Taylor Hicks on Tour: Hello Connecticut, Hudson Valley and Moonlight in Vermont

As Taylor Hicks completes the taping of the Gulf Shores Special in Biloxi, Ms, his tour bus waits for him in Grand Junction, Colorado for his next stop on his Bad Ass Tour.  Facing a swing to Colorado followed by dates in Nevada, California and Florida that will take him to Labor Day weekend, Taylor’s fans wait excitedly in the Northeast to see his tour end as excitedly as they welcomed him at his first show at the Highline Ballroom in NYC on July 25th.

After a planned charity event in California, Taylor and his band of musicians will say hello to Connecticut on September 15th at Infinity Hall in Norfolk.  Nestled in the Northwest corner of the state, the theater is a cozy, historic and acoustically excellent venue to hear the soulful sounds of Taylor and his band.  Within a short driving distance from Philadelphia, New York City and Long Island, this is a venue and a show that should not be missed.  This excellent poster promoting the show says it all.  Blues, soul, rock and great musical presentation will delight audiences new and old.

The Hudson Valley in New York will be  filled with bright hues of the coming Fall season and it is a perfect backdrop for a musical event.  Making their way from Connecticut to New York’s Hudson Valley, the blue Prevost bus carrying Taylor and his band will arrive at their next destination: Westchester’s Best Musical Venue, the Tarrytown Music Hall in Tarrytown, New York for a September 16th show.  This show will put you in a perfect mood  for the musical feeling expressed in the following photo taken at Ram’s Head On Stage in Annapolis, Md. by macpolski.


Moonlight in Vermont takes us to the days in New England just before the frost hits the pumpkins and fallen leaves.  It’s riding in your convertible with the top down and a woolen hat on your head.  What better way to start the Fall season then to follow the bus from Connecticut to New York and then finally to Vermont for a September 18th show at the Paramount Theater in Rutland, Vermont.  The snow will not be on the mountains at Killington but the heat will be on at the Paramount.  Even the late, great Ray Charles found reason to sing a siren song beckoning the music traveller to come to Vermont.

Come to New England in the Fall and see the finishing touches on a tour that started out in Gotham and will end  in the land of Ben and Jerry’s, maple syrup and great musical venues that bring the best out of Taylor Hicks and all artists who venture there.  Maine in July gave us this.

New England can bring you the passion and artistry of Taylor Hicks’ music.  Make the trip.  It’s going to be an adventure.

  4. New England in the fall is truly an awesome sight. The scenery can only be enhanced by Taylor’s appearances in the area.

    Very nice piece.

    Great article and love the artwork & video. You all up there in the east are SO LUCKY to be getting even more shows!! It kills me that I’m going to be in NY just 4 days before one of the shows. How I wish I could just hang around, but it won’t work out this time.

  8. Ahhhh-words like “infinity” and “moonlight in Vermont” give such sweet images to the soul-and so is the music Taylor will bring to the area-with the leaves beginning to turn up there it should remind him of northern Alabama-making the music more sweet and soothing-

    Thanks for all your efforts on this site!!

    I am so excited to be going to New England in Sept. to see Taylor and his fans who have become friends. A trifecta for me: Taylor, friends and the beautiful Fall foliage of Rutland, Vt. Taylor is treating us very well this summer by performing all over the country and I plan to go whenever I can b/c you never know when the chance will come again!

    I am looking forward to this concert at Infinity Hall really bad LOL, it was a trial and error to be going there, got a bus ticket from Niagara Falls to the Foxwoods Casino to get there but when the date was changed to the15th instead of the 25, Greyhound would neither refund the tix or exchange it so I had to buy another tix plus I will be on a bus from 12:15pm the 14th to 9:25am the 15th hopefully I can get in to the room and shower and change before we leave for the show, we want to leave by 3 to catch Taylor’s bus arriving at the Hall.
