The Tasty Specials Band is an eclectic mix of musicians that are well versed in the annals of Americana. A newcomer to a Tasty Specials Band show can expect a nice mix of originals, paired well with some of your favorite songs from the past 75 years. Adding extra garnish to this Tasty plate of tunage, is the exceptional harmonies provided by Leslie Fogg, Thom Somerville, Solomon Miles, and David Somerville.

No tasty plate of tunes can go without the meat and bones of the band! To round out the sound you can find Piete Blikslager on Keyboard, David Somerville on Saxophone, Thom Somerville on guitar, Nik Rohr on the drum set, and Ron Knobler on Bass. Your palate will be satisfied with this fantastic night of tunes.

The original songs are mainly written by Thom and David, as well as a Songwriting team called SomerLand. These songs have a heavy base in Blues, Jam, Reggae, with a sprinkle of New Orleans, and have taken on a flavor of their own. Even when playing tunes by Dylan, or Bob Marley, or Cyndi Lauper you will hear a flavor unique to the Tasty Specials!

The Tasty Specials have been playing together for almost two decades. They have played wonderful stages all over the state of Virginia, Maryland, and North Carolina. Such stages include the Church Hill Irish Festival in Richmond VA, The Camel, Three Notch’d Brewery, The Virginia Governor’s Mansion to name a few.

Working on their Debut studio album that will be released in late 2023, the Tasty Specials are working hard so you don’t have to. So, come on out and enjoy a night of great music, fun, and entertainment your musical appetite will be satisfied!
