THE TAYLOR BROTHERS

We had become fans of country music and show business in general at a very young age. Probably sparked by our many family vacations in Nashville, Tn, where we saw lots of shows, musicians & singers, met many country stars, attended TV tapings of Hee Haw, and enjoyed going to the Opryland USA theme park. Genesee, MI., where we grew up, is near Flint, MI., with lots of musicians from all over. We were exposed to music often. We started playing guitars at age 12 and took piano lessons. We began songwriting by age 16, and made some demos of our original songs and started pitching them to famous singers, in hopes of getting some recorded. We started our first band at age 16. Our first gig was a friends Birthday party. We played some country music, and old rock stuff like Stairway to Heaven and Proud Mary.

Next we performed at Church dances. Our first paid gig was a girl scout dance. We made $15. 00 each. Then we started performing as a duo, hoping to be the next Everly Bros. We were winning talent shows left and right. The most prestigious being Chesaning Showboat, in Chesaning, MI., which helped kick start our local presence as entertainers. The Country Boy Eddie Show in Birmingham, Alabama was our first TV show. We hooked up with the this show while visiting our relatives in Alabama. Our Mom is from Vinemont, just north of Cullman. We love it down there. Talk about country. At age 18 we put together another band and moved on to VFW Halls, & EAGLES Clubs. Town festivals, county fairs and weddings came next. By this time our musical style had become mostly country. By 1985, we were the opening act for many country stars who came to perform locally, such as Eddie Rabbit, Marie Osmond, Mickey Gilley and Charlie Daniels. We also became concert promoters, and produced shows with Exile and Boxcar Willie. Our fans had grown into a fan club of about a thousand. We put out a newsletter regularly to promote shows at the many Country Nightclubs that we were booked at. We recorded 3 original songs in a local studio, and received some local radio airplay. For 9 years, from 1980 to 1998 we were performing music on the weekends and worked at the family business, Taylor Steel Co. during the week.

DCM Review
   A fun show to watch. Joe and Jack really know how to set an audience at ease and take them right along as they follow their hearts in country music. The hardest part is figuring which is Joe and Which is Jack....
