Meet TAUK, a band that delivers a unique blend of rock-fusion with a fresh experimental spirit. Since forming earlier this decade, the NYC-based group has built an impressive DIY buzz scoring opening gigs for moe., Robert Randolph & the Family Band, Tea Leaf Green, and sets at Bonnaroo, Gathering of the Vibes, Hangout Music Fest, Peach Festival with The Allman Brothers, Summercamp, and Floyd Fest.
“Tauk’s instrumental music melds genres and styles, creating a hard-charging, often melodic fusion that – thanks to a penchant for improv – offers limitless possibilities” – The Washington Post
“Tauk is an incredibly impressive ensemble of talent. The four-piece band carries an incredible groove that meshes jazz and funk with a fresh pop sound.” – Relix Magazine
TAUK is Matt Jalbert (Guitar), Charlie Dolan (Bass), Alric “A.C.” Carter (Keyboard-Organ), and Isaac Teel (Drums). Forming in middle school, a majority of TAUK’s members have been playing together for over a decade. The group experimented with their sound throughout the years both individually while studying at top music universities and conservatories, and together as a band – always working to find their ideal sound. It wasn’t until 2012 with the addition of drummer, Isaac Teel, and the realization the band could build a fan base around a completely instrumental act, that the pieces fell into place.
