At Nashville’s elusive Exit/In an intimate crowd of fans and new faces surrounded the stage for TAUK’s opening performance for Perpetual Groove in October. The bands collaboration compliments each members unique skills and style as they poetically flow through each techno-instrumental masterpiece. To say that they have potential is an understatement. We had the opportunity to see them perform at Bonnaroo this summer and they continued to grow.
“We are just so excited about how successful the set went. We debuted a new song called ‘Afro-Tonic’ tonight and, there seemed to be positive feedback.” TAUK said collectively after the show backstage. “By the time we played ‘She’s So Heavy’ the audience was involved. It was awesome. Nashville is a great historical music town and we are happy to contribute to the music scene here. It’s exciting to see the crowd step forward as they listen to us.”
TAUK will be making there way to Knoxville, TN on November 3rd, 2012.
We also heard that they made a stop last time they were in town at Nashville’s very own Prince’s Chicken – which they told NMG was one of their favorite places to stop while traveling through this area.
Tauk is Charlie Dolan (Bass), Alric “A.C.” Carter (Keyboard-Organ), Matt Jalbert (Guitar), and newest addition Isaac Teel joining in early 2012 (Drums). While their tunes are adventurous in scope, the band’s origins are humble. Dolan, Carter, and Jalbert met as teenagers in middle school and instantly connected over a shared passion for music. They continued to write songs and remained close friends while attending different colleges all over the country. Armed with degrees from some of the top music universities and conservatories in the nation, the band hit the road in the Fall of 2010, playing nearly 40 shows on a national tour with Robert Randolph and The Family Band, moe., and other legendary acts.
The four-piece puts equal energy into their live shows as they do their recordings. The unique chemistry and relaxed-focus of Tauk’s performance is undeniable, but their ability to create immensely melodic and emotional music without a vocal lead is what is sure to captivate the ears of music lovers from across all genres. The future is certainly looking bright for this talented and ambitious quartet.
