About tauk: 'TAUK is an eclectic group of five guys from Oyster Bay Long Island, NY. Each of the members, Adam Akpinar (Drums), Alric Carter (Keyboard/Organ), Charlie Dolan (Bass Guitar), Matt Jalbert (Guitar), and Alessandro Zanelli (Vocals), use their varying taste in music to create their sound which uses these different genres of music and encapsulates the many years each of the members has dedicated to studying music at a serious level. Each of them met at the Friends Academy High School in Locust Valley and formed a band that has been committed to creating innovative music that all age groups can enjoy. Their skill at improvisation specifically propels them into directions that many could not even imagine, while their love for melody and harmonic structure allows them to create a dancing, sing-along atmosphere at their shows.

The band plays at various different venues for many different occasions within the entire Tri-State area of New York. They have had the opportunity to play various benefit shows for La Fuerza Unida of Glen Cove, which helps the underprivileged Latino population in that city, and also has had the opportunity to open up for the nationally acclaimed OAR for an AIDS benefit in correlation with the Friends Academy AIDS Awareness club.

Long Island has always had a robust and thriving music scene covering almost every genre you can think of. It's spent the better part of five decades giving the world acts such as Mariah Carey, Public Enemy, Pat Benetar, Twisted Sister, Harry Chapin and hundreds more (it even has it's our own Music Hall Of Fame). Now, in the words of another amazing, and maybe the most famous musician from those parts (by the name of Billy Joel) comes a band "from a town called Oyster Bay, Long Island" who seem intent on adding themselves to the roll call of success in the most fertile music scene in the world: 'TAUK The band's name is derived from a place that most Long Islanders call "The End" - Montauk, LI - but this is only the beginning for these music school trained performance virtuosos. Their road tested act has allowed them to create original material that fans of acts such as Phish, Addison Groove Project, The Grateful Dead and Soulive will absolutely eat up.

in 2007, Long Island's own buzz band Tauk continues to be one of the most played, talked about and written about bands of the year. They have already gained televison airplay in a special interview and live performance piece for the FUSE music television network and radio airplay on NYC's Q104.3, Long Island's 102.3 WBAB, 98.5 The Bone and 107.1 WLIR and are currently in rotation on many college stations including WRHU Hofstra and WUSB Stony Brook. They were recently covered in a "With The Band" feature for Newsday and they graced the front page of Good Times Magazine as the "Local Spotlight" story. These articles serve as the highlights of their press coverage, but are in addition to the many overwhelmingly positive webzine and internet site reviews they also recieved in the past few months. Their summer tour covered almost 20 shows with spotlight dates on Long Island opening for Ants Marching at The Crazy Donkey and opening for Glass Houses at Eisenhower Park, gigs at The Living Room Lounge in Brooklyn and at Rye Playland in Upstate NY and several industry showcases at The Knitting Factory, Pianos and The Lions Den in NYC.
