Formed in 2008 by guitarist Eddie Taska, The Blue Note Project has become a blend of many talents, beginning with Mike Mowen on Bass, newest member Mauro Tarakdian on drums, and Scott Niland on vocals, who joined the band in 2014. Blending genres comes naturally to this band, and it’s evident in the music they write. From rock-n-roll to fusion to funk, this band is always coming up with new ways to express itself. Drummer Mauro Tarakdian comes via Brazil where he was raised on all the unique rhythms of his country. Mike Mowen has been teaching bass and playing with a diverse group of musicians his whole life. Eddie comes via the midwest where rock-n-roll was a religion and lead guitarists were heroes. His crisp, melodic, solos, will leave you wanting more. Scott Niland’s tone and range is very reminiscent to Paul Rodgers, and his gravel-ish screams might wake up the ghost of Jim Morrison. If there was one word that best describes this band, it’s “tight.” But they’ll tell you they prefer to be loose. Either way you hear it, the energy in the room will be electric and the songs will deliver a punch that you’d expect from all that talent.
