A Choired Taste is a collection of musicians that has performed with many of the “who’s who” in music. After focusing initially on recording original music
(8 released CD’s are now found at Target, Best Buy, iTunes, Verizon, Rhapsody, iSound, and other locations), the band is now focusing on taking their sound on the road.
An 8-piece band (guitars, bass, drums, horns, and vocals), A Choired Taste crosses multiple genres of music (rock n’ roll, blues, country, folk, blue grass, reggae, and Latin) and regularly attracts diverse audiences at their performances (young and old, traditional and modern, typically 300-500 people).
“…The band's classic rock sound extends beyond the confines of any one genre… clearly it works for A Choired Taste.”
