This is a Cookin’ vintage presentation, weaving stories of Graffiti Gold in tributes to Rock n Roll legends, like Elvis Presley, Bill Halley and his Comets, Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, The Big Bopper, Little Richard, The Coasters, Fats Domino, Sam the Sham and more. Music was never better and you can “Remember When” at this show.

What to Expect
Prepare yourself for a return to the days of Rolled Up T-Shirts, Peddle Pushers, Penny Loafers, Saddle Shoes and Blue Suede shoes. Some audience members even attend wearing the classic outfits and hair styles. Let your mind wander back to those special Rock n Roll Gold days. Tom Tayback surrounds himself with some of the best musicians in the southwest in order to do justice to these great Golden Oldies. Anything else would be Rock ‘n Roll sacrilege.
With an acting background in Hollywood movies & TV, and as the multi-award winning anchor of 780 KAZM’s morning show “The DUO” in Sedona, AZ, Tom Tayback brings seasoned presence to his performances that will help you remember and re-live the great period in time that brought us the slang terms Cloud Nine - Cookin’ – Cool – Cooties - Deuce Coup – Hipsters - Party Poopers - Pop The Clutch - Rag Top - Stacked - and Think Fast.
You might also remember his uncle Vic Tayback, who starred for 9 seasons as Mel Sharples on the CBS hit “Alice”. As a Screen Actors Guild member, Tom’s acting highlights can be viewed at the Internet Movie Database site ( (link hidden) ). From ‘89 to ’91, he produced his own syndicated TV variety show on KTUP Channel 45 in Phoenix, while also hosting radio shows in Phoenix and Las Vegas.

In ’95 he starred as Homicide Detective Sgt Gold in “Undercover” (with Meg Foster) for Axis Films International. And, in ’96 Tom starred in his favorite role as the new “Grizzly Adams” in “Treasure Of The Bear”, with Joseph Campanella.
