Taylor Hicks' Vimeos from Smith's Olde Bar

Taylor Hicks' performed in Atlanta, Georgia the weekend before this one at Smith's Olde Bar. There have been many enthusiastic replies regarding the performance he and his band gave the crowd so I've hit several of the videos to watch what the buzz is about.

This particular video, surprisingly is one of my favorite. I am not in love with the song presented on the latest Hicks' CD, "The Distance" but I do like this rendition. Hicks' playful delivery, the minimalist delivery with the acoustic guitars and harmonica really work well. I must add the videographer did a great job, there's fantastic audio, no camera shake.

Taylor Hicks' "Wedding Day Blues"

"Seven Mile Breakdown" another good vid and song that transfers well into this minimalist format. Watching Hicks carefully on that tambourine for pointers... I'm going to send this video out to the guys and see what they'd think about covering a version of it for the City concert coming up in the Fall. I think our singer, "R." could do it some justice.

    Oh yeahhhh, thats what ahm talkin' bout. That vid of Taylor doing Seven Mile Breakdown was awesome. Thats what he does best, he can get down and dirty with a song and that voice of his all gravelly... doing it justice. Thanks for the vid. I had almost forgotten why I liked him but after watching that I remember very well.
