  JT Taylor - booking information

  James JT Taylor - booking information

"The Voice"
  Former lead singer of Kool & The Gang (1979-1988)

When JT Taylor joined Kool & the Gang, it was a step up from his former job as an amateur nightclub singer from New Jersey. Taylor was also no stranger to Kool & the Gang's music.

  J.T. Taylor - booking information  Together they released the album "Ladies' Night." Taylor's creamy voice gave the album popularity, the singles "Too Hot" and "Ladies' Night" reaching gold and platinum status. The group's change to a pop sound was raised by producer Eumir Deodato, who, starting with Ladies' Night, produced the group's next four platinum and gold albums, between 1979 and 1982. With the help of Deodato, the group's next album, "Celebrate," became one of the biggest hits of their career.

Kool & the Gang separated amicably from their producer in 1983 and decided to create their own recordings in-house. The 1983 album "In the Heart" was produced by Khalis Bayyan (Ronald Bell), Kool & the Gang and engineer Jim Bonnefond, but in all following albums, Khalis Bayyan became the group's secret production weapon. From the mid-1980s until the early 1990s Khalis Bayyan kept the sound established. However, rock guitars began to replace horns, and their sound was transformed under the power of digital technology. Bayyan called his production set-up the IBMC or Itty Bitty MIDI Committee, using MIDI computer synthesizers and mixers.

  J.T. Taylor - booking information  In the 1980s, Bayyan produced the double-platinum "Emergency" and the gold "Forever."

The biggest change of the 1980s, however, came with the departure of lead singer JT Taylor. The vocalist, who left in 1988, reportedly departed amicably with plans to make a solo album. The gang replaced Taylor with singers/instrumentalists Sonnie "Skip" Martin and Odeen Mays, Jr. They released two studio albums, "Sweat" (1989) and "Unite" (1998). Taylor released three solo albums, produced by Khalis Bayyan and JT Taylor himself. There was big news in the summer of 1995, Taylor returned to the band and they released a new album, "State of Affairs."

The reunion tour with Kool and the Gang started in 1995 and ended in
March 1999. Since that time JT has never stopped performing. He put together his own band and has been touring throughout the United States and around the World.

J.T. Taylor now performs all the hit songs he sang with Kool & the Gang including:

  • Celebration
  • Get Down on It
  • Ladies Night
  • Fresh
  • Joanna
  • Cherish
  • Too Hot
  • All I Want Is Forever
  • Heart to Heart
  • Long Hot Summer Night
  • Baby I'm Back
  • How

(i.e., what is the booking fee to hire JT TAYLOR for an event?)
(i.e., what is JT TAYLOR booking fee to perform at an event?)

Official booking fees for JT TAYLOR, or any other celebrity, are determined based on a number of factors and may change at anytime without prior notice.

Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist's calendar, whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the artist's concerts, the current demand for the artist's music, market activity, etc.

As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist's price to increase as the artist becomes more popular or decrease when becoming less popular.

Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at anytime. Generally, the artist's manager has a role in the decision to accept any particular offer from a talent buyer.

To learn the most current artist's pricing, or the estimated artist's fee for your particular event, simply click on the "Let's Get Started!" link found on this page. Then, send us your request for booking information.
