The Tanya English Band started out at the George's Buffet Monday Night All Stars gigs in Iowa City. Her debut appearance with the Johnny Kilowatt Band at KCCK's "Taste of Jazz" Fundraiser in 2012 was met with great enthusiasm, so after several years of showing up to just sing a few tunes, Tanya decided to create her own band.
With her husband, Ed English on bass, a 25 year veteran of the scene (Blues Instigators, Johnny Kilowatt, Gary Gibson Group, Beaker Brothers), she recruited other players from the amazing pool of area musicians. It seems rare to see a female fronting a blues band, and Miss Tanya does it right. Covering Koko, Sippie, Bonnie, Mavis, Danielle Nicole, and others, she offers rockin' classic and contemporary blues tunes, along with some surprise covers.
