Live on the Patio series brings Iowa City's The Tanya English Band back to Big Grove!
The Tanya English Band started at the George's Buffet Monday Night All Stars gigs in Iowa City. Her debut appearance at KCCK's "Taste of Jazz" Fundraiser in 2012 was met with great enthusiasm. After several years of showing up to sing a few tunes, Tanya decided to create her own band with husband, Ed English on bass. "Unka Led" has been on the local scene for over 25 years. (Blues Instigators, Johnny Kilowatt, Gary Gibson Group, Beaker Brothers, etc.) 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.
The band features IC guitar phenom, Sam Price, a second generation blues man. Classically trained, Sam has developed a unique, heart-driven, style. Keyboard ace Sean Seaton, (Shade of Blue, the Fez, Bernemann Brothers) with Paul Cunliffe on drums round out the line-up. Featured at last year's N Liberty Blues & BBQ and this year's Soul & Blues Fest, The Tanya English Band features songs of love gone wrong and love gone right. It's family-friendly blues for fun!
