“Tara is an extremely versatile and professional singer. She always engages the crowd with her performance. Her vocal abilities are outstanding and her piano playing is extraordinary!”
— Katryna Johnson, Marketing Professor at Metropolitan State
Tara B and The Brueskes
Beginning as a child, Tara B sang with her family all throughout northern MN and Ontario, Canada. Through the years, as she also continued that music journey, it led her into starting a band, going solo with Christian and later folk music, being in a girl duo for 8 years and then joining back up with her brother in 2017 as The Brueskes. Tara has found a place in music she can call home through the beautiful rich old songs of Irving Berlin, the Gershwin brothers, Duke Ellington, Ned Washington, Gus Kahn, Rodgers and Hammerstein and many others.She released her second full length solo CD "Those Timeless Vintage Melodies" featuring these great songs of the past. She combines the clarity and purity of a Julie Andrew's style with the infectious and creative improvisations of the crooners and big bands
The Brueskes, Tara and her brother Jeff, create a smooth musical treat through vocals, piano and upright bass.They continue the tradition of classic crooners, singing the old songs of the past. Think Bing Crosby, Tony Bennet, and Ella Fitzgerald with the harmonies of Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme. At every performance they project an engaging warmth and excitement born out of a lifelong love of music and years of performing together.
