LIVE WITH BALCONYTV CHARLESTON FROM THE HANGOUT FESTIVAL IN GULF SHORES, ALABAMA
PRESENTED BY RENE RUSSELL
BROUGHT TO YOU IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE MUSIC INITIATIVE AND KAISER REALTY
Meet Tauk, a band that delivers a unique blend of funk, jazz, pop and rock with a fresh, experimental spirit. Since forming earlier this decade, the NYC-based group has built an impressive DIY buzz scoring opening gigs for O.A.R, MOE., Robert Randolph & the Family Band, 311, Tea Leaf Green, a set at Gathering of the Vibes (alongside Buddy Guy and Bob Weir & RatDog) and a feature on Fuse TV. Tauk's summer lineup includes Bonnaroo, Hangout Music Fest, Summer Camp Music Fest, Great South Bay Music Fest, and Peach Festival with The Allman Brothers.
The band's new album of entirely instrumental tracks, "Pull Factors" was recorded with Dave Natale (Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac), and mixed by Grammy-winning producer Robert Carranza (Jack Johnson, Mars Volta).
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.
With a new album under their belt and an impressive summer lineup of shows, Tauk plans to continue to push the envelope of their musical vision, and bring that vision to all those who are listening around the country.
