History


Taylor and Co Covers Band

‘Taylor and Co’ is a four piece band made up of experienced musicians who play a broad spectrum of Classic Covers from the 60’s and 70’s that are recognised and enjoyed by all ages.

Two of the band members played together back in the late 60’s in a band called ‘Communication’ and supported many well known bands back then. ‘The Searchers’ ‘Tremeloes’, ‘The Nashville Teens’, and ‘The Foundations’, to name a few. They reformed in 2005 and played for 7years in a band called ‘Magnettheband’ as a tribute to the 60’s band.

One night when caught short due to illness of one of the members of the band. The band asked B J Taylor a well known musician to help out. B J added a new dimension to the band with his amazing guitar playing and powerful vocals so after a discussion the band asked B J if he would like to join the band as a permanent member. In a moment of madness B J agreed.

B J Taylor has been on the local and National circuit for a many years and has played for numerous well known bands. ‘Hamiltons Power’ a well known country band that played all over Europe, ‘Honey bus’ who had chart success with ’I can’t let Maggie Go’ ‘Ricky Valance’ who was famous for ‘Tell Laura I love her’ He also had a stint with Mike Sheridan an the Nightriders a well known musician who is still on the circuit and more recently the 60’s chart band ‘Union Gap UK’

Magnettheband in the last year decided to call it a day as two of the members decided to retire. So after more discussion a new band was formed ‘Taylor and Co’ with BJ fronting the band.

Taylor and Co are a good time band who like to have fun and get the Audience buzzing they play songs for everyone.
