Photo Focus:: Taylor Hicks, Brian Less and Cody Farris DO AC

By Louise Uznanski for Ontapblog

Taylor and the band walk onto the late night, mid-summer’s stage at the Blue Martini with energy and joy. Describing how he came to enter the American Idol contest and what it was like performing for Caesars in its properties around the country, Taylor seemed happy to be at the Jersey shore for a mini residency that lasted for ten shows over two weekends. Thanks to Bally’s and Caesars for bringing Taylor back to Atlantic city in such great style.

The late night show was full of great friends, lively surroundings and music laced with humor and creativity. Long-time fans and newly minted ones alike look forward to new music, new humor and another taste of an American Idol at the shores of the New Jersey coastline.

    Wow is the only word that comes to mind when looking at and reading your work! You girls are something else. I hope that Taylor is aware of your great loyalty and awesome talent when it comes to showcasing him. I also hope that Ontap is being used as the great public relations tool it is. Thanks for the day brightener.

    What great captures of the fun and talent that was on the Blue Martini stage! Taylor and the boys gave it their all. I really enjoyed my time in Atlantic City with my friends and I have Taylor to thank for bringing us together.

      Thanks, Sue. It was a great time. I loved both venues and with a three piece band it sounded like more. So glad you came all the way to NJ to witness the fun!

      It was a great time no matter how many times we went. It does make you want more. Hopefully in the near future we will be able to follow a tour of new music and/or see a ‘Vegas’ traveling show at several casinos around the country. Thanks for reading and commenting. Our pleasure to share.

      Thank you so much, Julia. We had a great, great time. I rarely go to the casinos in AC but for Taylor, no problem. It was smart for Caesar’s to have Taylor in AC. He gained a lot of new fans!

      • I am SO happy to hear of Tay gaining new fans – he definitely deserves that!!
