"Needless to say, Calvin was a resounding success! Now the country club wants to hire him."
- Pam Marshall
Calvin Taylor’s music is as warm as his great big heart....and WOW is it sure fun!! He’s played for many of my clients numerous times. He can take a party from a relaxing, mingling atmosphere to a can’t-get-enough dance party!...and no one can leave without giving Calvin a hug for having had the best time ever!! He’s the best.
