Alonzo Holliday

Alonzo Holliday aka Frank Turek (Saxophones) Has been active in the Portland music scene for the past fifteen years. He is co-founder and artistic director to Portland's original surf instrumental band Shutdown 66, originator of the circus jazz, avant schmaltz sax and drum duo The Clown School Dropouts, and has a four year tenure as organ player for the sixties garage sound band Lady Kensington and the Beatlords. You can sometimes hear Alonzo practicing late at night at Frank's art studio space, ubu studio, at the State Theater building in Portland, Maine.

”With this new album by this new-to-the-scene trio we are blessed with a sharp clear breath of February air into what has become the moist lungy softness of musical complacency.”

Gori Tzadek, liner notes to Mystic Out-Bop Review debut

“These cats can knock craters in your skull.”

Al Diamon, Casco Bay Weekly

“Holliday's music is full of significance and offers an ingenious glimpse at where a creative musical mind can wander.”

Frank Rubolino, Cadence Jazz Magazine
