About The Band
Like most of the other Bellville bands, the four members met when they were in DF Malan Highschool. But that’s where the similarities end. TeeJay and Odendaal experimented with some music of their own. TeeJay and Odendaal approached Gerdus and Reyno to join them in a band. Having been booked for a tour, the band had to come up with a name literally overnight. They drove past a New Holland tractor and liked the idea of it. The name also alludes to the post- “colonial” Dutch African Colony that has spawned the new South Africa. From there the name New Holland.
New Holland has been noted as one of SA’s most popular bands on the live scene since their debut in December 2007. They will introduce the new album with a nationwide tour from 3 to 14 October. More info on dates and venues: www.NewHollandBand.co.za
“The reality is that they’re going to be big…you know what that means. They’re never coming back. It’s up to you whether that matters, whether they’ve got something for you to believe in. Either way, they’ve got nothing to prove.” – Jess Henson.
