Dara Tucker tribute bands gaining prominence all around the USA

Tribute bands have become so popular these days. As a matter of fact, tribute bands are one of the most popular forms of entertainment today, giving performances on special occasions and even at a large scale corporate event. Although they are not the originals, some of these bands have tribute artists whose voice and singing are as good as, or better than that of the original artists. Some of the best music from yesteryear can be heard by listening to tribute bands of Nashville jazz vocalist sensation Dara Tucker. Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma into a musical family, to a music minister father and a songstress mother, Tucker began singing in a local church at age 5. By age 8 she started playing simple melodies on the piano and then began accompanying her brothers and sisters to perform gospel music at local churches. She continued to refine her singing skills and grind herself as a vocalist and musician throughout her college years. With her rich and emphatic voice, great range and fabulous delivery, Tucker is increasingly making her mark in the jazz industry.

 

Since 2009, the singer/songwriter has been performing all around the USA as well as internationally with her tribute band. Over the past few years, she along with her band has performed the music of legendary jazz musicians at various notable venues including Blue Note  and Smoke (NYC), Snug Harbor (New Orleans), Sculler’s (Boston), and as well at The Takoma Park Jazz Fest, the iRock Jazz Fest, and New Haven, San Jose Jazz Festival, Connecticut’s International Festival of Arts and Ideas. With her deep respect for Great American Songbook, Tucker and her tribute bands give us the opportunity to enjoy the music of a stupendous number and wide range of vocalists, instrumental bands, and jazz musicians. Her tribute band performs timeless songs that have been recorded and performed by the legendary musicians like George Gershwin, Cole Porter, and Irving Berlin, and also Jerome Kern, Harold Arlen, Johnny Mercer, Richard Rodgers, to name a few.

This is the reason Tucker’s tribute band is growing in popularity among the US music lovers with each passing day.

In various concerts she was seen performing with prominent jazz musicians such as Dr. Lonnie Smith, Charlie Hunter, Peter Bernstein, and Helen Sung. She rose to another level of fame and recognition when she opened for heralded Grammy-winning artist Gregory Porter  on June 4, 2016 at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC) in Nashville, TN.
