Business is a California Central Coast band initially formed in 2003 with
the idea of specializing in the authentic performance of what is arguably the best music
of all time: 1960s rock 'n' roll. The members of Unfinished Business- David
Hollister on drums, Jim Witt on bass and vocals, Ben Davis on rhythm guitar
and vocals, and Ed Miller on lead guitar and vocals- all played in different
local bands in California, unknown to one another, during the '60s. Although
the muse was constantly whispering in their collective ears, they all
eventually set their music careers aside to pursue "real jobs" and
Well, the '60s are now long gone, but the members of Unfinished Business
still have a passion for the music of that era and their "unfinished
business" is to pick up where they all left off "way back
when" by playing in a band again and performing the hits of
the '60s by the great artists of the era, ranging from The Animals to
The Zombies and including The Beatles, The Beach Boys, The Rolling
Stones, and various Motown artists. Long live '60s rock 'n' roll!
Unfinished Business has been both a headliner and a support act for national
recording artists and has provided the
featured entertainment for literally hundreds of local charity benefits,
community events, festivals, and private functions. These professionals
always bring the highest standard to every performance with complete sound
and lighting systems, incidental music, appropriate stage dress, and a
rehearsed show with a minimum of talk, a comfortable and enjoyable audience
rapport, and an emphasis on great dance music. As you sprint to the dance
floor, you'll find yourself singing along with every song!
Whatever the event or venue, be it a wedding, a car show, private party,
festival, county fair, reunion, winery, country club, resort, concert, farmers'
market, or anything else, consider "Unfinished Business" your choice
for musical entertainment.
