Dean Taylor & The Better Days / Blog


Unfortunately due to an illness in the band, we have to cancel tonight's performance at Jeffrey's in Alphareatta. We'll let you know when we can reschedule ASAP. BUMMER!!!

HOWEVER, we will be up and running for the show at Smith's Olde Bar next Saturday when we open for Justin Kennedy. See ya there!

We're Opening for Artimus Pyle!

We've been chosen as one of the opening acts for former Lynyrd Skynyrd drummer Artimus Pyle at the 120 Tavern either May 17 or May 18!

New Song on the Radio!

Well, it was again a real blast to hear our song "Back When Things Were Good" on 94.9 FM's local music show Backyard Country Saturday night! The DJ gave us a really nice introduction, even mentioning all the band menbers! I hope everyone will get a chance to stop by their website to vote for our song so we can be on again this week as well. They even want you to vote multiple times. Would 1,000 times be asking too much?!! Ha! http://www.949thebull.com/pages/byc_voting.html

Seriously, Thank You so much for all your support and interest.

Ready for the New Year?

Now that the whirlwind of the holidays are winding down, we hope everyone is full of good food and treats and is ready for the New Year. It's coming faster than a speeding bullet! We'll be playing at a private party NYE but wanted to let everyone know that we'll be at Jefferey's in Alpharetta on Friday January 11. 8:30-12:30 for our official Atlanta debut. The official invite will be forthcoming but mark it on your calendars now because we'll be having some special guests stopping by for a great All Star jam for the last set.

Get Well Soon, Bro!

Our thoughts and prayers are with Brian Harrison, our new guitar player who is undergoing shoulder surgery on Wed. Dec 19 for a torn rotator cuff (OW!!) He actually hurt it saving a friend from falling off a cliff on a hike in the mountains. What a guy!..a real hero!

We're on the Radio!

Be sure to tune in 9 PM Saturday night on 94.9 FM - The Bull, to hear our new song "C'est La Vie". In order to stay on the show from week to week we need you to vote for us each week:


If it's not too much, could you vote about 1 or maybe 2,000,000 times? Ha-Ha!

New Bass Player

The Better Days would like to welcome Jim Horton into the band. He brings a great attitude, good vocals and will provide the missing link we've needed. Brian Harrison, who has been our fill-in bass player will now switch to guitar to fill out the sound. Now we can get to business!!
