Get ready for an amazing show with FIRE & RAIN, The James Taylor Tribute Experience!

Greg brings years of experience playing in multiple acts and tribute bands with fantastic vocals and pro level guitar playing, including the James Taylor Tribute Experience at the Suncoast Casino, Las Vegas! This high quality full band show will have you believing it's 1975 at a theater watching James Taylor himself! Here's an excerpt from a review of a recent show:

“You never know what a tribute band is going to be like,” said Villager Bernadette Taverna. “But this band tonight was special. James Taylor's music tells a story and gives you a warm feeling. That's how I felt tonight. It was a throwback to another time.” Pitts and the band went into a stirring version of “Shower the People (You Love With Love).” Soon the audience was singing and clapping along. Greg Pitts has a soft voice with enough musical twang to comfortably fit in Taylor's vocal range.
“I don't try to imitate him or look like him but there are times I want to sound like him,” Pitts said after the show.
He covered such Taylor favorites as: “Fire and Rain,” “Mexico,” “Handy Man,” “You've Got a Friend” and “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You).” He even put down some down and dirty rocking blues on “Steamroller.”
Greg Pitts admits walking a fine artistic line by playing in a tribute band.
“It's tricky,” he said. “You have to respect the music and the artist. I don't want to over-sing. I want to catch the spirit of the music and what it means.”
Pitts and his family managed to accomplish that task and resurrect something else: a time, a place and a feeling that seemed long gone. It all came alive again in the folk and soft rock essence of James Taylor. - Tony Violanti, The Village News

Audiences are taken back to the early days when “Fire & Rain,” “Carolina in My Mind,” and “Sweet Baby James,” were taking the country by storm, yielding 13 top-ten albums in a career that would include a top ten CD in 2010 with “Live at the Troubadour.” The James Taylor Experience draws these same dedicated fans to celebrate the live performance of songs that make up the soundtrack of their lives. The full live concert performance also includes the rip-roaring, rocking tunes featured in James Taylor's early live shows like “Steamroller,” “Mexico,” “Honey Don't Leave LA,” and “How Sweet it Is (to be Loved by You).”

Given James Taylor's catalogue of 13 top ten albums and over 20 charted hits, there is plenty to like in The James Taylor Experience, including “Handy Man, “You've Got a Friend,” “Shower the People,” and JT's covers of the classic Buddy Holly's “Every Day” and the Drifters “Up on the Roof.”

This show can be booked as a solo, 3 or 4 piece or with the entire ensemble for the full-on James Taylor Experience!

Whether you're singing along to the songs you know by heart or dancing in the aisles with other pumped up fans, a night with FIRE & RAIN - The James Taylor Experience will be a night to remember.

This act is perfect for family friendly shows, corporate events, country clubs, theaters, casinos, fairs and more.
