MICK KOLASSA & THE TAYLOR MADE BLUES BAND

Sharing Their Free-Range Blues©

Mick Kolassa & The Taylor Made Blues Band is one of North Mississippi’s

favorite bands, whose love of and talent for the blues is infectious. 

 

When not on the road the band performs regularly on Beale Street in Memphis and at clubs and juke joints in Clarksdale and other Mississippi cities. Their albums have received critical acclaim and significant airplay worldwide. 

 

Playing a combination of original songs, cherished blues classics and some surprising blues “uncovers” of songs not traditionally thought of as blues, the Taylor Made Blues Band keeps audiences enthralled by

fitting the set to the fans to assure their enjoyment of the show. 

 

They are lively and animated in their performances, assuring that the fans enjoy themselves

as they listen to the band playing what Mick calls Free-Range Blues©. 

 

This band brings their love of the blues and a little bit of Mississippi to the stage.

Mick Kolassa could work up an arrangement and sing the phone book (from a small Mississippi town) and make it a hit
