We have put together a set of 32 songs (2.5 hours) of James Taylor's wonderful music. Played primarily in the style of James' "One Man Band" show we incorporate guitar, saxophones, flutes, congas/bongos, light percussion, and great 3 part harmonies to create a smooth sound.
We typically have sold out shows with seating or fire code limits (typically 50-60 person venues), and had record breaking attendance at Daveste Vinyard with 400+ people. Located in the Lake Norman North Carolina area, Fourth Creek Band is available for music venues and special events in this region. Please email if you are interested in a James Taylor tribute event for your club, party, etc.
A nice thing about our show is that it is very "scalable", such that we can do either:
1) Minimum set = two people (one guitar, 2 part vocals). Appropriate for very intimate settings.
2) Three person "core" setup (one guitar, light percussion, flute, three part harmony), for maximum flexibility, intimate or rocking.
3) Four person setup adding saxophone and flute duets creates a great, more powerful gig setup for wine bars, vinyards, etc.
4) Five person (full band) setup adding congas/bongos for a very powerful show that can rock out a full theater, convention center, etc.
Price according to the desired size and whether we need to bring our own sound system, sound engineer, etc.
All musicians are extremely experienced and either full time or part time professional with multiple other bands also. We worked hard every week for 6 months before playing the first gig in December 2011 to be sure we had this right. Every show so far has been a great success and people love it.
Recently we received this very nice comment from Daveste Vinyard regarding our performance there in July:
"Since the opening of the Daveste' Vineyards tasting room in September 2008, I have been challenged with the creation of winery events that will appeal to many ages plus attract new and old customers alike. Live music has been an easy way to increase business and introduce people to our locally produced award winning wines. In retrospect, I now realize that booking talented yet local musicians tends to bring in a following of friends and family. The Charlotte, NC area is full of talented musicians.
Looking back on 2012 events at Daveste' Vineyards, I remember the one event that totally took me by surprise. On a hot Saturday in the summer, Fourth Creek Band performed "A Tribute to James Taylor".
I have known all of these musicians for sometime and have seen them perform on various occasions as a solo or duo act, but never with James Taylor tunes as the main focus. To everyone's surprise, close to 400 people showed up for the event that was held in our outdoor pavilion and grounds. This was one of our busiest days since we opened the doors to the public.
"A Tribute to James Taylor" was a huge success and a money maker for Daveste' Vineyards. The musicians are solid with heart and soul. I highly recommend this show to any business looking for some of the best music in the area. Daveste' is looking forward to hosting the event not once but on several dates in the year 2013."
