Chris Taylor – Singer/Songwriter/Artist
Nov 15 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

San Antonio Singer/Songwriter/Artist CHRIS TAYLOR will be performing his songs in The Loft and exhibiting his amazing art in the Cinema Gallery lobby of the Uptown Art House on Thursday, November 15 from 6-9pm.  $5 Cover.

Chris Taylor is fearless musical and artistic performer from San Antonio, TX. Whether he is solo, with an acoustic guitar and harmonica or with his band (Chris Taylor & The Setting Sons) you can expect a passionate musical experience. “Here’s a guy with a voice reminiscent of Jeff Buckley, whose musical approach should appeal to you if you hate bubblegum and want something with more substance!” Mike Rimmer – CrossRhythms

He has cowritten two songs with Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics fame and has over 30 albums to his credit. His latest, self titled album, Chris Taylor, released in 2018, is an intimate acoustic album comprised of songs he’s written through the years.

Throughout the 90’s, Taylor was the primary writer and visionary for the band Love Coma, which included Matt Slocum (guitar player for Sixpence None The Richer) and they developed quite a cult following across the US. With both his music and visual artwork, Taylor has remained prolific and prominent in releasing new work for his fans.

Chris Taylor is an artist in every sense of the word. Chris Taylor & The Setting Sons are a rock and roll band. No two Chris Taylor shows have been the same. Acoustic guitar and harmonica. Electric guitar and amplifier. Chris Taylor paints and sings at the same time, creating something unique right in front of you. The Setting Sons provide the muscle, the psychedelia, the rock and roll rhythm to it all.

BLAGGARDS are a four-piece Celtic rock band from Houston, Texas. The Houston Press has described them as “H-town’s heir to the emerald throne of Phil Lynott and Shane MacGowan”. One of the most FUN bands we’ve ever seen, the band plays a raucous mixture of Traditional and original Irish music served with high octane energy.  We defy you to keep your feet from moving in your seats!  This is going to be a fun show!

History and Bio

Blaggards (no “the”, pronounced BLA’ GUARDS or BLA’ GHERDS, depending on where you’re from) formed July 2004 in Houston, Texas.  They play what they call Stout Irish Rock, traditional Irish music mixed with rock n’ roll, informed by everything from Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley to Thin Lizzy and Black Sabbath. Blaggards are most frequently compared to bands like Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphys, and the Pogues.

Blaggards are guitarist/vocalist Patrick Devlin, bassist/vocalist Chad Smalley, drummer Michael McAloon, and fiddler Wes Barlow.

Front man Patrick Devlin grew up in Dublin, Ireland, and moved to Houston in his early 20′s. After working in the local club scene for several years, Patrick saw a demand for Irish rock music that nobody was taking advantage of. In 1996, to this end he formed a band called On The Dole. Although the band did well, opening for legendary Irish touring acts like the Wolfe Tones and the Saw Doctors, eventually Patrick decided it was time to clear the decks and start again.

In 2003, while hosting a weekly open mic at an Irish pub, Patrick met bassist and singer Chad Smalley, a veteran of the Houston music scene who had recently returned from New York and was looking for a new project. The two of them soon began singing and performing together every week, developing a tight vocal harmony style. A year later, Blaggards was born.

Michael, a first generation Scot-American, grew up learning Irish step dancing, winning gold medals all across the United States before picking up the drums at age 13. Mike has toured the country many times with several different Houston bands and studied jazz at the University of North Texas. Mike joined Blaggards in January 2009.

Wes Barlow, born in Memphis, Tennessee, and started playing violin when he was ten years old. After relocating to Texas in the 5th grade, he realized that the fiddle was his calling. He started playing in Texas country bands when he was 16, has won several national classical music competitions and performed on multiple albums. Wes joined Blaggards in January 2017.

Blaggards maintain a rigorous schedule, playing constantly throughout Texas and touring nationally several times a year. We’ve also toured Ireland every year since 2010.

Their music has appeared in movies and TV. An original instrumental entitled “Kerfuffleful” appears in the New Line Cinema motion picture How to Be Single, released February 2016.

“Drunken Sailor” and “Big Strong Man” from our first CD, Standards, were both featured in episode 86 of the CBS series The Good Wife, aired on March 24, 2013.

“Big Strong Man” also appears in the British film The Kid, directed by Nick Moran and based on the best-selling book by Kevin Lewis.
