“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.”

Perhaps that is one reason why Tallan is a man of integrity, down-to-earth while still reaching for the stars."

Ray Smith, Director of Marketing, Hoggy's Live!
