ONE of the Whitsundays most popular live acts will be playing at Airlie’s Anchor Bar this Saturday, December 13.
Taylor and Silk are a world music tapestry, encompassing a multitude of styles including Motown, jazz, funk, reggae, blues, ska, Latin, soul and more.
Known for being vibrant, moody and passionate all at once, their music is also an instrumental delight, featuring Afro shakers, stomp boxes, real-time guitar loops and soulful saxophone mixed with sassy vocals and rich harmonies.
Sarah Taylor and Steven Silk are also the driving force behind The Natural Culture, local winners of the hotly contested Airlie Beach Festival of Music ‘Battle of the Bands’ competition.
For their show at the Anchor Bar, the duo are likely to be accompanied by ‘friends’ comprising the rhythm section of what is rapidly becoming known as Airlie’s hottest new act.
Sarah Taylor said Saturday’s performance would be all about playing to the crowd and would doubtless have people up on their feet.
“You’ll definitely be up and dancing even when it’s just the two of us,” she said.
Anchor Bar owner Josh Knutson described Taylor and Silk as “just an absolute class act”.
“I’ve had them play at the bar for about five months now and they just really suit the venue,” he said.
“They’re really funky and groovy, they’re extremely professional and it’s amazing music,” he said.
Sarah Taylor said the duo would be giving audiences “a different experience to what you get regularly around town” including quite a few of the duo’s original songs, now pretty popular in Airlie Beach.
There is no cover charge.
