Bio

Artist Information

Tallan Noble Latz (aka: The T-Man) now 9 years old, seems to be destined for the big stage. He has been playing music since the age of 3, picking up the guitar for the first time at 4 and finally getting serious about the guitar at age 5.

Everyone is talking about this young guitar slinger, who possesses an old musical soul, the way he carries and conducts himself on stage is something that just has to be seen. As one reporter put it, ¨When T-Man takes the stage, people stop what they're doing and collectively stare. People entering the room look up and stop as if their shoes were suddenly glued to the floor, not moving again until the song is over, when they reflexively break into wild shouts and applause. Everyone is saying the same thing ¨You gotta see this kid called T-Man!!!¨

This is what fellow musicians and reporters are saying about Tallan:

As GM Planell, (a reporter for ChicagosRock.com) after watching Tallan’s last performance of 2008 wrote, “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. On a Fender Telecaster, this child 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. Tallan is a Wisconsin native and exuded pure showmanship and blaring riffs that left most speechless. I was exhausted.”

Joe Bonamassa said of Tallan T-Man Latz, "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."

Buddy Guys said of Tallan: “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.”

Jonny Lang said ' "Tallan's future is going to be whatever he wants it to be! He's way ahead of the curve."

John Schuld, co-organizer of the Kenosha Bloomin' Days Festival, stated "Tallan is amazing and he's an inspiration to all of us. His talent is matched only by his passion an
