Holopaw is an American indie band from Gainesville, Florida. The band was named after the town of Holopaw in Osceola County, Florida, although none of the members of the band have ever lived there. One of its members, John Orth, joined up with Modest Mouse frontman Isaac Brock and others in 2002 to release the album Sharpen Your Teeth under the band name Ugly Casanova. Another member, Michael Johnson (Ape School), went on to join Kurt Heasley's Lilys.

John Orth and Jeff Hays played as a duo for some time before joining with Michael Johnson, Ryan Gensemer, and Tobi Echevarria as Holopaw for the first two albums. Johnson, Gensemer and Echevarria relocated to Philadelphia. Holopaw now consists of Orth, Patrick Quinney, Jeff McMullen, Matt Radick, and Ryan Quinney.

  • From the Holopaw Website: "depending on when you ask us holopaw is or has been or will be somewhere on the continuum of nothing-comic adaptation-songwriting duo-play a sometime show duo-long distance recordathon-actual record-recording rock band-actual touring rock band with shows in different towns that people come to and everything....right now we’re around the actual recording touring rock band end of that spectrum....well maybe not touring but we’re working on getting back to that...."
