Friends for more than 20 years, Steve Pike and Jonnie Olivo hooked up on a music project in early 2010 to see where it would go. Then, Jeff Knepper, who is also a personal friend of Steve's, was added as the drummer. After only a few hours of rehearsing; the guys knew they were a band - and they knew they were on to something special. After the 3 of them got together for a few jam sessions, their talents merged in a very natural way that made it evident they should pursue this project.
In the summer of 2011, Ron Parker, a life-long friend of Steve & Jonnie, was added to the line up on bass, and Jonnie moved over to lead guitar. Ron sat in with the band a couple of times in 2010 when they were doing their first gigs, but now he's in full-time.
Hollow Point has played gigs in the greater Houston area since the summer of 2010, rockin' the night away with original and cover tunes of some of radio's greatest hits from the last 2 decades.
