SHINY & BRITE! is the new Christmas music CD from The Taters. This is the 9th release from the band and this time out it's non-stop holiday! Featuring several new originals, lots of classics, and a few surprises! The release party will be at The Tin Pan, and reservations are recommended.
The Taters have played the Richmond and central VA area for over 17 years, with 7 CDs of original tunes out. Starting out as an alt-country trio, with acoustic gtr, bass and percussion, we’ve expanded to a quartet (electric guitar & drums), and the music has moved more in a power-pop direction over the last 5 years, though still lots of early country influences. Our biggest emphasis is on melody and vocal harmonies, making us a hit with crowds who grew up in the 60s & 70s and loved AM and early FM radio. The band has been included on several tribute albums, including tributes to Jellyfish, Squeeze, and Rick Nelson.
WHAT’S ALL THIS ABOUT TATERS?
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”.
“American roots-rock with thoroughly modern, totally hip sensibilities”
– Billboard Magazine
“The Taters soar through a catalog of Americana and ’60s-era pop influences”
– Richmond Times-Dispatch
“Think ‘Beatles For Sale’, if Marty Robbins were a primary influence instead of Carl Perkins “
– No Depression Magazine
“Picture ELO gone Americana, and you’ll get the idea”
– Mike Lidskin, TWIRL Radio
“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”
