Video - Taylor Scott Band w/ Nick Clark 

This video is from the WBJS Thanksgiving Concert on Nov 25, 2017 at The Sky Terrace Lounge in Casper WY, featuring The Taylor Scott Band w/ Nic Clark. The blue stage lights played hell with my video camera, so it looks kinda like the Blue Man Group or a 60's psychedelic experience. No matter, the talent from this band was excellent, and as you can see and hear it was a great show.

Taylor Scott Band w/Nic Clark at Sky Terrance in Casper 

The Wyoming Blues and Jazz Society are proud to welcome back the Taylor Scott Band to the Sky Terrace Lounge Saturday November 25th. Scott has come a long way since winning the Wyoming Blues Challenge in 2011 with his band, Another Kind of Magick and performing at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis in 2012. Magick band mate and harmonica player extraordinaire, Nic Clark, will be joining the band for this special performance. 

Taylor Scott is an international touring guitarist/singer/songwriter based in Denver, Colorado. He has toured all over the US, Canada, and Europe with both the Taylor Scott Band and blues legend Otis Taylor. 

"Heavily influenced by soul, funk, blues, jazz, and rock & roll, Taylor Scott's music is gaining a reputation for transcending the limitations of a single genre. His diversely influenced "soul/jam" group, The Taylor Scott Band, is a high-powered extension of this mélange of sounds." 
Opening for Taylor Scott will be guitar and harmonica duo AJ Fullerton and Jake Friel. 

Tickets can be purchased in advance for $15 and will be available at the door the day of the show for $20 ($15 for Blues and jazz Society members) reserved tables are also available by calling 307-253-9552. Parking is free south of the terminal building. 

Doors open at 7:00, show starts at 8:00, All Ages.

Gary Small & The Coyote Bros 

Gary Small & The Coyote Bros will be in Casper for a WBJS show at the Sky Terrace Lounge on Oct 21 at 8 pm.  This is one of the best bands in Wyoming, known for their blues and boogie. It's good-time party music.  Gary is well known for his great Carlos Santana covers.  He nails the soaring guitar solos.

Door charge is $5 for WBJS members and $10 for non-members.  Support Live Blues Music!

The Sky Terrace Lounge is a fun and friendly venue with a good stage and comfy seating.  For all blues society events they have a draft beer special:  a frosty pint of Miller Lite for only $3.
