Born in Greenville Ms.,the heart of Blues Country Taylor was destined to be an entertainer.Singing in the choir and church plays, from the age of 5, served as basic training for a career which has spanned 30 yrs.
When the nationally known Blues Band,King Floyd was in town and they lost their drummer”the little Stokes boy”came highly recommended.Hence, Taylor’s first professional gig.He was 14 at the time !
Taylor knew the drums were the heart of the band, but the soul was up front.When the opportunity came ,up front he went and never looked back. Stokes began a worldwide tour as a front man of several well known bands.He has done USO shows in Japan,Korea,and Germany .Toured the country and sang on the seas as well,working for Disneys Big Red Boat.He has performed with and opened for, such well known artists as Smokey Robinson,Earth ,Wind,and Fire,and the Doobie Brothers just to name a few.
Currently Stokes performs a high energy single act as well as fronts some local bands from time to time. His vocal perfection combined with his over-the-top showmanship,makes Taylor Stokes an act you don’t want to miss.
