Taylor Hicks Goes to Washington via TX and AL

Written by Louise/4Tay, covering Taylor’s shows in the months of March and April. Tour photos by Louise/4Tay.

We are well aware that it was Mr. Smith who went to Washington but Mr. Hicks will travel to the state of Washington by way of Texas and Alabama as he rounds out his tour schedule for the months of March and April.

First stop, TEXAS! The Ride 2 Recovery Kick-off Concert will be headlined by Taylor Hicks and his band on March 28th at the Embassy Suites in San Marcos, Texas.  This is a charity event, whose purpose is to raise money for bicycles and other training devices to assist in the rehabilitation of our nation’s wounded veterans, begins with the ride participants arriving at the Embassy Suites in the late afternoon.  A dinner for the veterans and guests of the American Legion is next.  At 6:45 pm, Taylor Hicks will participate in a VIP reception for donors to the charity who will have a chance to meet and mingle with Mr. Hicks and photo ops are possible.  The event then goes to the main ballroom of the Embassy Suites where the band will perform beginning at 7:30 pm.

Last week, TaylorHicksNews on Tap  posted a heartwarming article about the organization.

The link to that article is here:

The Texas Challenge Information page and the link to purchase tickets is here:

Texans have patiently waited for a long time to have the chance to see Taylor perform live.  March 28th they will not only see Taylor and his great band, they will be helping a great cause.  It is expected that this event will sell out so if you are planning to go, buy your tickets now!

Culture Fest has drawn up to 15,000 visitors for it’s day devoted to the awareness of diverse cultures in music, art and food.  Two stages will be set up on the football field for musical entertainment.  During the day on Stage 2, local and regional acts will perform. On Stage 1, musical acts both local and more widely known will grace the stage until Taylor Hicks appears to close the Festival.  Culture Fest ends at 6 pm with Taylor and his band taking the stage to close out the day of festivities.

On to the Pacific Northwest.

After appearing at two charity events (Ride 2 Recovery and Culture Fest) Taylor Hicks and his band move to the great Northwest to perform one show at the Snoqualmie Ballroom of the Snoqualmie Casino and Resort. Set among the evergreen forests approximately forty minutes east of greater Seattle, this stop on the tour takes Taylor across the country on a tour that some say never ends.

Here is the information about the Snoqualmie Casino Ballroom and where to buy tickets.


Casino Location:  37500 Southeast North Bend Way, Snoqualmie, WA

Phone:               425-888-1234

Seating capacity: 1,000

Taylor’s performances at casino settings have historically sold out and have been rated among his best live shows.  For beautiful scenery, a luxurious venue and live music by a dynamic performer like Taylor Hicks, this show is not to be missed!

May is filling up fast with shows (at the time of publication) May 1 in Huntsville, AL; May 5 in New Orleans; May 8 in Ogunquit, Me; May 14 in Greensburg, PA; May 16 in Glens Falls, NY; May 27 in Coos Bay, OR and May 29 in Manistee, MI.  Get in shape for MAY by seeing Taylor in March and April.  Great live music, beautiful scenery, friends and travel.  This IS the tour that never ends! Now only if Mr. Hicks would go to Washington!

  1. If the Culture Fest is from the 1st to the 6th of April , how will Taylor’s appearance on the 17th of April be handled.? Seems there might be a date mix-up on someone’s calendar or else Taylor is at Holt as an extension of this Fest.
    Have been waiting to find out how these dates co-ordinate………

    • The April 17th date has been confirmed by the organization handling the event in Alabama. When asked about the other April dates and which one Taylor would perform, the 17th was confirmed as his appearance date.

      Thanks for reading!

      April 1 -6 are not the dates. You must be mistaking the time for the dates:

      “The date is April 17th, 2011 from 1:00-6:00.”

      Still wondering why the “Year of Alabama Music” site says April 2.

  3. Thanks, Louise! Great to see the Taylor Hicks Band back on the road this spring, and including benefit & community events in the schedule. Now, I wonder if “Ore” will have a food booth at Culture Fest?! Could be a tasty event!

      You’re very welcome!
      The question about Ore would be a great one to ask Taylor at the live chat tomorrow on UStream!!
