The Taters

“The Taters soar through a catalog of Americana and ’60s-era pop influences”

block-upcomingeventsThe Taters play an eclectic mix of roots rock, pop, country, skiffle & Americana, a sound that’s been compared favorably to a mixture of Everlys, Orbison, Beatles, and Nick Lowe. Writing in Billboard magazine, critic Gordon Ely described the Taters as “determinedly-and gleefully-forging a path with no limits or end in sight. This is music for which you’ve been waiting a long, long time… Without a trace of self-consciousness or pretension, the Taters draw up a formula that can rightly be claimed as their own”.    block-sounds


“Don't know the Taters? Pick up Taters Party to start, and then dive into the back catalog. You won't be sorry” - Alan Haber, Pure Pop Radio
“The crowd cheered, people danced, they absolutely saved our event!” Ron Carter. CEO, Children Incorporated
“We can't think of any group we would rather present on our stage”- Lou Gramann, Friends of the Rappahannock

“The connection between singer-bassist Craig Evans and guitarist Brad Tucker goes back more than 20 years. That kind of knowledge and interplay is responsible for the crisp harmonies and infectious hooks of the band's old school roots-pop”- Durham Herald-Sun
“Country roots-pop, dashed with the genius songwriting of 60's & 70's power-pop, like a curious, accidental mix of the Mavericks, the Everly Brothers, Roy Orbison and the Beatles” - CD Baby
