Judge Talford's music genre is a fresh new sound that appeals to a younger audience, while taking the mature audience for a walk down memoy lane. Judge Talford has been entertaining audiences at many venues across the USA. The band has been featured at such venues as Dollywood, Silver Dollar City, Texas Troubador Theatre, Nashville Palace, Orange Blossom Opry and many more. They are a crowd favorite at Fairs, Festivals and Corporate Events.
Judge Talford Band is comprised of five very talented musicians from rural Tennessee. Buddy Mason and Shane Norman had known each other for a long time and eventually ended up playing in the same band. After some time they decided to put their own band together. In the past eight years the other players have come and gone until finally deciding on the current lineup. They are Buddy Mason guitar and vocals, Shane Norman mandolin and vocals, Michelle Bailey fiddle and vocals, Brandon stand up bass and Joey Gipson banjo (who just happens to be a multi-year champion banjo player).
The band was well known in the bluegrass community. They were featured on a TV show called Song of the Mountains and soon they were getting calls to do more and more bluegrass shows. But they wanted to broaden their show by adding other genres. They loved taking classic rock n roll songs from the 50s to today's hits and adding their own twist to make what the band calls "Talfordized".
