The Taylor Hickey Band formed in early summer of 2012 with the idea of playing small venues a couple times per month. However, their popularity quickly plunged them into a full schedule in North Texas. Taylor Hickey attended South Plains College where he started performing and writing music. When he moved back to his home in Mineral Wells he hooked up with a group of veteran performers, Bassist Oscar Barbour, Percussionists Eric Heskett and Lead Guitarists/Keyboardists Mike Walley. Mike Walley has performed in the Dallas / Fort Worth area for over 20 years and has played with several A-Club bands performing at Billy Bob’s regularly. Oscar and Eric were making the transition to country from Rock & Metal.
THB plays a wide variety of music but they are primarily a Texas Country / Red Dirt band. However, they play a good mixture of Texas Country, Classic / 90’s Country and Rock in order to keep the crowds dancing. THB prides themselves on entertaining every crowd based on what that particular crowd is looking for and responding too. THB also prides themselves on punctuality and professionalism and is highly respected among club owners and managers. Everything THB plays is geared towards the dance crowd, but with high entertainment quality. THB offers Bass, Drums, Lead Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Harmonica, and Keyboards. They have performed in front of large audiences while opening for Stoney Larue, Brandon Jenkins, Max Stalling, Bart Crow, Jack Ingram, aswell as sharing the stage with other local musicians.
