On March 10, the Chicago-based Melvin Taylor Blues Band — with Melvin Taylor on vocals and lead guitar, Felton Crews on the bass, and Krzysztof Zawadzki on drums — performed a special concert at Warsaw’s Intercontinental Hotel.

Melvin’s fingers moved faster than our camera could capture.   He also played with the guitar behind his head, with a glass… we’re not saying you should try it at home, but it was definitely cool. 

While they were touring Poland, the guys also held a jazz clinic for the students of Bednarska Music College.   We had a lot of fun and hope they come back.

While we’re at it, if you want to make sure you’re invited to other cultural events, make sure we have your contact information by writing to us at culture – underscore – warsaw – at – state – dot – gov.
