Otis Taylor Band's Impresses Blues Revue at Waterfront Blues Festival in Portland, OR

"...the Otis Taylor Band began their set, with Taylor on guitar and lead vocals, Anne Harris fiddler extraordinaire, Larry Thompson sitting behind the drums, Shawn Starski also on guitar, and bassist Todd Edmunds. Taylor asked the crowd, “How are you guys doing?" Then he encouraged everyone to squeeze up to the stage as close as they could. “Hey Joe” was performed with a completely different arrangement than normal, with a hard-driving rhythm and animated fiddle playing by Harris. Couple that with heavy guitar riffs, backed up by thudding drums and thumping bass that assaulted the ears through sonic vibrations that reached every fiber of one’s physical being and you begin to get the picture."  - Blues Revue
