The NYC-based rock/fusion quartet TAUK announces today they will join the lineup of Yonder Mountain String Band's Harvest Music Festival to be held October 11-13th in Ozark, Arkansas. TAUK will play Saturday, October 13th at 8pm. The band has spent the past summer turning heads with their electrifying instrumental performances at Bonnaroo, Hangout Music Festival, Summer Camp Music Festival and The Allman Brother's Peach Fest.

Since their formation 10 years ago in middle school, TAUK has scored opening gigs for O.A.R., moe., Robert Randolph & the Family Band, 311, Tea Leaf Green and Toubab Krewe. The band just announced two upcoming shows with Perpetual Groove at NYC's acclaimed music venue, Brooklyn Bowl.
Tauk is breaking into the national music scene with the release of their new EP, "Pull Factors." The band's sound is a unique blend of funk, jazz, pop, and rock with a fresh, experimental spirit that has already attracted an early DIY buzz. Legendary sound engineer, Dave Natale (Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac), invited Tauk into his studio in late 2011 to record "Pull Factors." The band then teamed up with Grammy-winning producer Robert Carranza (Jack Johnson, Mars Volta) to harness the band's eclectic vision creating entirely instrumental new tracks.

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.
