TAND THE BAND
Tand is a collision of two musical worlds from the past smashing together to create a sum greater than the parts. The band mission is to take listeners on a different musical journey each night by weaving together catchy songs with energetic improvisation that will always keep you guessing and dancing. Funky spirited, high energy, improvisational, party rock with heart and soul. Don't miss it.
The journey (swimming us) to Tand was started by an inaugural backyard jam between Lynchburg, VA native Taylor Godsey (Lead Guitar & Vocals) and Peter Krause (Bass & Vocals) somewhere around 2013 in Pompano Beach, FL that would lead them to the formation of Sawgrass Express. Sawgrass would go on to build a strong local following in South Florida, later disbanding when senior member, Tripp Gray, moved out of the state.
Taylor was then introduced to keyboardist Daryl Wolff (Cypress, El Groundscoro, The BOSS Project, Brother Bean - also famously the brains behind Aura Music Festival, and a co-producer of Suwannee Hulaween) and one of the area’s premier rock drummers, Ali Nassar (Merry FranksterZ, Two Story Double Wide, Kinlin, Kezia, 40 Below Summer, Supergrub - which featured Ben Kenney from Incubus, etc.) to form Fugu. In the 18 months, Fugu was together, they shared the stage with national acts like Perpetual Groove, Kung Fu, and The Nth Power, and made a festival appearance at Florida festival Orange Blossom Jamboree, all the while building a strong local following of friends and fans, new and old.
In October of 2017, Taylor and Pete lost dear friend, bandmate, and aforementioned Tripp Gray. The loss would inspire new music - that music providing solace through difficult times. Eventually, the answer became clear: combine the musical worlds of the past to create something based around new and original music written by Taylor, while also featuring a few choice originals from the late, great Tripp Gray.
Since October of 2018, Tand has gained a name for themselves in their home market of Southeast Florida, as well as throughout the state of Florida. In the short time that the band has been together they have shared the stage with multiple national touring, including Perpetual Groove, Spafford, Particle, the Roosevelt Collier Band, and The Heavy Pets.
