller Center for Musical Arts.

Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors are an Americana band from Memphis and East Nashville, Tenn. Formed in 2006 by Drew Holcomb (lead vocals, guitar, harmonica), the band includes Nathan Dugger (guitar, keys), Rich Brinsfield (bass), Jonathan Womble (drums) and Grant Pittman (keys).  Past Magazine has described them as “one of those quintessential combos that take their inspiration from the heartland and turn into music for the rest of the country, if not the world.”

Drawing influence from Tom Petty and Bob Dylan, Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors have found their place in today’s landscape of singer/songwriter Americana. Holcomb and his band have developed their sound through extensive touring, performing alongside John Hiatt, Don Henley, The Avett Brothers, Ryan Adams, Los Lobos, Susan Tedeschi, Needtobreathe, Robert Earl Keen and more.

The band has sold more than 100,000 albums to date and played more than 1,800 concert dates in seven countries. Their songs have received 40 TV placements, appearing on “How I Met Your Mother,” “Criminal Minds,” “Parenthood,” “Nashville,” “House,” “Justified” and more.

Advance tickets for the concert are $7 for Hope students, $15 for members of the college’s faculty and staff, and $18 for the community.  Tickets will be $25 on the day of the show.
