Taylor Hicks at the Paramount: A Pictorial Review

Photographs contributed by Nancy Nutile-McMenemy; http://www.photosbynanci.com/  Click on photos to enlarge.

When Taylor Hicks brought his band of six to the Paramount, he also brought the kind of honest, gritty music that Vermonters understand.  The blues rocked and the country had soul.  The photos tell the story; it was a darn good time.

Taylor Hicks and bass player Brandon Peeples.

Guitarist Sam Gunderson.

On the drums, Leif Bondarenko.

On sweet sax, Mr. Jeff Lopez.

On the keys, Brian Less.

At the Paramount, songs such as the rocking “Stay with Me” were delivered with conviction by the full band.  An acoustic performance of the original tune “Hell of a Day” was offered by Hicks solo, accompanied by his own guitar and harmonica.  The variety and intensity of the performances made for one Hell of a Night!

The Taylor Hicks band next appears at 7 Cedars Resort, Sequim, WA on 9/25.  The band will also be featured in the Epcot Eat to the Beat concert series in Orlando, FL on 10/9 and 10/10.  Details and ticket links on the concert page, accessed from the blog header.

    Ahh, there’s our handsome, brown-eyed man :-). Love the one of Jeff and Taylor together. Sam is just charming with that smile 🙂 What a wonderful group of musicians. Look at the intensity on Leif’s face as he watches Taylor for signals. What a wonderful tour this turned out to be.
