"On the Windy City Blues Society Stage, young blue star Tallan Noble Latz commanded a crowd.... he played a stunning guitar set, full-throttled with energy to spare, which he used to jump on amps and get the crowd screaming. Latz is a force."
"Life has it's special moments and one of mine was the first time I saw Tallan perform at the Stevie Ray Vaughan Ride and Concert in Dallas, Texas. Watching him perform that day was one of those moments in my life, a special day I'll never forget! It was pure magic and the crowd couldn't get enough of Tallan. He IS the whole package!"
“The entire planet needs to see this kid play.”
“I’ve had Tallan on our show for years now. He’s an AWESOME performer! The crowd goes crazy when he plays! He STOLE the show again this year…This kid ROCKS!!!””
“Tallan is a Wisconsin native and exuded pure showmanship and blaring riffs that left most speechless. I was exhausted.””
“He has accomplished so much at such a young age that he's making himself a tough act to follow. ”
"And when he leans into a whole-note bend and makes that Paul Reed Smith 513 scream, you're hooked. He's a phenom.”
“Latz stalked the stage like an old pro, his fingers burning up the fret board. Latz's performance transcended the novelty of his age. His emotive take on Stevie Ray Vaughn's "Life Without You" was a touching performance by any standard. ”
"Tallan is well on his way to becoming a superstar!”
“Tallan Noble Latz is, after all, is still a kid. It can be hard to remember that fact when you watch the 10-year-old guitar prodigy command the stage like he did during an afternoon set at the M&I Classic Rock Stage. Latz, an Elkhorn native who first gained fame in these parts a couple years ago.... mixes blues showmanship, youthful energy and a pretty solid command of dive-bombing 12-bar fretwork.”
"Tallan has the magic in his fingers and his delivery is magic itself.”
"Keep on playing young man ..you've got a bright future. Much love”
"It was a pleasure to share the stage with you. Can’t wait till we do it again.”
"The first time you hear Tallan bend a note and make the guitar absolutely scream, you know you're in the presence of a phenom. He plays with both soul and intensity way beyond his years because he has a God-given gift, plain and simple. Perhaps that is one reason why Tallan is a man of integrity, down-to-earth while still reaching for the stars."
"Tallan is unbelievable as a musician and as a kid! Tallan’s got high expectations for himself and I’m not going to bet against him!”
"Just keep doing what you’re doing, playing what you feel and your music will take you to the top.”
"The moment I seen Tallan jump off of the amp, I knew he was my man!”
“While some kids are home playing Guitar Hero on their PlayStation, 10-year-old Tallan Noble Latz was on stage being one. The diminutive Elkhorn guitar phenom, who appeared on "America's Got Talent" last year, wowed the crowd with his grown-up licks at the Classic Rock Stage. ”
"Tallan is one of a kind, he’s got it and it flows from him like magic.”
"Nobody told me he could play like that."
"You passed the audition. I didn't know what to expect but you can definitely play at my concert on Saturday!"
"Are you kidding me, did you see that!"
"You see so many musicians who can play, but they don't have the soul and the feel and you do... you got the vibe! Tallan's got soul and he's an extraordinary talent! He is simply AMAZING!!"
"I couldn't believe my ears, I just wanted to stop what I was doing and listen. I asked, is that really a kid? Tallan is amazing!"
"T-Man has IT, one in a million have IT and he has a ton of IT, so much at such a young age that it's scary! Now I know the blues are in good hands! He can play with me anytime, anywhere!"
"Right here, this is the future of blues!!!"
"Tallan's future is going to be whatever he wants it to be! He's way ahead of the curve."
"Tallan is amazing and he's an inspiration to all of us. His talent is matched only by his passion and enthusiasm. Tallan is an intelligent, polite and generous little boy offstage and when he's on stage... he plays the blues as if he's been doing it for 60 years."
"When I see somebody at that age, that amazing on guitar, I just have to try to express myself the best I can how good that is.”
"To watch a boy at your age come out and do that (rock the guitar) is one of the most extraordinary things I've ever seen in my life."
"I have never witnessed anything like I was about to see in the course of my music evolution. Never. An averaged sized nine-year-old boy, by the name of Tallan “T-Man” Latz. He opened up like a raging bluesman in his finest. He played his guitar behind his head and cranked out riffs that would have embarrassed Jimi Hendrix himself."
"You are a true prodigy and I am very proud of you.. one blues wonder kid to another. You are so far ahead of me at your age its not funny."
"You know you got a major career in front of you kid...You got charisma!"
