Album Notes
It's the complexion you get from the neon nightly beer lights—a tavern tan. And these boys spend a whole lotta time workin' on it.
Yes, Tavern Tan play Live American Music. This is the sound that used to be standard in taverns, pubs, bars, juke joints, dancehalls, and the local dive in every town and city in America...before the Karaoke machine was created and the theme restaurants took their ugly hold. Roots, blues, honky tonk country, R&B, soul, and plain ol' good rock n' roll!

After the success of their first CD, "Foxed, Flawed and Cupshot"—also available on CDBaby—the boys of Tavern Tan shambled into Dan's House Studio (Center Valley, PA) again in the spring of 2007, this time with new full-time bassist Bill Melcher, and blasted into 16 all-new tunes...with Dan McKinney of the classic garage rock outfit The Original Sins not only producing...but again rippin' it up on keyboards for select cuts!

With another simple, crisp, organic production sound, this second Tavern Tan effort explores more facets of their eclectic roots/rock style....from the hard hitting, rocking opening mission statement "Rock n' Roll Shoes", to the acoustic-driven honky-tonk cover of Ray Price's "Crazy Arms", to the hypnotic modal blues of "Come on Home", to the reggae-driven "Gordon & Main", and on to the completely un-definable silliness(or possibly GENIUS) of the funky "Monkey with a Fez On" , this CD confirms that Tavern Tan has absolutely no idea what they are doing...and they'd love to keep it that way. It's just too much fun. Dig it...and let us know what you think.....thanks for listening!
