Brutal Juice
Officially disbanded in 1996 in the middle of a tour, but they got together in 2000 and now occasionally play together for fun.


Disbanded in 1996 when frontman Aden Holt (’93) began concentrating full time on releasing other records with his label, OneTon. In 2001 he stopped releasing records and began concentrating on his design studio.

There were a number of other bands in Denton in the ’90s and before, just as there are a number of bands from Denton still today. This story and list are meant to be a sampling of that talent. Thank you to all the musicians who make our university and town a fun place to live.
