Don't miss America's #1 James Taylor tribute Sweet Baby James, as Nashville musician Bill Griese performs the songs of the legendary JT. Not your typical tribute band fare, and not a "look-alike" act, Griese delights audiences using only his uncanny Taylor-like vocals & guitar playing, and a refreshingly real stage presence.

Fans rave: "the next best thing to James," "close my eyes and it’s JT," "James would be proud," "amazing guitar playing," "everything he does honors JT," "his voice is spot on," etc. Enjoy the ultimate James Taylor experience with favorites like Fire and Rain, You’ve Got a Friend, Shower the People, How Sweet It Is, and Steamroller, celebrating one of our greatest troubadours.
