The 1904 Concert Hall in Jacksonville Florida was pack to the roof as Progressive Rocker TAUK took the whole place on magical instrumental journey.
TAUK just released their much-anticipated LP Collisions on July 22nd to rave reviews. They have a great signature sound that is rock, funk and explosion of jazz thrown in here and there..The 4 piece band but on a stellar show with the full house jamming to the band funky beats from Matt Jalbert (Guitar) Charlie Dolan (Bass) Alric “A.C.” Carter (Keyboards/Organ) Isaac Teel (Drums).Their hard-driving melodic fusion is contagious.
From the start of their set,..you just get the grove that start in your soul and ignites a funk fuse that runs up the spin as your head starts to sway back and forth like a bobble head on a car dashboard.And from then on you have become a fan.With each false ending they launched back in sucking every listener in the place deeper into the powerful violence of the music.From slower, spacey sections to upbeat, funky dance grooves, each song kept its own identity firmly intact. TAUK does a fabulous job of sucking you into each grove and then twisting it into another dimension, like a black hole sucking all the music matter of the air and spitting out their instruments. With each false ending they launched back in sucking every listener in the place deeper into the powerful violence of the music.
Each member of TAUK brings his own piece to the band, but its the cohesive fusion of all four members (keys, drums, bass, and guitar) that add a contemplative depth to every song.The skillful fusion of sounds combined with swelling bursts of emotion, crafty, energetic build-ups and progressive song structure culminates in a strong, tightly stitched sound.If you are ready for something different, something new and exciting, something solid and fun, then check out TAUK.
