The Holloways were a four-piece indie-rock band from North London.
David Jackson and Bryn Fowler established the beginnings of the band, finding Rob Skipper at a local live music venue. They would meet later to jam together, playing in future drummer Dave Danger's room (situated above the club). After an hour of jamming, Jackson and Skipper had six songs with guitar and fiddle parts and harmonizing vocals. Impressed by what he heard from the three, Dave Danger then joined the band.
The Holloways announced in 2011, that they are to split, following a farewell tour from April–May.
On 23 May 2011, The Holloways played their last ever gig at the Relentless Garage on Holloway Road in London. During the gig the band reunited with previous band members to play a 70min set of songs from throughout their career.
Dave Danger has since been working for a global construction products company based out of the midlands and Paris.
