Judge Talford Band
Every once in a while, a group of musicians will come together and the chemistry will just fall into place. Such is the case with this band from Bell Buckle, TN, Judge Talford Band(JTB).
It is the collective goal of the band to make good music that they enjoy playing and that people enjoy listening to. The band takes the listener on a musical journey through time without leaving one's seat. This is done with instruments that are traditionally considered bluegrass instruments, rich vocal harmonies with influences that span multiple genres, and an entertaining stage show. They have already received favorable reviews from the most important people in the industry, the audience.
JTB has appeared on several nationally televised shows. The first, "Song of the Mountain," is viewed in over 190 markets nationwide on the PBS network of stations.
Another notable television appearance was on the "Shotgun Red" television show, which is seen on RFD Television. In 2010, the band opened the SPBGMA Awards show. The band was also selected as showcase alternates at the NACA (National Association for Campus Activities) convention. This is voted on and awarded by a panel of college students. 2013 marks the band's first appearance at Dollywood's Celebrity Theater, and the band will release a new album in June 2014.
