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.

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

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!
