With an enduring affinity for the versatility of the nylon string guitar, Scot Taber brings his own interpretive flavor to a diverse musical repertoire, whether he is measuring the pulsating rhythms of flamenco, providing a tour of South American musical idioms, presenting time-honored pieces from the classical canon, or navigating through Jazz standards from the Great American Songbook.

Scot studied Classical and Flamenco guitar under the acclaimed guitarists Adam Schydlower of Gitano and the Desert Prophets and Stephan Schyga of Tel Arc Records' celebrated "Jazzmenco" act La Vienta. At the age of only seventeen, he was performing flamenco in the U.S. and Mexico as a soloist and accompanist for dancers in the Spanish dance troupe Danzas Espanolas. Scot then pursued a career as a soloist and collaborator in his own groups Taber & Garibay, and later with his southern California-based duo Paper Moon. A yen for latin guitar has been at the forefront of his every musical endeavor, as a typical performance includes works by Heitor Villa-Lobos, Francisco Tarrega, Antonio Lauro, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Luiz Bonfa, Augustin Barrios, Sabicas, Paco Pena, and Paco de Lucia, along with anonymous pieces from the catalog of international folk music.

Scot has appeared as a soloist and in duos and ensembles in the most distinguished theaters and venues, performing original and traditional material for such notables as actor Levar Burton, journalist Sam Donaldson, comedian David Spade, chef Julia Child, and former president George W. Bush, among others.

Scot has performed at Jazz clubs, festivals, ballrooms, and coffeehouses throughout the Southwestern United States, from San Francisco, Dallas, Phoenix, Las Vegas and Santa Fe, to Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. In the San Diego area, the list includes such venues as Spreckels Theatre, The Four Seasons, The Grand Del Mar Resort, Balboa Park, The Lodge at Torrey Pines, California Center for the Arts in Escondido, La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club, The U.S. Grant Hotel, La Valencia Hotel, The Belly Up, San Diego ArtWalk, among many others.

Scot performed during the cocktail hour at our wedding reception. He was punctual, dressed appropriately, and professional. Scot's music was beautiful and our guests still rave about him. On my wedding day, I appreciated a vendor that I did not need to worry about. He created a wonderful ambience and we were so grateful for his services; I would highly recommend him for any type of event.

I hired Soct to play during the cocktail hour of my wedding. I unfortunately did not get to hear in play due to photos, but everyone loved him. People told me that the music he played could not have set the mood of the wedding more perfectly. The owner of the house said no music on the iPod could have done what Scot did. From the pictures I saw, he was dressed very professionally and the overall look of the equipment was perfect. I am so happy that we decided to hire Scot and I highly recommend him!
