Taylor Hicks: a look back at some great 2011 performances

As we wait for Taylor Hicks to release his new CD and for the band to hit the road in 2012, let’s look back at some of the great videos taken by fans in 2011.

In May 2011, Taylor Hicks put together a 2 week mini-tour of the Northeast with gigs in PA, NY, ME, NJ, OH and MA. His band included the terrific Brian Less, Brandon Peeples, Leif Bondarenko, David Keith, Sam Gunderson and Jeff Lopez. We were treated to some great performances during this mini-tour.

This was a rare two hour show with an intermission, but the most exciting thing about the show was Taylor singing Van Morrison’s “Rough God Goes Riding” in full. As we saw in the ensuing shows, Taylor seemed very affected by the April 2011 tornado destruction in Alabama, and he chose a number of songs that illustrated his concern for his home state. This was one of our favorites and although he only sang it a handful of times in the next couple of days, it was just wonderful. The accompaniment from the band was just terrific. This one is a treasure.

At Hershey Park, Taylor did two shows. The resident Cocoa Rhythm Factory Band sat in for both shows during “Love the One You’re With” and they made this song lots of fun for the audience. Chocolate, roller coasters and music – priceless!

Taylor Hicks singing My Funny Valentine

Way back, way back, way back on June 2, 2007, Taylor Hicks and his band performed at the Elvis Presley Festival in Tupelo, Mississippi.

On a personal note, I was born on Valentine’s Day and my father used to sing My Funny Valentine to me from as long back as I can remember, so this little song means a lot to me. Tonight Taylor Hicks is doing a private concert for the American Moving and Storage Association Convention in Las Vegas. Maybe he will sing this song tonight, maybe not, but we do know that he sang it that day in Tupelo as a tag in Hold On To Your Love.

Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone from Taylor Hicks Fan Video.

On April 17, 2011, Taylor Hicks and his band performed at the Culture Fest in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

I love this video of a young child jamming with his saxophone during the concert. Enjoy!

As we wait for Taylor Hicks to release his new CD and for the band to hit the road in 2012, let’s look back at some of the great videos taken by fans in 2011.

In February 2011, Taylor Hicks got his band together for a three day tour through Florida and Mississippi. Joining Brian Less (keyboards), Brandon Peeples (bass), Leif Bondarenko (drums), Sam Gunderson (guitar) and Jeff Lopez (sax, flute) was David Keith on percussion.

I had been to Tunica the night before and heard Taylor sing “Why Can’t We Live Together” at the B3 organ. What a great surprise! So when he headed over to the B3 in Biloxi, I got my camera out and ready to record this new and exciting addition to the setlist!

It combines the soul music we love so much with a blues infusion of harmonica and tags by Howlin’ Wolf and Van Morrison. Video by Lh1100

Taylor Hicks started January 2011 with a jam cruise. In February 2011, he got the band together for a three day tour through Florida and Mississippi. Joining Brian Less (keyboards), Brandon Peeples (bass), Leif Bondarenko (drums), Sam Gunderson (guitar) and Jeff Lopez (sax, flute) was David Keith on percussion. “Ain’t Gonna Hurt Nobody” at the Vinyl Music Hall in Pensacola FL on February 24, 2011, was a big fan favorite in 2011. This may have been the last time he played it in 2011. Bring this song back, Taylor! We love it! Video by Sweettfan

Taylor Hicks covers Van Morrison’s “Rough God Goes Riding”.

After the terrible devastation that tornados wrecked in his home state of Alabama (and other states), Taylor Hicks hit the road for a couple of weeks of pre-arranged back to back concert dates in the Northeast. He did not forget what his friends and family were facing back home. Taylor sang several covers that brought home to his audience just how heartbreaking the damage was for him and his Alabama-based band.

“Rough God Goes Riding” sung by Taylor in Pitman, New Jersey on May 12, 2011, clearly spoke to us about the storm destruction and his anguish. Video by Diane

Taylor Hicks covers Billy Joel’s “New York State of Mind”

One of my favorite songs that Billy Joel wrote and recorded is “New York State of Mind.” I am proud of my city and my state and this song says it all. This is one of the best videos I found of Billy Joel singing this song. My friend, Richie Cannata, plays the sax in this video.

At a fundraising event for Hannah Homes in Leeds AL on May 10, 2008, Taylor covered this song. At the time, it was a veiled hint that Taylor was about to star as the Teen Angel in the Broadway revival of Grease. I went to heaven during this song!

Come back to New York soon, Taylor!
