Fred Holliss has produced numerous chapbooks of poetry.

Rodney Guitarsplat has performed with many bands including Sacred Heart of Elvis, and has two CDs to his name. He has his own Myspace site.

Richard Sixto was a founding member of both Difference Engine and the High Rollers and now maintains his chops playing in front of the 4th St. Liquor Store.



Coming together out of the '90's performance scene in Calgary, Holliss & Associates have held down a 3-set all-nighter in a Calgary bar, headlined a poetry fest in Lethbridge, been booed (but not off stage!) at South Country Fair, and generally messed around the southern Alberta poetry/perfomance/music scene since their inception.

Fred's incisive, political and occasionally erotic poetry is complemented by Rich's current-event-charged freestyling and Rodney's stories of zombies, aliens and Elvis.

With Rodney's patented loop-sample distorted rhythmic & lead guitar sound stylings and Rich's street-rich sax playing, the result is a funky, jazzy, poetry experience.

Holliss & Associates were also the organizational core of the 2007 Elvis "tribute" cabaret, 'Dead Elvis' which featured poetry, performance, rock, roll, psychedelia, dancing girls and gospel.
