TAUK will play Snoe.down in Killington, VT on March 26th and Floyd Fest in Floyd, VA on July 25th. For updates, visit: www.taukband.com.The 4-piece is finishing up recording their first entirely instrumental full-length album at Los Angeles’s Brushfire Records Studio with Grammy-Winning Producer Robert Carranza (Jack Johnson, Mars Volta). The LP is due out Spring 2013 and the band plans to tour heavily on their new music.Tauk is Charlie Dolan (Bass), Alric "A.C." Carter (Keyboard-Organ), Matt Jalbert (Guitar), and Isaac Teel (Drums). Tauk’s latest full-length is a followup to their critically-acclaimed EP, "Pull Factors" (March 2012), also produced by Carranza and recorded with the legendary Dave Natale (Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac). 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.While their tunes are adventurous in scope, TAUK’s origins are humble.  Dolan, Carter, and Jalbert met as teenagers in middle school and instantly connected over a shared passion for music. Since playing together for a full decade and crafting their unique instrumental style, TAUK has scored opening gigs for O.A.R., moe., Robert Randolph & the Family Band, Perpetual Groove, 311, Tea Leaf Green and Toubab Krewe and spots of top festivals such as Bonnaroo, Gathering of the Vibes, The Hangout Music Festival, Summer Camp Music Festival and The Allman Brother's Peach Fest.Please head to www.taukband.com for more updates.
