About the band
Nathan Taylor & Friends explode with rich sound and purely blended talent. This talent is bathed in a wide range of vintage American jazz, blues & roots music, born of the soul of the Heartland (and the most fortunate front porches of Canton, Illinois).
From classic roots songs and blues of the delta to early New Orleans jazz and Nathan Taylor originals, their audiences dance to soulful spins on the old styles mixed with new music as they are transported to simpler times, past and present.
While Nathan Taylor plays plenty of gigs solo and with other talented musicians, his original music shines all over in regular performances with his core group, Nathan Taylor Band. This all-star group is Adam Kimbrell on upright bass, Tom Stoner on trumpet, Larry Harms on Clarinet, Jason Brannon on drums and Nathan Taylor on guitar, harmonica and vocals.
