Tommy Talton Band live performances appeal to all ages, as evidenced by the wide age range of audiences at its live performances. Expect to hear music from many genres from the Tommy Talton, from blues, southern rock and country rock to Americana, R&B and soul.

Tommy Talton was a founding member of Capricorn Records group Cowboy. While in Macon, GA through most of the 70s, Talton was a studio musician recording with artists such as Bonnie Bramlett, Martin Mull, Corky Lang (West, Bruce and Lang, Mountain), Gregg Allman, Dickey Betts, Clarence Carter, country legend Kitty Wells, Alex and Livingston Taylor, Arthur Conley of Sweet Soul Music fame, and more. He toured extensively throughout the U.S. with Cowboy and with the Gregg Allman tour, from Carnegie Hall (as special guests) to Fillmore West in San Francisco and most cities in between. Talton was also the guitarist on Gregg Allman's "Laid Back" album. He lived and toured in Europe throughout the 90s and formed a group there, called The Rebelizers, with members of Albert Lee's band, Hogan's Heroes. Talton returned to the United States and formed the Tommy Talton Band in 2006. Talton performed at the Beacon Theatre in New York City on March 17, 2009, as a special guest with The Allman Brothers Band in celebration of the Band's 40th anniversary, and again in April 2010 at the Macon City Auditorium in Macon, GA.
