A group of teens playing the blues? Yeah, right, I thought. Much to my delight, and everyone else's who were there both at the plaza and in Casper, the boys can play the Blues, and with a musical maturity that seems rare these days. But then that's what the blues have always been about, the heart and soul connection that has absolutely no timeline or age limit. I said a small thank you prayer to the blues Gods, "It's still here and in good hands."
Those hands belong to Taylor Scott, 16, lead guitarist and vocalist; the Uribe brothers -- bassist Louis, 16 and rhythm guitarist Mike, 13; Taylor's brother and keyboardist, Evan Scott, 14; and drummer Mason Carberry, 14.
I went up to Casper and caught their show. They were playing for the Society's monthly get together as an audition, and as a get-to-know. They were hot on Saturday night at the Plaza, but they were on fire and cookin' during their last set in Casper. Needless to say, these guys are going places.
