When Craig Evans and Brad Tucker started singing together in the early 1980′s, neither could have guessed how long that partnership would last. With 7 CDs of music out – the most recent a Halloween project titled “DON’T SCREAM!” (Oct 2015), they continue to mine their collective experience to craft songs with unforgettable hooks and pop melodies, and to add classic tunes to their repertoire that reflect a wide range of interests and influences. Layers of acoustic and electric guitars mix with 3 and 4 part harmonies to give each song its own personality while the lead vocals and songwriting pull it all together into a very satisfying whole.


Writing in Billboard magazine, the internationally published “bible” of the music industry, 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”.

The Taters soar through a catalog of Americana and ’60s-era pop influences that color their own material brightly and tightly
– Richmond Times- Dispatch

The Taters’ Menagerie is full of noteworthy hooks and melodies as the band crosses genres and eras exhibiting their obvious Americana and classic pop influences. All in all, it’s obvious that The Taters want you to know that their music can be both memorable in concert as well as “Fun at Home”. If you’ve never listened to The Taters’ Menagerie, listen to it. If you’ve already listened to it . . . listen again.
– LA Examiner (Will Phoenix, reviewer)

“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

“This demonic disc is an entertaining mix of macabre music. So check out The Taters’ “Don’t Scream!“ You might find it poisonously perfect for your “Monsters’ Holiday”.
– (Will Phoenix, reviewer)
