So many legendary touring acts continue to play and perform on the fortune of their loyal fans coming to see their shows. Stalwarts of the scene know that getting on the road and playing as often as possible is the lifeblood of continuity. Year after year, summer after summer, fans travel to see Phish, Widespread Panic, whatever incarnation of the Dead, and on and on. It’s refreshing when great lesser-worshiped acts get their chance to build a fan base, especially with the support of old mainstay bands.
The prog/rock quartet TAUK will wrap up a successful 2013 bringing their unique and powerful live show to audiences along the East Coast from November through December. Highlights include performances at the Official Phish After-Party in NYC with Fikus on December 28th and a New Year's Eve show in Baltimore at the 8x10 with Pigeons Playing Ping Pong.
The rock/fusion quartet TAUK announces today they will hit the road this August and September to play select cities in the Midwest to support of their latest LP, Homunculus, released April 30th. TAUK will play in St.Louis, Missouri; Columbia, Missouri; Urbana, Illinois; Chicago, Illinois; Ann Arbor, Michigan; Columbus, Ohio; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and more to be announced soon.
The rock/fusion quartet TAUK announces they will return to the stage with the legendary group, Robert Randolph & The Family Band for three select dates this summer. The shows are set for Aug. 2 at the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C., Aug. 9 at The Wilbur Theatre in Boston, and Aug 10 at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY.
The rock/fusion quartet TAUK releases their much-anticipated LP, Homunculus today, April 30. In celebration of the release, both MSN Music and GuitarWorld are streaming the album in full all week. The NYC group joined forces with Grammy-Winning Producer Robert Carranza (Mars Volta, Jack Johnson) to craft their first entirely instrumental full-length album.
If musical jams are your thing, a quick rising band, TAUK has all the jam, jelly, marmalade and preserves to suit any jamband fan’s tastes as witnessed on their LP, Homunculus. If the genre is rock, fusion, jazz, bluegrass, country, classical, rap, pop or psychedelic; musicians produce a “jam” for whatever their genre may be.
With TAUK, it's best to ignore the foursome's wordy pandering (We really wanted this new album to be a statement... Homunculus has everything to do with how we as humans interpret ourselves and our surroundings. It acknowledges the inherent duality that exists between our mental and physical beings and to me that's where it relates to our creative process... Cool, Zhongfeng, now enough with the koans, please) and just listen to the music. Yes, these fellows are formally trained one-and-all.
